I wonder if any of the former amc loews houses remaining will become amcs with recliners soon…
Woodfield, South Barrington, Cantera have
Drove by the property today. The half that’s reopening as a theater soon has been completely repainted and looks great! Interestingly, the other building (which I believe is the original building) looks untouched other than the entrance being boarded up. Wonder what will be happening there?
more recliners i bet. Same thing happened with East Hanover earlier this year.
I’m pretty sure Friday Oct. 6 the Norridge #1-2 theatres reopened for business (with Blade Runner 2049). I had gotten an online AMC advertisement about it so Saturday when I was driving in that vicinity I turned in and the 2 auditoriums furthest west (away from Harlem) in the lot certainly looked ready for customers right now
Now Open……Recliners are the last great hope to improve box office returns which are declining. This property was for sale for quite some time. AMC must have owned it all this time. AMC bought LOEWS which bought M&R who built the theaters in the first place. The “M” was for MARKS whose family had the big beautiful theater palaces in the 1920’s in Chicago. Marbro, Granada, Broadway Strand to name a few.
The other half of the building (formerly theaters 1-4)is sadly being demolished as I type. Too bad, I was hoping AMC would rehab the rest of the original theater. I have very fond memories of seeing Tim Burton’s Batman in this building. The screening room was huge and packed and the seats rocked and were very comfortable.
No longer live in Chicago, so when I heard this was going to be torn down I was sad. I believe they wanted to build a Costco on the property at first, but when I heard AMC was going to renovate the second building I was excited. It’s sad the original building is gone, but finally, something survives from when I left. No more McClurg Court, no more Esquire, no more Golf Mill, but their are still movie theaters in Norridge at the same spot.
The original is still there, it’s the additions being removed.
what a shame….
