The AMC Randhurst 12 held a soft opening on April 20, 2011, one day before the closure of the AMC Randhurst 16. The first show was “The Godfather”, followed by a slate of other favorite movies. The grand opening is scheduled for April 29, 2011. It is the centerpiece of the redeveloped Randhurst Village. The new complex is the first AMC location to achieve LEED certification.

All projection is 4k digital, and several screens are 3D and simulcast capable. Screens are wall-to-wall. One screen is an AMC ETX. The Hollywood Deco-style lobby features a ticket counter instead of box offices, a cafeteria-style concession stand called "The Marketplace" featuring ice cream, Coca-Cola Freestyle soda fountains, and other unusual offerings, and a MacGuffins bar. It also features a polished concrete floor in contrast to the typical carpet.

Its auditoria feature a variety of seating arrangements, with all red leather stadium seats. The majority of seats are high-back rockers with flip-up arms and stationary seats. The back row of each auditorium has home theatre-style seats also with flip-up arms and ample legroom, and along one side of the auditorium are curving, lounge style ‘box seats’ arranged around a table. The discomfort of front-row seats is balanced by home style electric reclining chairs.

PLEASE CHANGE ADDRESS TO:

200 RANDHURST VILLAGE DRIVE

This is the address that AMC lists on its Website, not 324 Theater Way. Google Map will not be able to find the new address, it did find 170 locations for the old address, none of them correct. Google may not have the info on this “new” construction area yet? It is in the area of Elmhurst Road and Rand Road, if you want to Google that till the address works.

PHONE:

MOVIE TIME 888.AMC.4FUN
GUEST SERVICES 847.590.1766

Randhurst 12 is 48,000 square feet and cinemas range from 223- 85 seats.

EXT = Enhanced Theatre Experience, “20% larger larger floor-to-ceiling screen, breathtaking sound and digital projection that is higher resolution than HD.”

LEED = LEADERSHIP in ENERGY and ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN, which is a certification system for buildings with energy savings, water efficency, CO2 emissions reduction, and improved indoor enviornmental quality. That last one would be GREAT for a cinema! LEED Buildings on average are 25-30% more energy efficient, have better ventilation, temperature control, lighting control, and reduced indoor air pollution.

More info and more photos always welcome.

200 Randhurst Village Drive likely refers to the unit number within the Randhurst Village center while 324 Theater Way likely refers to its location on the internal network of streets, which I think is what Mount Prospect goes by, which is why 324 Theater Way is the address that has appeared in the press. I’m not sure why else it would be called Theater Way.
