AMES, Iowa — Owners of the North Grand Mall in Ames are hoping they’ve found a new cornerstone for the shopping center.

Thursday they announced they’re bringing a new five-theater cineplex to the mall.

Construction is already underway and should be finished later this year.

The mall was purchased by a group of local investors last year after its previous owners defaulted on a loan.
