Wrong on both claims. The AMC Town & Country 6 actually opened in 1976. It was not the first multiplex in Arizona.

I think you didn’t read what was said correctly, he said that it was AMC’s first multiplex theater in Arizona, not Arizona’s first ever multiplex.

They are really not closed off perse, They close off one wing to movies showings but they are rented out for private events, meetings, and other special events. My work has rented out a few times a theatre and it’s been on the side that’s been closed off, you don’t have to deal with the movie goers and feels more private.

The original theatre was opened when the mall opened and was run by General Cinemas and later sold to Harkens sometime around the late 1980’s and closed in the early 2000’s due to Harkens North Valley 16 3 miles away. Picture Show took ownership in 2010 and renovated the entire theatre with stadium seating and all digital projectors. Picture show used this theatre for there new premium theater concept showing new movies and luxury seating as they where a small family budget 2nd run theatre chain.

Metro Village 6 opened in late 1970’s along with it’s identical twin sister Fiesta Village 6 by General Cinemas. Petsmart now stands where it was. General Cinemas sold all there valley theaters to AMC Theaters in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. AMC took ownership in 1987 and closed it with 6 others theaters in between 1998 and 2000 due to the popularity of the Megaplex theaters. AMC closed Laguna Village 6, Gateway Village 10, Three Fountains 4, Fiesta Village 6, Sunvalley Plaza 10, and Bell Plaza 8. Town & Country 6 was the only theater that survived the AMC multiplex massacre by killing any theatre that had less then 10 screens during the turn of the millennium. T&C 6 survived two more years as the last AMC muliplex by becoming AMC’s independent art’s and value theatre but was closed in 2001. I was one of the lucky AMC employees who helped close it down. T&C 6 was AMC first built valley theatre and also the the valley’s first muliplex theatre.
