AMC Downtown Disney 12

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened January 12, 2001. The AMC Theatres are right in the middle of Downtown Disney. The theatre auditoriums are designed with great care in a modern day retro look reminiscent of the golden age of theatres. The entry way is full of bright neon and meticulous ironwork. The front lobby is sort of rounded, and where the ticket area is located. In addition to live ticket takers, they also have automated ticket purchasing windows, where you can use a credit card if you so choose.

From the ticketing area, you then pass through glass doors into the concession area. The theatres are nicely designed and have loveseat-style stadium seating, THX Surround Sound and many other state-of-the-art amenities. It was closed June 17, 2018 and will be demolished to build a hotel.

That will not happen. The new hotel will be exactly where the theatre is, and their isn’t enough room in the new building. The first floor will contain other shops and restaurants that will be torn down, but those take up much less room than a movie theatre does.

I’m sure AMC or someone else where open a new theatre somewhere in Anaheim. Without the AMC Downtown Disney, Anaheim will be one of the the most populated cities in the country not to have a single movie theatre. It just doesn’t make sense to keep one on a property that contains two of the most popular theme parks in the world, and limited room for hotels, shops, restaurants, and parking. Those people need a place to sleep or a place to eat. There’s only two Disney theme park resorts in the United States, but thousands of places to see a movie.

This leaves the amc theater in Disney springs as the only theater located near a disney theme park in the us if the plan goes through.

rayman29 – Anaheim still has a couple theaters inside the city (Edwards Festival 14, Cinema City 12). Plus a few right on the city limits (Century Orange Stadium for example).

Well, neither of those theatres in Anaheim are listed on here, and I overlooked theatres in neighboring towns. I guess the only loser of this theatre closing is AMC and people paying for Stubs membership, and people seeing Disney preview showings. (For example Coco had advanced screenings for annual pass holders)

AMC will be reopening the former Movie Experience/Ultra Star Garden Walk theatre (the side which wasn’t converted in to the House of Blues). So, the area will have a movie theatre after Downtown Disney closes.
