Kerasotes Showplace Theatres, dba ShowPlace ICON Theatre has leased ±50,700 square feet of space at The Village at San Antonio Center in Mountain View, CA. ShowPlace ICON is a fairly new concept from the Kerasotes family, a Chicago-based theater operator with over 100 years of experience. This would represent just the second ShowPlace ICON theater in the western U.S., with the other location recently announced at San Jose’s Westfield Valley Fair also in Silicon Valley. There are currently two locations officially in operation in Chicago and St. Louis Park, MN.

ShowPlace ICON is anticipated to open at The Village in 2017. Matt Kircher with Cushman & Wakefield’s Retail Services group represented Showplace ICON in both Silicon Valley transactions.
