This theater was notable after surviving an attempted arson. On January 12, 2018, the manager of the AMC Oakbrook Center 12 was notified by a staff member of a suspicious individual walking around the area of Screen #5 according to prosecutors. The suspect escorted out of the theater and the property quickly by the manager after the suspect pulled out a cigarette and a lighter from his pocket and attempted to light a cigarette.

This led to an arrest of 33-year-old David Ferguson of Chicago, and an executed arrest warrant was issued later that July 2 against him who was being held at the Cook County Jail, and on November 29, 2022, Ferguson was sentenced to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for pouring paint thinner on the floor inside Screen #5 of the theater as he pled guilty on a single count of attempted aggravated arson.
