In a shocking turn of events, Westfield San Francisco Center, affectionately known as the Westfield mall, has faced another punch to the gut as its movie theaters say a quiet goodbye. An iconic venue for many a San Francisco evening, it has now become a ghost town of economic repercussions and mismanaged municipal policies. Despite the common narrative of half-filled malls being a result of the pandemic or the ‘retail apocalypse,’ the Westfield mall is seemingly more a victim of its locale – dangerously close to the infamous Tenderloin neighborhood.
If you ever strolled the vicinity of Tenderloin, you’re likely to have dodged not just metaphorical, but literal bullets, human feces, open-air crime, and unsettling sights of human trafficking. The immediate fallout, you ask? Well, imagine 45% of businesses once bustling with life inside the Westfield mall now shuttered, with the mall itself being handed back to the lender. The cinema complex, an enduring part of many San Franciscans’ memories, has sent out an e-mail of surrender, announcing its closure. “Local business conditions” they said, an eloquent veil for the chaos they are leaving behind. All this paints a stark picture of San Francisco, not just as a city grappling with an opioid crisis, but also as a city where business has become untenable due to a massive failure in managing societal issues.
