The curfew was put in place to stop teenage loitering, management said. It doesn't apply to Texas Roadhouse or the Regal Cinema Movie Theater, and exceptions may be made from time to time for special circumstances.
If you remember, Oklahoma City instituted a Bricktown curfew last year, and city officials are said to be quite happy with the result. But that curfew is 11pm, a much more understandable hour than Crossroads' new policy. Management at the south OKC shopping mall say the time will be adjusted if needed. Though the merchants in the mall are behind the change, I'm guessing once sales drop even slightly, that curfew time will be adjusted upwards a bit.
