A hearing to allow an arcade featuring games such as pinball and skeeball in the has been delayed until July.
Ira Miller, who is pursuing the arcade, was scheduled to make a presentation at the Roland Park Civic League on Thursday. But Phil Spevak, the league's president, said Miller asked to be taken off the agenda after having his Municipal and Zoning Appeals Board hearing delayed.
Earlier this week Miller told Patch that he intended to build an arcade in the Mall across from the , which he owns. He said he hoped the addition of a fourth screen to the theater, a new coffee shop in the mall and the proposed arcade would help turn the long struggling venue into an entertainment destination.
"We think that it would be good for the mall... and bring the right traffic into the mall, and we’re really, really excited about it," Miller said on Monday.
An application for a use and occupancy permit had been filed with the Department of Housing and Community Development, and indicated the arcade would feature between 20 and 25 games.
