AMC Theatres at Downtown Disney

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened January 12, 2001. The AMC Theaters are right in the middle of Downtown Disney. The theater auditoriums are designed with great care in a modern day retro look reminiscent of the golden age of theaters. 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 theaters are nicely designed and have loveseat-style stadium seating, THX Surround Sound and many other state-of-the-art amenities.

The world premiere of the Prometheus trailer (which was streamed on amc’s website and through their facebook page) took place tonight at this theater, along with a lenghty q&a featuring Ridley Scott and Damon Lindeloff wearing their 3d specs. Amazing trailer!!!

AMC Downtown Disney’s days are numbered. Disney has announced they are going to tear down the theatre and other buildings to make room for a new hotel.

I really hope Disney will at least save this theatre or have it in the new 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.

rayman29 maybe Disney will relocate the theatre outside of Downtown Disney

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)
