Theatres at Mall of America

Located in the Bloomington district of Minneapolis on Level 4 of Mall of America. Built by General Cinema and opened August 14, 1992, the Mall of America Cinemas had 14-screens and a seating capacity of 3,776 with the largest screen seating 342 and the smallest seating 148. It later became part of the AMC Theatres chain.

It was then operated as an independent theatre by the Mall of America, and was closed December 30, 2016. After alterations it reopened May 4, 2018 with a food hall as part of the cinemgoing experience. In 2019 one of the screens was closed. In September 2020 CMX Cinemas were no longer featuring the Market Cinema Experience on their website.

Recently MOA has made an effort to bring some cooler brands into refurbished space and expansion plans, I’d love to see the Alamo Drafthouse expand into The Twin Cities marketplace. I’d love to see them take over the existing theater space or open up a theater in the new expansion space.

As of today, this theater is no more. I’m sure another theater will open in in one of the mall’s expansions, but the original theater that was once one of the most successful in the country is gone forever. It will be interesting to see what will replace it.

The movie “Jingle All The Way” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger was set in Minnesota’s Twin Cities metro area and filmed there at various locations between April 15 and May 10, 1996, including Bloomington’s Mall of America.

Schwarzenegger and co-star Sinbad – plus several of the film’s other stars – returned to attend the film’s world premiere at the Mall of America on Saturday November 16, 1996. By some accounts, the stars were met by a crowd of 20,000 that turned out to see them, the screening, and the mall’s annual Holiday Parade. The movie’s nationwide release was nearly a week later (Friday November 22, 1996).

Despite what Mall of America announced last year, this theater is not closed permanently, it’s being converted to a dine in cinema.

According to CMX website, it looks like they have only 13 screens now.

The theatre has 13 screens, CMX removed a screen. I saw a picture on yelp that screens said 8 to 13.

I worked here as a cashier when it first opened as General Cinema Mall of America 14. Eventually I moved into management and worked as a manager at several General Cinema locations throughout the 90s. I sold the first ticket to this theater! (It was for “Stay Tuned”.)

Once in a while I challenge my memory to recall which movies were in which auditoriums on the day we opened. Here’s how I think it was:

Screen 1 – 3 Ninjas Screen 2 – Looney Tunes Hall of Fame & Unforgiven Screen 3 – Unforgiven Screen 4 – Single White Female Screen 5 – Single White Female Screen 6 – Stay Tuned Screen 7 – Cabeza de Vaca Screen 8 – Honey I Blew Up the Kid Screen 9 – Raising Cain Screen 10 – A League of their Own Screen 11 – Sister Act Screen 12 – Death Becomes Her Screen 13 – Diggstown Screen 14 – Whispers in the Dark
