The Norridge Theatre originally opened in the late-1960’s as a twin. It was increased to four screens by the late-1970’s. Later, six more were added in another building.

The AMC Loews Norridge 10 was closed on July 15, 2012.

I never thought about that issue CSWalczak, but I bet you’re right that AMC put that in their leasing clause, as a condition of sale of this property. As for this theater, it’d be nice if Classic Cinemas were to bring this theater back to life, but who knows. They interestingly did take a chance and brought North Riverside Mall 6 back to life, despite the Kerasotes/AMC 14 theater a few miles east in Cicero.

I never thought that AMC just closed their Loews Norridge 10. If Classic Cinemas will bring this theater back to life that will be awesome. AMC Kerasotes 14 is a few miles east in Cicero.

This Trib article says it was and M&E 12 screen that closed in 2008. I can’t find another Norridge on CT, and I can’t imagine 22 screens at the same address.

I have so many happy memories of visiting this theater in the 70s though the 90s. It’s too bad it’s gone, but upgrading it to modern standards would have cost a fortune. Another part of my youth gone forever.

Plans for a new AMC theater and a Miller’s Ale House via the Tribune.

I’m surprised they’re actually interested in reusing the building.

It’s probably because of the clear spans of former auditoriums and lower costs of redevelopment versus demolition and new construction. Not to mention the time factor to tear down and start from scratch.

I find it interesting in of course a stupid way that 2 blocks south from here you have the Harlem-Irving Mall where every last square inch obviously is at a retail development premium, but here the defunct norridge theatre parcel takes years before somebody gives a hoot about using it. the old RE adage “location-location-location” at its most bizarre
