There were once hundreds of theaters just like the AMC Mountain Farms 4 scattered across Americashoebox auditoriums with bland designs and minimal aesthetics.
The AMC 4 was located inside what area residents later deemed The Dead Mall, so named because when a newer shopping mall was built next door, business evaporated and many stores closed.
However, the AMC hung on long enough to see the dead mall filled with a Walmart and other stores. AMC operated another 6-plex down the street in the newer mall, which was torn down in 1999 to make way for a planned megaplex.
Unfortunately, the theater project was stalled when the exhibition market tanked and for awhile, this venerable, old multiplex was the only game in Hadley. Finally, Cinemark stepped in and built a new megaplex at the newer mall in 2000.
The AMC Mountain Farms 4 finally shut its doors in 2001 after two decades of delighting area audiences. Before AMC purchased the vanished GCC circuit, this was the last AMC theater in all of New England. When it finally came down, memories of $2.50 matinees and its hallowed orange walls went with it.
