Central Park Mall holds its grand opening (right).
After almost 20 years of showing movies, the North Star Cinema closes. The triple-screen theater owned and operated by Boston-based GCC Theaters, Inc. showed its final movie today. Steve Colson, GCC regional vice president said “It was determined that based on our receipts from box office attendance at the theater, it would be better if we were not at the North Star Mall location.” (The final movies shown at the theater were: “Sahara” starring Brooke Shields, “Lassiter” starring Tom Selleck and “Blame It On Rio” starring Michael Caine.)
