The 1980s were not kind to Westview Mall.Stewart's closed. Then Hutzler's. Hamburgers left for nearby Security Square Mall in 1988.Westview, the jewel of the Baltimore suburban shopping scene when Governor Theodore McKeldin cut the ribbon in 1958, had lost its glitter.The 1990s didn't start much better. Within the span of a year, two women were shot in robberies in well-publicized incidents in Westview's parking lot. One of them died. Longtime customers thought twice about going to the mall -- and didn't even think of going at night, mall employees say.But with new management, a $20-million face lift and expansion, improved security and a shift in strategy, the old mall at U.S. 40 and the Beltway is beginning to show signs of a renaissance.

Closed since 2005, the Westview Mall cinemas will reopen tomorrow as the Diamond Cinemas Westview under the ownership of local comic-book distributor Steve Geppi. "I've always had an affinity for movies and movie theaters," says Geppi, 58, owner of Diamond Comic Distributors, the world's largest distributor of English-language comic books. "And I've always thought the best place to locate a comic-book store would be next door to, or practically in, a movie theater. Not that I'm ready to announce that I'm opening a comic-book store at Westview, but you never know."

A LOCAL BUSINESS is a success when it makes money. It turns into an institution when it becomes part of the community's collective identity. Institutions evolve over time. They require a community's affection, which can't be bought with gimmicks.Catonsville's Westview Cinemas, which roll the projectors for the last time tonight, are an institution. People reacted as if they were losing an old friend upon learning the movie house will be razed to make room for a Circuit City. Folks even rue the loss of the theater's 1950s-1960s architecture, which, it is safe to say, no one considered classic when it was built in 1965.
