I recently took a little urban exploration trip to this theatre and only took so many photos. This was due to many alarms being triggered already, which made me anxious to go further as I fear that I’d get arrested. The main lobby with concessions remained as it was in 2011 when AMC split the theatre into 13 from 30. Also, the “30 Theatres” portion of the sign was removed as of 2019.

As a little irony, Cineplex has been treating their theatre across the highway like trash, as if they’re waiting to develop a new smaller theatre in a new Vaughan development.

AMC, what have you’ve done.

I have an idea: raise your hand if you think that Colossus on the other side caused AMC Interchange to close.

Agreed. The same thing happened in Suburban Quebec City with the StarCité losing out.

You are essentially correct that the colossus killed this theatre. After Ciniplex acquired the colossus the film studios favored Colossus and essentially AMC only got New universal films or move overs from Colossus. So when a Universal film was released they did extremely well for a few weeks then back to nothing. Certainly was not enough to maintain 30 screens and why they reduced down to 13 after just over a decade in business.

As of now, the theatre is currently being demolished. I heard that a TikTok involving the location became viral and caused people to vandalize the place. As such, Vaughan (I guess) decided that now was the perfect time to demolish it for the new condo project.

An urban explorer has published a 40-minute video touring the site as demolition was beginning in October 2021. He has also posted several photos on Instagram — a fascinating look at this building which won't be standing for much longer.

After viewing the video above I can see why the Colossus won the war, this megaplex really has no charm whatsoever. It’s almost as if whomever designed this said to themselves “How can I make this 30-plex look as boring and as plain as possible” I don’t think another 30-plex will ever be built in Canada again, what a waste!
