Not quite what I'd call getting their lives together.

In my dreams, there would be a small grocery at that site. Something like an Aldi's or Sprouts. For those times when us 80907 folks don't want to drive all the way to TJ or Costco.The Safeway at the Bon is the pits IMO.

There used to be a grocery store there. The seasonal area that K-Mart used was the grocery store. It was not any major chain but was some off the wall discount store. It was slightly frightening. An Aldi would be cool.

The Vasa Fitness that will be moving in also has a site on Cheyenne Mtn Blvd. Basketball, racquetball, free weights, cycling, cross-training, cardio, pool, child care capability, and even a movie room with workout equipment. This is an interesting addition to have in the area since 24 Hr Fitness left the area for points south, north, and east.

Either way, an Arizona company plans to bring one of the entertainment industry’s hottest concepts to Colorado Springs next year when it opens the city’s first dine-in movie theater in a shuttered Kmart northwest of Fillmore Street and Nevada Avenue.

RoadHouse Cinemas, which has similar venues in Scottsdale and Tucson, plans to remodel a portion of the old Kmart to accommodate a 12-screen complex where moviegoers can order burgers, pizzas, tacos, sandwiches, pretzels, cocktails and desserts from their luxury recliners. The food and drink — ordered before the movie starts or even as the film runs — is served to them while they watch first-run hits and throwback classics."


"RoadHouse expects to invest $7 million to $7.5 million to remodel about 45,000 square feet of the 104,000-square-foot Kmart store, Cassell said. The theaters would occupy 35,000 square feet, and the Rail Yard would cover another 10,000. Together they’ll employ about 150 full- and part-time people, he said.

The company is targeting a fall 2019 opening, he said."


Interesting concept. You relax in the recliner and they bring you food and drinks to enjoy while you veg out and watch a movie.

I bet it will be more popular than the new gym also planned for this site

"Utah-based Vasa Fitness, which opened its first Springs location this year in a former Albertsons store on the south side, plans to take the rest of the Kmart building for a 60,000-square-foot fitness center, Egan said."

WOW, how far behind the times is Colorado!? Alamo Drafthouse out of Austin and Studio Movie Grille out of Dallas are Restaurant cinemas that have been around literally decades and expanded across several states. Alamo even opened in Brooklyn about two years ago.

Pretty far out of touch considering we had one of these back in 1985. It came to town, existed for a while, then we moved on to new things. Like many things in life, it looks like it has come back around. I'd have to ask why did it take Alamo Draft House another 12 years after us to figure it out?

The Alamo sounds awesome- they kicked out a texter and she left a hilarious voice mail that you can hear by clicking a link on the NYT article below.

This is the exact reason I quit going to movies at least 10 years ago- no matter how many warnings they put up on the screen about turning off your cell phones there is ALWAYS one jerk who will ruin it for everybody.

Oh, and I forgot about Colo Univ at Colo Springs just up the hill on Austin Bluffs. I think the location is great!!!! The great movie theatres are way east or north from me. I was just wishing we had a theatre closer. To me and others, I'd say it's a great location.

No joke. I like the people there- unfortunately they are planning to put in the automated kiosks- at least that's in the works, but according to the checker I spoke with, it just ends with people losing their jobs/hours, as while the automated kiosks sound great, it is not any faster than a regular checkout.

That's my "oh crap I forgot something" grocery store. Otherwise it's the KS on Fillmore.
