The Kerasotes San Jose ShowPlace ICON at Valley Fair in Santa Clara, California is opening to the public tonight, January 17, 2019.

The new ten-screen theater is located in the Westfield Valley Fair mall on Stevens Creek Boulevard and the San Thomas Expressway, just north of I-280. It is about five miles west of downtown San Jose. The location is near the site of the former Century Dome theaters; the Winchester Century 21, Winchester Century 22, and Winchester Century 23 in San Jose, which closed in 2014. The closest theaters are the CineArts @ Santana Row, the Towne 3 Cinema, and the AMC Saratoga 14 in San Jose.

The Mercury News published an article recently about the theater's opening:

The bar will be raised on going to the movies in the South Bay when the new ShowPlace ICON Theatre opens for business Thursday night at Westfield Valley Fair. It’s the latest piece of the shopping center’s $1.1 billion renovation and expansion and amps up the mall’s entertainment factor big time.

When you say the bar is being raised, that’s actually true: The 10-screen cineplex’s second floor includes the Lobby Lounge, a 21-and-over glam bar and seating area that offers upscale flatbreads, burgers and other snacks as well as beer, wine and craft cocktails. If you can pull yourself away, the three ICON X auditoriums on that level offer reserved VIP seating areas, reclining leather chairs and in-theater dining. Even the downstairs concessions stands are beyond the norm, with orders made on touchscreens and picked up elsewhere.
