This is the venue that introduced the on-coming megaplex building boom of the late-1990’s to the San Fernando Valley. Opened in Spring 1996, this newly-erected edifice within the Woodland Hills Promenade of Warner Center brought in droves of patrons ranging from upper class to common folk to a mall which had, up to that point, been largely dismissed as “elitist”.
Along with recently added stores that appealed to a wider range of shopper, this two-story megaplex was a cornerstone of the Westfield Corporation’s expansion and reimaging of The Promenade throughout the 1990’s. Upon first stepping inside the AMC 16, you immediately knew this would be something different. Equipped with stadium-style seating, huge screens and super sound systems, the experience of seeing films like “Twister” upon its initial release blew you away!
This is also the venue that screened an early preview of director George Lucas' re-edited release of “Star Wars” in 1997. Truly a great structure providing enough amenities to help it keep pace in the movie-going industry for years to come.
It was closed on June 1, 2022. It was replaced by the AMC Dine-In Topanga 12 in Canoga Park, which opened on June 2, 2022 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
