Former Kingsgate Cinema

The City of Mansfield has issued a demolition order for the former Kingsgate Cinema, 1290 Park Ave. West.

MANSFIELD -- It turns out Skilken Gold officials were right. Their building that once housed the Kingsgate Cinema does need to be torn down.

Now the City of Mansfield has ordered that work to be done.
