Theater to Help Bring New Shops to Santa Maria Town Center

SANTA MARIA, Calif. -

Right now, only 60 percent of Santa Maria Town Center Mall is filled with stores.  The mall hopes this new theater to help bring tenant occupancy to 90 percent by the beginning of next year.

This theater will seat 2,800 people and have 14 screens--one is an RPX, or a Regal Premiere Experience screen.

This screen only exists in seven California theaters.  

They're hoping this will attract movie-goers from as far as Paso Robles and Santa Ynez just in time for the holiday shopping season.

The mall says they're in talks with ten national retailers; they can't say which ones yet, but they say the theater is huge in helping.

They believe this theater will help Santa Maria Town Center be what it once was.

"Just full of life again,” said Amber Lease with the mall, “the buzz, bags, shopping, the overall experience right now that i think people look elsewhere to get.  There's no reason we can't be that again."

The multimillion-dollar theater began construction about a year ago.  Its now finishing final touches and has a final opening date of November 22nd with a major headliner.

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
