The Oaks Mall
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks, California. Visiting this lovely Southern California mall makes a great addition to any tourist's itinerary. On this page, you'll discover the stores, restaurants and entertainment you'll enjoy when you visit The Oaks Mall in Ventura County.
The Oaks Mall reviewYou'll like The Oaks Mall! The economic downturn has played havoc with many malls, and a number of stores have simply vanished into thin air at many shopping centers in recent months. However, The Oaks keeps ADDING stores every year, as the mall's lovely renovation and expansion attracts shoppers and retailers alike.
But you don't have to be a shopping enthusiast to enjoy The Oaks expansion. That's because the mall's new Muvico Theaters have also opened last year, bringing a state-of-the-art movie-going experience to area residence and visitors! If you never before thought of going to the movies as a "luxury experience," you may change your mind after you try out the Muvico's plush theaters and full-service restaurant/bar, Bogart's!
These brand-new mall additions come on top of other store grand openings in recent months. The "star of the show" among the new additions was Nordstrom's Department Store, which opened amidst a big bustle and hype. But, many other highly-anticipated stores have opened in the past 18 months, as well...and several more will be coming in shortly.
Our readers tend to be tourists visiting the Southern California theme parks and attractions. As such, The Oaks Mall was too far from the main SoCal tourist areas to make the trek out to Ventura County.
We'll be leaving pictures of The Oaks Mall up on this page, so that you can see that this well-kept and stylish mall would be worth your time to visit if your vacation includes passing through the Ventura, Camarillo, or Thousand Oaks areas. You'll find directions to the mall, plus a link to the mall's official website, down near the end of this page.
Movies at The Oaks MallDidn't it seem like "forever" that The Oaks mall was without a movie theater? Thankfully, the waiting time is over! The Oaks' new Muvico Theater opened at the end of February, 2009 and has been enthusiastically popular with area film-lovers ever since!The Oaks' Muvico theater is a state-of-the-art, spacious 14-auditorium movie house, featuring plush chairs, stadium seating, state of the art sound and picture quality, and up-to-date decor! In addition to "regular" auditoriums, you may also choose to see your film in a Premier Auditorium (for ages 21 and up) which includes pre-reserved seating. And not only does it have movies--it has a full service restaurant and bar (Bogart's) as well! (In fact, in the brief time that the Muvico Theater has been open, the restaurant has become nearly as popular as the theater itself. About 1/2 of Bogart's customers visit to enjoy the dining experience on its own---and never even go to see a movie!)
The Movico chain bills itself as "The World's Premier Movie Experience. Besides the amenities mentioned above, Muvico locations offer VIP areas containing bars and restaurants in its theaters; children's play areas; themed auditoriums; and expanded menu at the concession stands. The Oaks location will offer all-digital projection featuring Sony Premier high definition technology.
