The Norridge Theatre originally opened in 1970 as a twin. On July 25, 1975 a third screen was added. It was increased to four screens on June 10, 1977. Later, six more were added in another building.

The AMC Loews Norridge 10 was closed on July 15, 2012. In October 2016 the six additional screens were being renovated to reopen as 4-6 AMC cinemas. The original twin (later 4 screens) will be converted into retail use. It reopened October 6, 2017.

I drove by the property today. The vintage Norridge sign that faced Harlem Avenue is sadly no more. They are in the demolition process in both buildings. I actually ran into a demo worker and he told me nearly everything has been gutted on the inside and that things were in rough shape inside before the demo work even started. It seems like there’s lots of work still to be done before it reopens.

Uploaded a photo I took today of the front sign stripped to just its frame.

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?

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 AMC website lists this as the AMC Norridge 6.
