|Home: BigScreen Journal - Bakersfield, CA: UA East Hills Mall 10 to Close June 30, 2010|
The Bakersfield Californian reported on Friday that the UA East Hills Mall 10 in Bakersfield, California will close at the end of June:
The Californian learned Friday that the United Artists East Hills Mall 10 theater complex is closing at the end of the month. UA is part of the Regal Entertainment Group, which includes Edwards Cinemas.
"The whole mall is going down," said Gizel Gallardo, at the theater Friday to see "Toy Story 3." "There aren't enough stores, and they just don't have the customers."
UA employees declined to answer questions Friday, but Bakersfield's Edwards Cinema manager Herman Mil confirmed the sister theater's closure, saying the last day of operation would be June 27. Mil said he was not authorized to say more, referring questions to the district office in Fresno. Calls there were referred to Regal's Tennessee headquarters, closed when the news surfaced. East Hills Mall manager Anne Lynch did not return calls Friday.The movie complex is the last anchor store in the beleaguered mall, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November 2009.
