The band Frontier Ruckus used this cinema as the cover of their album Deadmalls & Nightfalls and a lot of their lyrics are about Summit Place Mall. (I can't include photos for some reason, but a quick Google will show you. ) They also do a music video outside of this place. Just another random bit for you guys. Oh, and in 2015 Oakland County Police Department was doing test-driving through the parking lot.

First, to my personal knowledge, the old Summit Place Cinemas had 3 screens, not 2. Here goes. Me & one other gent were the final managers there at Summit in the 90's. I was there when it closed. The mall next door was open, but has since shut down, too.

It was sad to hear, but they didn't put much money into it or keep it more up to date. We always got the movies as they were weaning down from the other two big ones nearby. I had friends visit, family visit, lots of Mom's or teachers with their kids or students to the cartoons, and others just looking to relax under the screen where it wasn't jam packed & hard to sit comfortably. Admission was less, but of course popcorn wasn't! I worked as cashier for them at another location back in the 80's.

That one & the two larger ones nearby were torn down way before Summit this month. Another in Auburn Hills is still standing, but empty for years. I hadn't even heard it was going down yet, but found out as I passed by on 3/14/14. It was a fond flashback still passing by Summit so often here.

As I say, tho, at least I got a parting gift from them. They told me take the poster frames that were on the front of the building if I wanted to. So I did! I still have a ton of posters to fit them, too! Oh, the flashback. I still miss the little thing, but a good memory to ponder on once in awhile.

So long, Summit.

Yes, this was in fact Summit Place Cinemas 1-3. These are the correct pictures. The picture under the other Summit Place Cinema article is actually just a picture of an entrance into Summit Place Mall FYI.

General Cinemas sold this theater to National Amusements in 1983 and it was converted to three screens. Capacities were as follows: 1-576, 2-395, 3-376(Is this the same as Summit Place Cinemas?).
