50% of the mall immediately shut down after Montgomery Ward closed. The current anchors are Burlington, the Hobby store, and the Cinema. All very lame in comparison to a place like MW.

It could be easily be revived if they connected it to the Target. It's already physically attached to the mall!!!

But no one that visits Target uses the mall because you have to exit the store first. And the nearest entrance opens into the "dead" side. The Target location is doing absolutely nothing for the mall and may as well not even be there.

I'll second that sentiment. If it's not going to have an entrance to the attached mall, then why is it attached? I've never understood that. The Wards store that was in that spot before Target had a mall entrance.

They would have done better to have built the Target store as a freestanding building on the outskirts of the mall property, kind of like Dave & Busters.

The Wards building is still there. They didn't knock it down.

The thought of Crossroads Mall being revived to a place as similar to the City Centre in Houston would be wonderful for San Antonio/Balcones Heights area. The mall is in a great location. To make the area a modern mixed use development with trendy shopping and walkable living would be awesome.

The Wonder Theatre in the parking lot of Wonderland was a first class venue. Definitely one of my favorite theatres in town....until they "twinned" it, then I never went back again.

BY "TWINNED IT", DO YOU mean that they split a big screen theater into 2 screens?

I remember the Target at Westlakes Mall had an openning into the mall proper. I was surprised to find out no such opening exists from the Target at Crossroads the first time I went by there.

I saw Star Wars there for the first time. And I remember The Spy Who Loved me was playing in theater 2.
