AMC Burbank Town Center 6

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The AMC Burbank Town Center 6 located at the western edge of the AMC Burbank Town Center shopping mall complex (adjacent to a parking garage, rather than the mall itself) in Burbank, California. It’s name is confusing in that it is so similar to the nearby AMC Burbank Town Center 8 (which is actually located within the mall). The mall opened in November 1991 and the AMC Burbank Town Center 6 was built about 1995.

To add to the confusion, AMC has ANOTHER theatre complex (AMC Burbank 16) a few more blocks to the east/southeast at 125 E. Palm Avenue.

Just spent my entire Saturday here on 2/27 for the Part 1 of AMC’s Best Picture Showcase. Decor/layout is mid-90’s era AMC when they switched to those massive stadium seating love seats. Seats aren’t as cushiony due to wear and tear, but I made it through 5 movies in a row without discomfort.

They need to check their projection/sound equipment here. Digital sound kept dropping in and out from the 3rd film through the rest of the event.

They DO have a digital projection/3D house in here. “Avatar” looked and sounded great.

Actually, I sometimes frequent these theatres because they do have comfy seats and they were never really crowded.

I’m addicted to $6 senior Tuesday so on the evening of 4/20 I took in the movie “La Mission”. I was surprised by the unusually large attendance-then the lights went up and the movie’s star, Benjamin Bratt, strode to the front of the theater. He was very generous with his time and spent about a half hour in the lobby letting the ladies swarm him and have pictures taken with him.

the 6-plex was part of a burbank amc expansion in ‘95. the burbank mall theatre expanded from 4 screens to 8, and the 6 was built from scratch. it was originally called the 'media north 6’ to differentiate it from the nearby mall’s ‘media center 8’. the 6 opened in november 1995, and was one of the earlier stadium builds for the company. the nearby 8- and 14- screen buildings were entirely slope-floor buildings, with the exception of two amphitheaters at the 14. as the only stadium location in burbank, it was also one of the amc’s busiest theatres anywhere on a per-seat basis. the ability of the 6 to consistently sell out entire rounds of shows helped to nail the coffin in the old 14-plex, which was replaced by a stadium 16-plex in the summer of 2003. i managed here on and off for five years between 1997 and 2006, it’s still a sentimental favorite.

This is one of my favorite places to see movies. Perfect sight lines, comfortable seating and very good projection. They have excellent curved screens too and the auditoriums are not too small either. I love this movie complex!

The way I understand it, this theatre began as the “AMC Burbank Media Center North 6”. The name was changed around 2004, with the renovation and expansion of the “Burbank Media Center” shopping center (mall), which became the “Town Center” shopping center. By whatever name, it’s a great place to see movies – one of my favorites!
