The AMC Town & Country 6 was located in the Town & Country Shopping Center. The theater opened in 1976 and remained vibrant until 1998 when AMC opened the Esplanade 14 one mile away. The AMC Town & Country then became an art house theater but closed two years later.

LA Fitness (a gym) took over building and gutted the cinema.

The Mapquest location is wrong. Not sure how to fix that. I have no idea of the number of screens, any help is appreciated.

I don’t know about the theater’s entire lifespan, but during the late-1970s and early-1980s, the AMC Town & Country had six screens. See the following article for a reference to it having six screens in 1981. (Scroll down to the “Arizona” section.)

Thanks for the link. Looks like 6 screens it is. Anyone know how to change the map and number of screens?

I was a assistant manager during high school there. This was the first multiplex theater in Arizona featuring 6 theaters by AMC and the was opened in 1971 and closed in 2000. In 1998 AMC opened the Esplanade 14 just 1 mile down the road and AMC made this there Independent arts theaters but years of service and outdated design took this theater. LA Fitness tore the insides out and make a fitness center… but you can still see the old box office window still there.

“This was the first multiplex theater in Arizona featuring 6 theaters by AMC and the was opened in 1971”

Wrong on both claims. The AMC Town & Country 6 actually opened in 1976. It was not the first multiplex in Arizona.

What was the name of the owners before AMC? It was something else in the 70s. My first movie at this theater was “Jaws 2” in 1978…scared the hell out of this seven year old.
