Plans for the old Kmart lot in Citrus Heights now include a 50,000-square-foot Studio Movie Grill, along with Big Lots and several other small pads for lease.
An application detailing the new plans was submitted last week to the city, proposing to “remodel and re-purpose an existing vacant building into a movie theatre,” according to the city’s planning division.
