South Hills Village is confirmed to get a Dick's Sporting Goods and Target into their old Boscov's space. Dick's was never rumored to move into space at Monroeville Mall. Wal-Mart was rumored for a while to take some space at Monroeville Mall, but so far, that's just a rumor.

Maybe I'm being critical, but 12-screen is almost kind of small by today's standards. The new Cinemark in Robinson only has 16 screens and they sell out showtimes like crazy. The Destinta in neighboring North Versailles has 22 screens--that's a nice theater.

I am kind of interested as to how you convert an existing building into a modern movie theater. I think that will be quite the interesting process. Will the existing JCPenney building at Monroeville Mall become one level to allow for the large screens and stadium seating? I'm rather interested of how this will all take place.

It also sounds as if part of the former Boscov's building will still be available for use. If the Wal-Mart rumors have any truth to them, Wal-Mart or any other retailer could possibly occupy that space.

It's all very interesting--and at least it's some good news for Monroeville Mall. Now if we can only do something of worth with Century III...

They better be selective about what movies they offer, otherwise that theater will bring loads of trouble to that mall.

Wow it took two pages for one of these predictable comments.

Swapping out some department store space for movies makes ample sense.

Incidentally, Monroeville as a whole appears to be going through some sort of reinvestment/revitalization process, which I find very interesting.

The Trib states that JCP will take the top 2 floors of Boscov's while the bottom floor still remains vacant at this time...

You forgot your "sarcasm" quotes.

PGH needs more hockey rinks. So many guys at my workplace play in adult leagues and are constantly complaining about the late ice times and the cost.

My boss's son is currently being recruited by several colleges and he just finished his sophomore season as a goaltender.

My boss spends a fortune on both of his kids for equipment, hotel stays, travel to tournies, ice time, league fees, etc.



Glad to see some bounce back at Monroeville Mall. I just hope they include security in their cost model.

There's already a Dicks in the mall complex (behind it) and the Monroeville
Target has it's own complex which is usually disgustingly crowded. The Harmar or Robinson Targets are usually easier to manage.

And regarding hockey... I've read lots of articles about hockey's declining viewership. I assume those numbers apply to Pittsburgh... perhaps I'm wrong? Links anyone?

It would be good to see Monroeville Mall make a come back, I have so many fond memories of that place form the 80"s.

With a number of declining East End areas set to redevelop, Monroeville Mall may get come back to what it was in it's glory days.

By the way, if they don't have an annual zombie film festival, they are brainless.
