I live in nearby Belleville and can confirm the cinema and mall has been demolished entirely with the exception of the sears building and a small mall hallway which used to contain a restaurant and Joannes fabrics. Walmart, Kohl's and a couple strip malls now sit where the mall was.

You should change the status to demolished, the entire mall was torn down except for a Sears store. A Walmart opened on the site in 2010.

The theater is long gone now.

Demoliton of the mall began in February 2009. Bakers Square is closed now, but a new strip mall called "Livonia Marketplace" will open in place. It will now feature a Wal-Mart but there already is a Wal-Mart in Livonia, it''s at Wonderland Mall at the corner of Plymoth and Middle Belt.

The new Livonia Marketplace will open in the summer of 2010.

Opened in 1965 as a twin, with 1000- and 510-seat auditorium, the Livonia Mall Cinema I & II, as its name implies, was built at the Livonia Mall. It purportedly cost $2 million to construct, and advertised "picture window" screens, which were just screens on sunken walls. It also featured a small "art gallery" in its early years. In the 80s its main auditorium was divided into two 455 seat auditoriums, thus it was renamed the Livonia Mall Cinema I,II,III. It was renamed again in 1991, as the Cinema Livonia Mall, and by this time, its largest screen (510 seats) had Dolby sound installed. When the mall received a facelift during the 80s, the theater was not included, and by then was notorious for its bad seats, sticky floors and generally dirty appearance. General Cinemas, which was the theater's original owner, sold the triplex to Cinemark in the early 90s, which turned it into a bargain price house. MJR Theatres later ran the theater in the 90s, but today it is independently owned, and called the American Family Cinemas.

Opened by General Cinemas in the Livonia Mall for $2 million, the 2 auditoriums held 1000 and 510 seats respectively. The theatre boasted a "picture window screen" and a small art gallery. Later known as the Livonia Mall Cinemea I, II & III and as the Cinema Livonia Mall. The largest auditorium had Dobly sound but the place was a bit run-down until the Cinemark chain updated it a bit, adding stereo sound to all auditoriums and switching to a $1.00 ticket price in 1992. I remember this was the first multi-plex I ever went to marveling at the notion there were FOUR auditoriums in one place!
