Photo of the sign for the theatre as well as the grand opening ad posted in the photo section. Will someone get in that mall and get the theatre entrance? An phone picture will be OK.
Last Friday, I attended a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” at the new and improved AMC Chicago Ridge Theatres. The complex has done extensive renovations to the lobby and theatres. Each theater is equipped with new screens and seats (recliners for each moviegoer!). In the re-designed lobby, a full bar and lounge area has been added for patrons who wish to “brew & view”. Praises to AMC for finally upgrading this 31 year-old complex and providing a great theater experience located in one of the best malls in the Chicagoland area.
I would love to see pics of the interior of the theater. Even it’s entrance in the mall.
July 1st, 1988 grand opening in photo section. They also had trouble with construction
From the photos, wow, the C-O logo lasted until at least 2009 (based upon “17 Again’s” release date! Is that logo stil there?
It seems a lot of folks think this theater opened July 1, 1988. This is not correct. That date is the opening for the Commons Cinema across the street (99th St.) from the main Mall. The Chicago Ridge Mall Theatre was in business earlier in the 80’s. I have added in the photo section a ad showing what was playing at the theater in 1986. The theater was open earlier. I believe some of the confusion is because it became a AMC Theatre in ‘88. Same theater, different name.
I found something in the newspapers suggesting it opened 7/31/1981.
Yes, I Checked. It Opened On July 31, 1981. Please Update.
First Opened As A Triplex As “Chicago Ridge 1-2-3”. It Became A 6-Screener And A Cineplex Odeon Operated Theater On July 1, 1988.
The entire mall including the Chicago Ridge 1-2-3 did replace Oak Lawn’s Starlite Drive-In, which closed at the end of the 1979 season.
