Notes:

This was a two-screen complex located adjacent to the Eastland Bowling Center. It was built by Art Narlock in 1970. The address in the old days was 1477 W. Center Rd. which is confusing.

These 2 theaters closed after a subsequent owner (Rory Dunkel) built a new quad theater next door which eventually became the Hampton Cinemas. All of these screens are now dark. Also known as Eastland I & 2.

The Eastland Theater & Lanes has been being converted to a storage facility for a while now. I saw all the wood from the lanes put out for the taking a couple summers ago. The main doors were expanded too. The Bay City 6 to the east of it is now a Life Church.

From inside the bowling alley you can get a good view through some locked glass doors of the inside of the lobby and one of the theaters. It appears as if a fair amount of demolition was done and then stopped. There is no longer a wall between the lobby and the theater and rubble is everywhere. The sloped floor of the theater is still evident but not much else that identifies it for what it was.
