The AMC Rolling Hills 20 started out originally as the AMC Rolling Hills 6. It was your typical early 80’s 6plex, mirrored in design to the AMC Marina Pacifica 6 amongst others. The theatre was always busy and expansion was needed. In the mid 90’s, it was determined that the theatre would be added on, and expanded to a 20 plex. A new 13 plex was added next to the old 6 plex (which stayed open, sans one doorway out) while the 6 plex stayed opened. AMC then opened the new 13 plex with stadium seating, and all theatres under 300 seats.

With the new theatre, the old 6 plex was semi gutted. The old 6 screens were rebuilt with stadium seating, and a 7th theatre was added where the former lobby was. The concession stand there was remodeled to form a very small satellite stand, and the restrooms were kept in the old lobby area, just long corridors led to them. Its definitely neat to see a movie in the old lobby!

My old racquet club was across the parking lot from the sixplex. The club was torn down around the time the theater was expanded. I saw Hellboy II at the theater yesterday and took a couple of photos:

Saw Rocky III, Ghostbusters II and Batman here, among others. Great days.

I took the wife to see “The Proposal” here last night. Not bad for a chick flick.

That is actually a picture of the former Rolling Hills Theater which has a separate entry. As mentioned above by twintermute, the 20day plex is behind this former theater.
