HARRISBURG, IL — Another small multiplex acquired from Kerasotes is being closed down by AMC. The last day for the Cinema 4 was November 28. The theater had been operating since 1971.

With the Harrisburg theater closed, moviegoers will now have to drive about a half an hour to catch the latest release on the big screen. Many people were buying tickets Wednesday night, but employees told News 3 the week nights are typically pretty slow. Still— AMC told employees there was a long-term plan.

“In June they said that in five years if our profits have gone up we were going to get a brand new theater,” said Smith, “And if not, they were going to shut us down. And it kind of came as a shock, here it is six months later.”

The story was reported by WSIL.
