Malco, now preferring free-standing cinemas, is leaving Wolfchase after 2017

Rather than renew the lease to its cinema inside the Wolfchase Galleria mall when it ends in 2017, Malco has decided to replace it by building a new cinema on U.S. 64, west of Houston Levee Road.

Malco spokeswoman Karen Scott said it’s a result of the Memphis-based theatre chain preferring to build free-standing facilities moving forward, rather than as it’s done at Wolfchase operate inside someone else’s facility.

“The Highway 64 corridor is the right place for our future theatre, and the property has been in the family for decades, waiting for the right time,” she said.

Malco’s Wolfchase cinema had been a major tenant of the mall for years but has for a while now been showing more older movies, as opposed to new releases that fill the screens at its other properties.
