AMC Classic Fairlane 21

Opened in 2000 as a part of the Jack Loeks chain, it was operated by Loews-Cineplex and then by AMC when Loew’s was absorbed into AMC.

Essentially, this megaplex replaced the former UA cinemas which were inside the Fairlane Town Center Mall, as the building was constructed immediately adjacent to the wing of the mall where the UA cinemas used to be. It has an impressive, fanciful, almost Disneyesque fa├žade. By 2017 it also contained an IMAX theatre. It was closed by AMC on November 13, 2022.

Apparently closed permanently earlier this week, but sounds like a renovation and re-opening under a different operator is a possibility.

It’s hard to imagine that any new exhibitor will take this one because it will require an extensive remodel and it’s attached to a dead mall. With a superior Emagine Canton just 10 miles away, this will sit empty, be demolished, or become something else.
