This cinema was originally owned/operated by General Cinema or GCC. It was the first in 1993 to have Dolby Surround sound for the movie Jurassic Park in theaters 1 and 4. (each 350+persons) Theaters 2,3,6, and 7 were smaller theaters, that were in fact stadium type seating. 1,4,5, and 8 were pit style meaning they were on a gradual slope going down into the theater.
This theatre is up and running. They play Indian movies as well as Hollywood movies. I have been there a couple of times to see two Indian movies. The last time I went there was Mid-2007 and this theatre has the WORST sound. The speakers just scream and the picture quality is just about okay. The seating in NOT stadium seating.
The Novi Town Center 8 passed quietly into history on 11/27/2005. Not all that suprising as it was never a great theatre to begin with, even for a multiplex. It was a bit dated in terms of the seating and sound. The location was somewhat obscure as well, sitting behind the large Town Center Complex. It was only a matter of time before the more modern eMagine complex nearby would seal its fate, although that is hardly a great theater either.
