Although this theatre is briefly mentioned on the page for the former 1940’s-era Arlington Theatre (demolished in 1986), which was at 115 N. Evergreen Road, the present theatre bears no relation to the previous one.
The present day Arlington Theaters was built in 1999, with 1,540 seats. It was part of an effort to revitalize the downtown Arlington Heights area with new condos, restuarants, stores, and a live theatre, the Metropolis Performing Arts Center. The developer was Joseph Freed and Associates.
The Arlington Theaters featured the Cinema Cafe, where patrons could have a sit-down snack, free internet access, children’s birthday party packages, group admission packages, and dinner-and-a-movie packages which are offered Monday and Thursday in conjunction with local restaurants.
It was closed on July 8, 2012. It reopened on July 5, 2013 as the Star Cinema Grill, with a reduced seating capacity of 700. In 2016 it was taken over by Paragon Theaters.
