Atlanta’s Magic Johnson Theater closing
ATLANTA, GA — The 12-screen Magic Johnson Theater, operated by AMC, is closing before the end of the month. Located in the Greenbrier Mall, the theater opened in 1996. Mall owners are hoping another operator will come forward, but are also looking at other proposals for the use of the space.
The Greenbriar theater changed hands several times. AMC acquired it after merging with Loews Theatres in 2006.
AMC spokesman Andy DiOrio said the company has closed a handful of theaters nationwide this year as it seeks to upgrade or close aging theaters.
“While we understand and appreciate that community’s affinity with that theater, we also have two others in that vicinity, AMC Parkway Pointe 15 and AMC Southlake Pavilion 24,” he said.
