AMC Classic Grand Island 7

Dickinson Theatres opened the Mall Stadium 7 located in the Conestoga Mall on April 2, 2004. This was one of two theatres located in the mall, the other is the Carmike Conestoga 4. The Mall Stadium 7 was the newer theatre and featured all stadium seating, online ticketing, digital sound, seats with cup holders and many other amenities. The theatre played first run attractions. Later operated by Starplex Cinemas. Taken over by AMC December 16, 2015. It was closed on May 1, 2023 and was demolished in early-June 2023.

Woodsonia Real Estate has purchased the mall property and announced plans for a $220+ million redevelopment project. Initial reports mentioned a cinema being included with the new project and seemed to indicate that talks were underway with AMC. However, it appears something went amiss, as Woodsonia is now suing AMC to vacate the property. More recent reports indicate that all but three of the tenants have accepted buyouts and Woodsonia is now entering a legal battle to evict the three holdouts (AMC, Best Buy, and Joann Fabrics).

This past week a judge ruled in favor of Woodsonia and ordered AMC to vacate the property. While the theatre is currently closed and demolition has begun on other areas of the mall, AMC is listing the site as “temporarily closed” and representatives have made statements that they still hope to find a way to retain the theatre/reopen.

It seems odd that AMC is putting up such a fight for this location. Beyond clearly being a lost cause, this theatre wasn’t exactly a top performer. Perhaps, it’s part of some negotiating ploy for a future theatre at the new development.

AMC changed their listing to “permanently closed” on May 31, 2023 and the theatre was demolished in early June.

Here’s a little wise fact: This theater when it first planned in June 2003 originally announced a possible early-2004 opening as an eight-screener. However, it was unclear if that ever happened.

This has to be the largest city in America with no full-time cinema.

This does raise the question, as to what is the largest U.S. city without a full-time cinema? Menefee, California has to be a contender, with a population of just over 100,000 and no operating cinema. However, unlike Grand Island, there are several within a reasonable driving distance.
