|Home: BigScreen Journal - Newark, CA: Cinedome 7 Newark Closed|
The Cinedome 7 Newark in Newark, California closed the weekend of August 4, 2012. In June, the theater reduced prices drastically, a move that we saw as either a way to complement the nearby 16-screen Century at Pacific Commons in Fremont, or just a final gasp for business by a dying theater. Turns out that the latter scenario won out.
The theater's closure has prompted the city to examine how to revitalize the mall. The Newark Patch reported on August 6th that a community meeting was going to be held to discuss plans for the area.
The 30-year-old theater was located in the NewPark Mall, which seems to be having some issues with maintaining viable traffic to support its tenants. An article posted on MercuryNews.com quotes a mall executive as saying that its occupancy has "been steady" but declined to comment on the mall's vacancy rate. The impact of the theater's closure will surely be felt by the other tenants, and one would hope that the mall and city officials see the writing that is on the wall.
In addition to the Century at Pacific Commons, there are more than a dozen other theaters within 10 miles of the Cinedome's location.
