Cincinnatti Mall cinema closes

CINCINNATI, OH — After being taken over by Rave Cinemas recently, the Showcase Cinemas in the Mills mall has closed.

In the year since new owners bought the 1.6 million-square-foot Cincinnati Mills, renamed it Cincinnati Mall and announced plans to redevelop it, the center has lost a dozen tenants and fallen delinquent on its property taxes.

The theater on the mall’s second level showed its last films Sunday. Guess Factory Outlet, Lane Bryant Outlet and Treehouse Kids also closed their stores in recent months.

Sounds like this is going down the same road as the Rooling Acres Mall in Akron Ohio. Once a thriveing mall, it now only has 2 of the 3 anchor stores left, Sears outlet and J.C. Penney outlet. The entire mall is empty. And it all started with new owners, stores leaving and delinquent taxes.

Naturally the first thing new owners do is jack up the rent. Then they wonder where everyone has gone.
