After several years without a multiplex theater, Riverside’s Galleria at Tyler mall is once again lighting up the big screen following last weekend’s opening of the AMC Tyler 16. As part of the mall’s “North Village” expansion, the AMC theater replaces the center’s original UA Theater that was cleared to make way for a free-standing Barnes & Noble in 2001.
Also included in the “North Village” outparcel expansion — which is located where Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour once stood — are two restaurants (Yard House and Elephant Bar), a Robbins Bros. store as well as an expanded Hughes Alley parking garage. The 105,000 sq. ft. addition ups the mall’s GLA to 1.2 million sq. ft.
The “North Village” addition comes on the heels of last month’s opening of a 20,000 sq. ft. H&M clothing store inside the mall itself, and completes the center’s recent expansion that began in 2006 with the opening of free-standing P.F. Chang’s and The Cheesecake Factory restaurants.
