Springfield, OR: Gateway Mall Plans Keep Cinemark 17 But Toss Discount Cinemark Movies 12

Theater PhotoThe owners of the Gateway Mall in Springfield, Oregon are proposing a redevelopment of the mall that would add several large retailers while keeping existing large tenants, such as the Cinemark 17 but the discount-priced Cinemark Movies 12 - Gateway Mall would be closed and the food court would be razed.

The Register-Guard published a story about the plans on September 12, 2013:

The plans filed with the city would close the mall’s discount movie theater and raze the existing food court. The newer 17-screen theater would remain.

Sandi Schnider, a 27-year-old Eugene resident, has been going to the Gateway Mall since she was a teenager and said she would be sad to see the theater go. She sees movies there a few times a month.

“I don’t want to pay $8 to see a movie, but $1.50 has been awesome,” she said.

The cleared space would make room for large retailers and smaller shops, which possibly could include some eateries, accessible from an outdoor pedestrian walkway, according to the plans. That would replace the current layout of small shops on each side of an interior corridor running the length of the mall.
