Huge Cineplex to Anchor Fremont's "Date Night" District

Seeing Captain America and other heroes of the silver screen will be key to Fremont's new downtown district, city leaders hope.

Fremont city officials are banking on Century Theaters to give the East Bay suburban burg a concentrated and viable downtown, with a 16-screen theater complex to be the anchor of an "entertainment complex" perfect for "date nights" called Pacific Commons, according to the Oakland Tribune.

Century Theaters has leased a 60,000-square-foot property at the entertainment complex, according to the newspaper. City leaders praised the project. "We really need a place for date night in Fremont," said Lori Taylor, the city's economic development director.

Construction is under way for the new theater complex, though no open date was announced, according to the newspaper.

The 16-screen theater will be part of a 320,000-square-foot entertainment and retail project that will also feature a 140,000-square-foot Target store as a co-anchor and 120,000-square-feet of smaller spaces, such as "boutique" stores, according to city leaders.
