Things looked bright for the future of AMC on February 28, 2020, and to note the March 5 opening of the Porter Ranch 9, the Los Angeles Times published an article on Los Angeles area AMC Theatres, which began with the La Habra 4 in 1969.
In a Times interview John McDonald, Executive Vice President, U.S. Operations, related the future plans for AMC’s biggest market. In fact Mr. McDonald began his career at the AMC City Of Industry, California in 1975 as an usher and ticket taker.
The Porter Ranch 9, expecting to draw customers from the San Fernando Valley, was open from March 5 to 17, 2020, before temporarily closing because of Covid-19. So what is Porter Ranch’s claim to fame? Porter Ranch Park, was a filming location for the 1982 movie “E.T.“ and is two and a half miles away from the Porter Ranch 9.
The Porter Ranch 9 was AMC’s first new LA area theatre in a decade and at the time they had 35 locations and 470 screens in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties. Future plans included Montclair, California and Westfield Topanga in Canoga Park to replace the Promenade 16 in Woodland Hills.
The Porter Ranch 9 was designed by Architects Orange.
