The mall was enlarged between May 1985 and October 1986. A 328,000 square foot Southeast Wing added Dillards, Mervyn's and over fifty inline stores. In 1987, ALEXANDRIA MALL houses approximately 873,000 leasable square feet. Its in-mall twin cinema has been replaced by the new Alexandria 6 megaplex. This freestanding venue is situated on a pad southeast of the mall proper.
