He was correct… the Regal website now has this theatre as the Cantera Stadium 17 & RPX. I’m not sure if the screen reduction was done in conjunction with the RPX renovations, but the timeline (the press release announcing the RPX theatre was dated March 16) indicates that it would have bben close.

Why did Regal downsize this theater? Did they demolish the unused auditoriums? Or are they just walled off and ignored?

The closed auditoriums were eventually gutted and turned into a Main Event Entertainment location.

The AMC Cantera 30 launched at the height of the mega-led boom. Announced in 1996, the venue launched on March 20, 1998. In 2005, AMC merged with the Loews Circuit. In 2007, the Cantera was renamed as the AMC Loews Cantera 30. In 2010, AMC acquired the Kerasotes Circuit of theaters causing competition issues. On June 28, 2010, AMC sold four locations to Regal to be in compliance including the Cantera.

On July 12, 2010, the venue was renamed as the Regal Cantera 30. Regal was neither a proponent nor practitioner of 24+ screen megaplexes. A deal was consummated in 2011 with Regal off-loading 13 screens carving up the property - a move that had occurred in a number of other AMC 24+ locations. On September 30, 2011, the downsized venue became the Regal Cantera Stadium 17 and, in 2013, it added an RPX screens as the renamed Regal Cantera Stadium & RPX. The Main Event upscale arcade took on the 13-screen area redeveloping it for its newest location that launched in September of 2014.

Regal closed the Cantera on March 16, 2020 for the COVD-19 pandemic along with all other hardtop theaters. The venue reopened in September of 2020 but closed again on October 8, 2020 along with the Cineworld / Regal locations again due to COVID-19. The venue reopened in 2021.

That’s the 3rd Chicagoland location that Regal closed in 2023.
