Before AMC & Kerasotes: What’s left of M&R, Plitt, & C-O in Chicagoland?
I’ve been on CT for a few years now, and I need a little help here. As most Chicago CT'ers know, AMC and Kerasotes have become the dominant players in Chicagoland. I’d like to know what has become of their antecedants, especially those of AMC. I’d like to know which theatres of Cineplex-Odeon, M&R, & Plitt still function as movie houses (or are able to). Here’s what I came up with:
M&R: Lansing (f.k.a. River Run), Norridge, Portage, & Webster Place.
Plitt: LaGrange, Gateway.
Cineplex-Odeon: 600 North Michigan, Quarry, North Riverside, Bloomingdale Court, Rivertree Court, Chicago Ridge, Gardens at Old Orchard.
Essaness: Davis, Lake. (Golf-Glen is reportedly under renovation to re-open as Phoenix/Ad-labs).
Also, does anyone know if the Mesbur & Smith “free-standing” Cineplex-Odeons (such as the now-closed Lincoln Village 1-6, Bircktown, and Burnham Plaza) remain open as cinemas? North Riverside is now run by Classic Cinemas and is in the mall. Chicago Ridge was not originally built for C-O and the Quarry, Gardens of O.O. and the 600 North were of later designs.
