News About This Theater

Concession Stand

The Randhurst Theater opened at the mall of the same name in 1965, originally a single screen theater. In the early-1980’s, it was twinned, and a few years later, two more screens were added. The theater was operated by General Cinema. The theater closed in the mid-1990’s.

AMC built a new, sixteen screen megaplex at the mall in 1996, which replaced the old fourplex.

The Randhurst 16 Theaters was closed April 21, 2011, and was demolished in the summer of 2011.

Take advantage of the new photo abilities and take some photos of it half demolished.

This is wrong. It opened in 1996. November 22nd 1996 to be exact. I know as I worked there the first day.

Wow…so hard to believe. 15 years is a very short lifespan for a movie theater. This theater replaced the old Randhurst twin. It is very similar to the AMC at Northbrook Court that opened at the same time. Oh well. I’m glad to see, at least, that AMC opened a new theater there.
