What Should Replace the Cinedome?

Updated with reader suggestions: Should the domed 8-screen cinema be torn down or repurposed? Share your visions for downtown Napa's latest vacancy.

Napa's Cinedome 8 showed its last movie Nov. 8; the new Century multiplex opens to the public tonight.

What should happen to the domed 8-screen cinema building and its property? Tell us in the comments. 

The privately-owned property is slated for development of some kind under the City of Napa's recently-approved Downtown Specific Plan. But, said city council member Peter Mott Wednesday, the owners have not yet decided what its future might be.

So let's give them some suggestions! Almost 40 people have commented on our Facebook page — here are some of their ideas:

  • Roller rink
  • Ice rink
  • Skateboard park
  • Science center with a planetarium and a viticultural focus
  • Arcade
  • Drive-in movie theater
  • Sports bar with kids' game room and "killer food"
  • Year-round farmers market
  • Recreation center for kids with bounce houses and batting cages

Now it's your turn: Share your visions for this vacancy in our comments below, and click "Keep me posted" for automatic updates when we publish more news about this property.

It's going to a parking lot. That's what the register reported.

I am sure whatever goes in that space won't be for the locals. I loved Dan's suggestion of the Arts Center or something that builds our community instead of pushing us out. Heather WAtson

Since it has flooded more than once, the walls probably have mold in them so I say tear it down and see what happens in the next flood. Where the water finds it's way - it is in the flood way and don't just use it because it is an empty spot.
