News About This Theater
- Apr 29, 2011 — AMC opens new Randhurst Cinema 12; older theater to close
The Randhurst Theater opened at the mall of the same name in 1965, originally a single screen theater. In the early-1980’s, it was twinned, and a few years later, two more screens were added. The theater was operated by General Cinema. The theater closed in the mid-1990’s.
AMC built a new, sixteen screen megaplex at the mall in 1996, which replaced the old fourplex.
The Randhurst 16 Theaters was closed April 21, 2011, and was demolished in the summer of 2011.

Take advantage of the new photo abilities and take some photos of it half demolished.
This is wrong. It opened in 1996. November 22nd 1996 to be exact. I know as I worked there the first day.
November 22nd, 1996 Grand opening ad (along with the Northbrook Court 14) posted here.
Wow…so hard to believe. 15 years is a very short lifespan for a movie theater. This theater replaced the old Randhurst twin. It is very similar to the AMC at Northbrook Court that opened at the same time. Oh well. I’m glad to see, at least, that AMC opened a new theater there.
I saw movies here, when I was living in Des Plaines, Illinois.
Movies I saw here was Lilo and Stitch, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl, Pokemon: The Movie, Pokémon 3: The Movie, Piglet’s BIG Movie, and Pooh’s Heffalump Movie.
Original 1965 opening ad is posted. Original architect was Maurice Sornik.
The movies I also watched here was Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie, Treasure Planet in 2002, Brother Bear in 2003, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: The Pyramid of Light there in 2004.
Also Pokémon 4Ever here as well.
