The Goodrich Canton 7 GDX in Canton Township, Michigan closed May 9, 2019.

Located on Ford Road just west of I-275, the theater was known as the Canton 6 when it opened in 1985.

On April 10, the theater posted the following message on its Facebook page:

After many years of serving the community of Canton, we have made the decision to close our doors on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at GQT Canton 7 GDX. We thank everyone for your loyal business over the past 20 years, and we are happy to have had two decades of amazing moviegoers. *If you have gift cards or use FMG Rewards, these are accepted at GQT Quality 16 in Ann Arbor or any GQT theater. Thank you for the memories

They don't mention why the theater closed, but it likely faced stiff competition from the Emagine Canton, which is just two miles to the east, on the other side of I-275. The MJR Westland Grand Cinema 16 on Wayne Road is another three miles further east.

Based on an article published in Hometown Life (see below), the theater will become a fitness center.

Goodrich Quality Theaters, Inc. continues to operate movie theaters around Michigan (including the aforementioned Goodrich Quality 16 in Ann Arbor), as well as in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri.
