AMC has now announced that the site will be converted to recliner seating in the Spring, but not a full Fork & Screen. One wonders if this will allow the theater to be classified as a “luxury theater,” thereby allowing AMC to book the same films that the new ArcLight La Jolla does. (ArcLight is, as expected, getting all the profitable stuff, leaving AMC the leftovers.)

When I asked AMC via Twitter if the addition of recliners would entail installing stadium risers, they responded that there would be “some.” There will have to be some level of remodel, I’m sure, because as it is, the recliners wouldn’t even fit through the doors of 8 of the auditoriums.

Rumored to be undergoing a remodel at yet-to-be-determined date, according to the Cinema Society, which has changed venues as a result. Fork and Screen, maybe? Eliminating all or part of the Theater 10-12 corridor for a kitchen would work, although the back of the concession stand is pretty big already. They applied for a liquor license several months back.

I helped open this Theatre. It has 12 Strong Projectors with matching Strong platters. Opened as AMC’s first all SDDS houses. Biggest screens are 4, 5, 9, and 11 with 9 being the widest screen. 12 Taurus screens. In La Jolla Village Square the theatre opened with a Tony Curtis tribute with 12 of Tony’s movies all starting with a personal introduction from Mr. Curtis himself. The last non stadium seating theatre AMC built. One of my Favorite theatres!
