The Bangor Mall is turning into an entertainment destination

A rising variety of folks will go by way of the doorways of the Bangor Mall within the coming weeks and months to take pleasure in theater, music, gaming and different leisure — sights which are beginning to rival retail facilities on the mall.

Six years in the past, when the mall had a 98 p.c occupancy charge, that may have appeared like a reasonably loopy concept within the retail-dominated constructing. However right now, with 22 empty storefronts and nationwide retailers closing brick-and-mortar shops, the thought of a theater firm opening or a comic book conference taking place in a shopping center is much from loopy. It’s beginning to turn into the norm.

In the present day on the mall, Some Theatre Firm and Ten Bucks Theatre Firm each function areas. Sunshine’s Health Studio and Wellness Heart gives courses and private coaching. Bangor Comedian & Toy Con, after internet hosting its conference on the mall earlier this month, will now provide year-round programming in two storefront places. Maineiac Manor, open throughout October and sporadically all year long, runs a haunted home within the former Hollister retailer, and native photographer Shane Grant opened a images and video studio.
