JHamm7 is right. This theater never had 16 screens despite being called Movies 16.

According to what a manager told me many, many years ago, expansion from 12 to 16 screens was well underway at the theater when someone noticed that the expansion plans failed to include restrooms in the new area. Because construction work was so far along by this point, it was cheaper for them to convert what would have been one of the new screens into the missing restrooms.

Since the Movies 16 signage had already been ordered, thus was born the Movies 16 theater that actually only has 15 screens.

I know you asked your question a few months ago, and may have already gotten an answer elsewhere, but I thought I would reply anyway.

The Parks Mall at Arlington is not starting to die out. When I walked through it two weeks ago, there were only three truly empty spaces. These spaces formerly contained iSmile Dental, Best Buy Mobile, and Twins. In addition, several stores have recently remodeled and/or moved into a bigger space, including Zales Jewelers, Bath & Body Works / The White Barn Candle Co., and Cotton On.

While the mall will soon have two more vacant spaces when the bankrupt Payless and Gymboree stores close down, I don’t think this mall has anything to worry about.
