Maya Cinemas North America
Located on the campus of Fresno State and part of the university’s long-term development plan, Campus Pointe will bring much-needed retail, entertainment, dining services, and jobs to students and residents of underserved neighborhoods surrounding the school.
To create a "college town feel," Campus Pointe provides preferential consideration and below-market leases to local businesses, forgoing large national chain-type companies and franchises.
