Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code. This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.


In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Montclair Place Mall overviewPlanning Commission approved CIM Group’s Precise Plan of Design and Conditional Use Permit applications for the construction of a 144,354 sq. ft. new building to accommodate a 12-screen theater, an 18-lane bowling alley, and 3 new restaurants at Montclair Place.  The uniquely designed building will be constructed following the demolition of the vacant Broadway building, given that it will be built in its general footprint.  The Planning Commission also approved remodel plans for the JCPenney building and a remodel of the exterior façade of the former food court located on the north side of the mall.

Montclair Place TheaterThe theater is expected to include at least one IMAX Theater and will also include a full bar with a lounge.  The bowling alley will include a private area with four bowling lanes, a full bar, lounge, and food service available for the hosting of private parties.  The full-service, sit-down restaurants will be located on the lower floor of the new building and will all have outdoor patio dining and full bar service. The return of a movie theater to the mall area has been an important goal for the City and an instrumental use for revitalizing the mall.  With a growing residential base within the immediate area, recreational uses such as a theater and bowling alley are popular and highly desired activities.

The architectural style of the new building will incorporate design elements and materials utilized in the current exterior remodel to the mall’s north façade and pedestrian bridges.  The new theater building design is unique in style, and with the use of the proposed materials, will create a distinctive and attractive building that will set the stage for the rebranding of Montclair Place.
