I think it would be possible to exempt four screens or less since they’re at a competitive disadvantage to the larger screens, or exempt second run, or a combination of the two
Opened December 10, 1999, architect Joseph Antunovich/Antunovich Associates, on two floors, 4,665 seats in auditoriums ranging from 120-339 seats. There are three concession stands, one of which has been entirely abandoned. It is in a neo deco style, with glass block in the hallways and classic movie posters from the 80s and 90s. The largest auditorium was dedicated to Walter Payton. It used to have an additional coffee bar in the lobby which has since been removed entirely. It’s starting to look a little worn, with peeling wallpaper.
There are rumblings. http://chicago.racked.com/archives/2011/06/02/whats-playing-at-pipers-alley-this-weekend-nothing-is-a-new-theater-looking-at-the-space.php
There are 48 D-box seats, and an adult D-box ticket costs $21.50. I guess they tilt, rock, and vibrate according to the action on screen. So now instead of the kid behind you kicking your seat, the theatre itself kicks your seat.
The 16 is already half-demolished.
coolerlakeside, can you repost those?
@jwballer Apr 29, 2010 – That is a different Glen Theater.
Any way to add a “subscribe to comments” link to the pages, to get rid of the “comment resubscribe” comments? Or for that matter, a “flag comment for review” option?
Quantum leap forward, guys. Good work.
It is indeed closing. View link
I don’t know that I’ve seen a good view of the whole building before.
Those were all the first-day ones. They might have done a few others during the week.
The theatre in fact closed yesterday, the final film was a 5:30 show of (ugh) Atlas Shrugged.
200 Randhurst Village Drive likely refers to the unit number within the Randhurst Village center while 324 Theater Way likely refers to its location on the internal network of streets, which I think is what Mount Prospect goes by, which is why 324 Theater Way is the address that has appeared in the press. I’m not sure why else it would be called Theater Way.
