AMC Deer Valley 17

The AMC Deer Valley 30, designed by Will Bruder Architects, opened December 15, 1998.

In April of 2004 the theatre was one of three AMC theatres bought by Entertainment Properties Trust (EPR), which AMC will operate through long-term leases. EPR’s portfolio includes all of the major theater chains and many of the minor ones.

An IMAX screen was added to the AMC Deer Valley 30 in September of 2005. By early 2017 it had been downsized to 17 screens.

It would depend on which side of the theatre they closed down. Since most of the AMC 30-plexes were essentially two 13-plexes flanking four screens that surround the snack bar, they achieve 17-screens by closing down one entire wing. Most of the 30/24 plexes that AMC has cut down to 17/14 screens, they’ve simply closed the 18-30/15-24 wing making it impossible to tell there were ever more screens unless you knew they were there. I would be interested in seeing one where they close the 1-13 side down and kept everything numbered the same.

They are really not closed off perse, They close off one wing to movies showings but they are rented out for private events, meetings, and other special events. My work has rented out a few times a theatre and it’s been on the side that’s been closed off, you don’t have to deal with the movie goers and feels more private.
