Rivertowne 12 in Oxon Hill to be renovated, reopened

OXON HILL, MD — The former AMC Rivertowne 12, located in the Rivertowne Commons Market Place will be renovated by Spotlight Amusements of Chicago and reopened in 2011. Several Market Place merchants were glad to hear of this development as their sales have suffered since the theater closed in 2006.

“As the landlord, we’re really excited about the theater,” Weinschenk said. “[AMC] helped bring people into the shopping center. When they went out, we didn’t have as many people visiting the center and I think some of the retailers missed having some additional traffic.”

The full story is in the Washington Post.

I remember when this place opened and saw probably a handful of movies there, the last being The Preacher’s Wife back in ‘96 or so. There isn’t anything special about the theaters that I can recall other then the simultaneous opening of the then new Academy 8 a few exits away at the same time. No 70mm capability unlike the Academy 8.

The problem are the teens and riff raff associated with the neighborhood. You wouldn’t want to be there by yourself after dark for sure. However, with the reopening, anticipated updated amenities and superior customer service, perhaps the place may be worth revisiting again.
