    Many of us Tally folks spent good amount of our childhood and teen years here. The holiday season of 2008 was the last time i really remember this place thriving. It started going downhill from there. I remember when it was brought by the current company the title was switched over for $100.

      I remember going to chic fil a across from the Picnic at the Park food court. I would then run over to the cookie place just right of the hibachi restaurant that was at the end of the food court. The sweet ,sweet memories.

      Very true... So many memories were made from going to the AMC theater or the food court with friends. It's sad to see what has become of a once thriving establishment...

    A number of state offices are moving into the interior spaces this fall - including in the area previously occupied by Dillard's. The businesses opening to the parking lot, such as the movie theater, Barnes and Noble, Belk's, and Ross Dress for Less will remain open. Burlington Coat Factory has moved across the street from Governors Square Mall. Governors Square Mall, the sole surviving mall in town, has a lot of empty spaces, and Sears is either closed or in the process of closing.

    they are revamping it again. they also have a school there. its not dead. the structure and design has changed and the old shops aren't there anymore because rent is too high.

    Honestly as somebody who grew up with this mall it’s never going to be popular. A few mouths ago me and some friends went to see a movie and afterwords went to go dick around in the new out door area that they had built, the place was a absolute ghost town. So other than guitar center barns and nobles and even the big concert hall they built the mall is dead in the water.

    I spent a lot of time there from the 80s, 90s, till around 2006. My first Army recruiting office was in the second floor on the left as you was walking towards the Belk. I probably saw over 100 movies at the AMC and spent $5 - $10k there. Tallahassee is a dying city as is. Not just this mall. So glad I left.

    • Tyler L

      Indeed. When I was finally able to drive I spent so much money at AMC. I saw movies like The Prestige , The Dark Knight, and Inception there 4 to 7 times

      It was a sinking ship... The majority of the shops in the video have long since closed from the time this was posted.

    I remember when this was the place to go to in the 90's. It was nice after AMC moved in and when you could catch a movie and have some drinks at the restaurants. It does not take long for the young black youth in town to ruin this. Years later TPD had to camp out on Friday and Saturday nights at the AMC to break up the fights in the parking lot.

    Update: the movie theatre is going to be eventually moving and becoming its own freestanding building and as for the other businesses there is a Burlington coat factory, Belk, Ross and a few other businesses but other than that not much is happening and as for everything else the mall is not doing well.

      Id be interested to know where AMC intends to move to. I know they have a 50 something year lease on the building, and it's one of the highest grossing theaters in that AMC market (which isn't saying much).

    Lots of amazing memories here. I remember coming here as a little kid with my brother and mom. Looks like they have done a little updating since I was there last... there was also a lot of structural damage and obvious water damage around the ceilings last I visited.

    There is some hope that the amc theatre will help the mall but there is a new movie theater being built in the tallahassee area so hope for this mall is dwindling away and any of the good stores even in the other mall are just going away Tallahassee just does not do well with shopping malls at all and probably never will the only semi popular thing for this mall was an ice skating rink for a short amount of time and other than that nothing really so yah that’s an update on the mall for ya

    Nice video here, thanks for posting it. And interesting in the video that you mentioned Guitar Center, since I read an article that they are in trouble as a company. Quote from the article: "Guitar Center, the largest chain of music equipment stores in the U.S., is reportedly facing “imminent bankruptcy." Digital Music News said that financial service firm Standard & Poor’s recently downgraded the business to CCC- status, indicating that a default event is expected in the near future." More info here(says they only recently narrowly paid off a debt service payment, and came close to default): ultimateclassicrock.com/guitar-center-imminent-bankrupcty/

    Gamescape is is one of their bigger renters and even they are moving to their new location. I think AMC is a really nice theater and Dreamland BBQ is nice but, it is just getting sadder as time goes on.

    • Hope Lisson
      Hope Lisson Month ago +1

      DaranDragon I am a teen and the only thing about that mall anyone talks about if they ever do is the movie theater but usually when they talk about the movie theater they are talking about the other one and when they say the mall they are always talking about governor’s square

    I don't really think it's moving forward with the outdoor complex. All of those businesses are struggling, and they have only had two shows in the ampitheater: Smashmouth...and blink 182. The developer of blackwater resources also recently passed away. All of this was his vision. I think you should acknowledge that there is an expanse of space that is unfinished and will remain unused for years ahead. It's not in the center of Tallahassee. The center is the capital, and this is 4 miles away. Cascades park will soon become an urban commercial center, and this place will continue to rot. AMC is all it has. The belk has water damage and the threat of tons of competition.

      on the concert thing, that isnt exactly a venue issue (we now have several good options) Tallahassee has almost always had a shaky rep with promoters for big events being poorly attended. A few big names make it through every year but not in the amounts that our fellow Floridian cities do. I dont remember if it was the one at the mall or the amphitheater but there was whispers of one of the big name promoters (in the area) was in serious talks with Christina Aguilera booking team trying to negotiate a show with her recent tour to no avail.

      Also with when Limpkin Park was taking bookings for their tour that was intended to be "college town oriented" they reached out to Tallahassee showing interest but negotiations failed over an issue with the technical rider...the water bottles required. Yup you read it right.

      With them turning parts of the mall into state offices I'm hoping they are not going to close down AMC 20

      What I heard from my mother who lives there, is that the state will come in to renovate the space and turn them into state run offices. Since the owner died, this is the reason the projects never materialized, however the state is interested in the property and will move in to start business there..

      There was a pizza place called Broadways and a restaurant called Garfield’s with an open area between the booths and the mall.. so many meals there before movies. Sad to see this is its fate but it is not unique. Sign of the economic downturn, rise of ecommerce and wage stagnation.

    Well, the two floor section looks nice. Just a shame as always to see another mall dead.
