The 62nd & Western, Chatham 14 and Lawndale 10 all opened on November 26th, 1997 by a partnership of Cineplex Odeon and Inner City Entertainment. The grand opening ad can be found in the photo section

I agree with what Paul above says. The Lawndale has reopened and its status should be changed to “open”.

I’d guess the government largess ended or they fulfilled all the attached terms and obligations.

Lawndale may have bottomed out but there’s no where near the disposable income to sustain a multiplex yet.

There has been enough development on the Near West Side to sustain a 6-10 screen house. Sundance Cinema was looking at a multiplex on Racine couple of years ago.

Yes, Meridian went under because they failed to pay city and county amusement taxes.

I remember that as well. I thought it was a good idea at the time, because people everywhere like the movies. But apparently it didn’t work in practice.

I suppose it could have also been mismanagement, as these are the same people who ran Meridian. My understanding is that Meridian went under because they owed a large amusement tax balance that could not be paid.

I remember all the hoopla when this place opened in 1997 or so. The partners in Inner City Entertainment made all this hoopty-doo about how they were bringing movies back to the inner-city areas.

What went wrong?

The status of this place should be “closed.” I believe that the Quarry aka Hodgkins Cinema also looks like this place.

I don’t really know very much about the subject. But I have heard the Lawndale area is coming up a little bit. There could be a future for this site if my statement holds water.

Architects Johnson & Lee contributed to the standard Cineplex Odeon template here

I’ll bet it was a 10-year lease or something.

For some reason, ICE closed the Lawndale and 62nd & Western Cinemas last week. It’s safe to say that if anyone of these places get picked up, it’ll be the Lawndale. And that’s a strong if.

Yep, the same principals.

Didn’t ICE have a hand in the ill-fated Meridien chain circa 2000-2001? Or Vise Versa.
