WARRENVILLE, IL — The Cantera 30’s owner is putting the theater, built in 1998, on the market, asking $37 million. AMC’s current lease does not expire until 2015 and the chain holds renewal options.
AMC Cantera 30, one of the region’s largest and top-grossing movie theaters, opened in 1998. The theater, at 28250 Diehl Road just off Interstate 88, is owned by Kansas City, Mo.-based Entertainment Properties Trust and an offshore investor and is leased to the operator, American Multi-Cinema Inc. (AMC)
The asking price equates to a 12% capitalization rate on current rent, says Ken Szady, a Cushman executive director who is handling the marketing the property along with colleague Jim Carpenter.
The biggest question mark for investors will be what happens in five years when AMC’s lease is scheduled to expire.
There are additional details in Chicago Business.

ST. JOSEPH, MO — Built in 1951, the Trail Theatre is currently for sale. Its former manager hopes it might come back to life as a movie house, but redevelopment for retail may well be its future.
If it were to open as a movie theater again, Mr. Heye suggested the Trail follow other older cinemas and become a place for high-buzz independent movies from directors such as Woody Allen. But after mentioning it, he questions if that would be a profitable venture.
“I don’t know if the theater going public in St. Joe is the kind that’s going to sufficiently support an art theater,” he said.
Local collector and Trail Theater patron Greg Filardo said for it to function as money-making business again, it will take rethinking on both the owner and St. Joseph citizens' parts.
The full story is in the St. Joseph News.
If you are interested in original carbon rod 35mm projectors & sound equipment (~1940s) or a classic fountain drink dispenser (~1960s), please contact the Ituna Theatre @ (306) 550-4023. Serious inquiries only please.

CLAPTON, LONDON, ENGLAND — The former Kenning Hall Cinema in the East End of London (formerly the Clapton Cinematograph Theatre) is currently up for sale. This is one of London’s earliest purpose built picture palaces, dating from 1910, and containing original features from the Edwardian era. It is also said to be the cinema which influenced the youthful Harold Pinter to become a dramatist and screenwriter.
Anyone interested in acquiring this historic cinema and equipping it for the twenty first century as a tribute to the great playwright should contact Julia Lafferty at

I am in the process of renovating a theater and we have almost 1000 seats we have deinstalled that we have sitting in an empty auditorium. We are willing to give away for FREE if you take ALL OF THE SEATS that are to go. They are stored in an empty auditorium, about 200 of them are still installed in that house as they are being used as dividers for the other seats. The seats have been removed in majority 6 seat wide sections, and you may take them further apart if you wish but they’ve gotta go.
The seats are burgundy tweed with a tan metal seat bottom, tan plastic backing and tan metal standard. They are ¾ back and have wooden armresests, they do not have cupholders.
