Ogden 6 Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This cinema was built in 1976 and originally had 2,000 seats.

Originally operated by the AMC Theaters chain, this cinema, along with the Barrington Square, were the first movie theaters to have six screens in the Chicago suburbs.

From November 4, 1996 the theater was taken over as a second-run movie house by Classic Cinemas. All tickets are now $3.00. The theatre was re-seated in 2004, and all auditoriums have been equipped with digital sound.

When AMC was operating this theater it was a first-run
venue.

When I was a kid in the 70’s & 80’s this was the modern alternative to the declining Cinema in downtown Naperville. I saw Star Wars at least 3 times at the Ogden 6, which at the time was a better experience due to superior sound although the screens were relatively small. Since then, it has become a cheapie second-run theater, slightly run down, priced at one time around $1.50, I believe.

In many ways the AMC Ogden 6 / Barrington 6 were the precursor of todays movie supermegagiga-plexes, AMC Cantera 30 Warrenville and AMC 30 South Barrington. No accident that both generations came from AMC, I am sure, or that each is located with a couple miles of the 6’s.

The website should be www.classiccinemas.com

Has anybody (of the CT faithful) been here recently? I know that Classic Cinemas has put a LOT of money into its theatres. How would they upgrade a 1970s cinema?

Those are photos from 2004. It looks like it’s still fairly AMC simple, but it was a well kept and maintaned complex when we were there.

At one point early in its run as a second run theater, the price was $1.00. Now it’s $3.00. It’s well maintained, and the concession prices are cheaper than AMC or Regal, plus free refills. And, you see 8 movies, you get one free. Gotta love this theater.

The projectors are now all 4K Christie digitals. The image quality is much improved over the battered prints they used to run.

I uploaded the November 5th, 1976 grand opening ad in the photo section for this cinema.
