Pecanland Mall movie theater is closing. Memory lane thread.

LINK

I grew up in West Monroe and have many fond memories of wandering Pecanland Mall on a Saturday. I’d hit the arcade, the comic book kiosk, and Sbarro for about ten bucks.

I’m pretty sure the last movie I saw there before moving to Huntsville was Coming to America.

When my brother got kicked out of LSU for getting in a fistfight with a tow truck operator, my parents sent my sister (no pics) and me to the movies while they had a come to Jesus meeting with him. We went to Pecanland Mall and watched Michael Keaton as Batman.

Lots of memories of that movie theater & that mall growing up near there. Those were the days. I hear it resembles Mogadishu now.

I saw many good movies there, including Keaton’s Batman, when I was 7.

Had some great times in that theatre. RIP.

I remember watching “The Program” with James Caan there. I had just started driving. Loved checking out the talent from the other northla towns.

I’m actually amazed at how how well it has held up compared to a lot of other malls. It’s probably been 6-8 months since I was in, but there weren’t a lot a vacant spots there. I think maybe jc penney was still vacant.

That sounds like an amazing opening line for a narrated movie

I have many many memories there. The last movie I saw there was possibly Titanic. Remember getting a tub of popcorn to go, my mom loved it. She died about 9 years ago. Popcorn may have had something to do with it.

The Nelsons and Jay Tom’s had Card Co.
grab me a pair of Structure jeans.
Appetizers was so legit!
Go down and get yelled at by the Camo Shop Owner. A hole.
I remember the day it opened.

Went to NLU and would occasionally go to Pecanland. I think it held up better than most malls until lately. Definitely better than the Ellick mall.

Last time I saw the PLM (almost 2 years ago) that place was still there. I was shocked.

This is a real name? Is "Pecanland" the reason for the closing?
