The Plaza Cinemas at Chapel Hill in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio closed January 4, 2013. The closing of the Akron-area theater was first announced in December in an article publised in the Akron Beacon Journal:
Plaza Cinemas at Chapel Hill will shut down early next year, about two months after celebrating its 25th anniversary.
The eight-screen complex, part of The Plaza at Chapel Hill shopping strip off Howe Avenue, will show movies through Jan. 3 and then cease operations, said David Huffman, director of marketing for the theater’s operator, regional chain Cleveland Cinemas of Solon.
Huffman said Cleveland Cinemas has been operating the theater under a management agreement with Plaza at Chapel Hill owner Visconsi Cos. Ltd., and Visconsi wants to find another use for the property.

An article a few days later in the Record-Courier quotes David Huffman about the future use of the building:
...Visconsi has decided the property "is going to be used for a new purpose, but I'm not entirely sure what that purpose is." However, he added, "it's not going to be a theater."
The theater opened in the late 1980's as the GCC The Plaza 8 by General Cinema. It became part of AMC Entertainment in 2002, when the latter bought the former, and renamed AMC The Plaza 8 at Chapel Hill. AMC sold it to Cleveland Cinemas in February 2008 and its name was changed to Plaza Cinemas at Chapel Hill.
