The Seminole 8 Touchstar Cinema in Seminole, Florida is permanently closed, and the building at Seminole Mall was demolished in May 2015. This demolition was the first step in extensive plans to demolish the former mall property and replace it with a modern outdoor mall called Seminole City Center. A 12-screen movie theater is one of several proposed establishments expected to reside in the City Center mall. The complex plans to open in 2016.
