A Dick’s Sporting Goods will replace the Carmike Cinema theater near Valley View Mall.
Valley Square 6, Carmike Cinema’s theater on Highway 16 in La Crosse, closed on December 15 after the company was unable to come to a long-term agreement with Valley View Mall.
"The theater is going to be coming down. What will stay is Chuck E Cheese and Play it again Sports," said City of La Crosse Senior Planner Tim Acklin.
Construction could start in about a month on the 45,000 square foot space. The demolition will also include the retail space next door where Gaming Generations recently moved from. Acklin said Dick’s Sporting Goods could be open by next spring.
