Information for this tour was contributed by Dave Kingham.

Westgate Cinema City opened in 1971 and was designed by William Riseman Associates. It was GCC's first "built-as" 4 screen theatre, not resulting from divisions or additions in a space previously occupied by a Kroger supermarket.

Cinema I - 350 Seats, Cinema II - 300 seats, Cinema III - 170 seats, Cinema IV - 140 seats: an imaginative, although impractical, floor plan.

Westgate was closed by GCC in 1991 and the space was converted to a food court, and a new 8-screen theatre was built on an out-lot from the mall. In the spring of 2006 the whole place, mall and the newer theatre was demolished, to be redeveloped into a 'lifestyle center'.
