The project was started in 1996 and opened in 1997, not 2001. Kerasotes built it.
Here is a part of a 9/21/05 article from the Arlington Daily Herald:
The Lake in the Hills multiplex on Randall Road will soon get a new landlord, but even the most die-hard movie fans will be hard- pressed to see the difference. Kerasotes ShowPlace Theaters, the eighth-largest theater company in the country, is selling 17 of its theaters throughout Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Missouri to a California trust.
The 12-screen Lake in the Hills theater, 311 N. Randall Road, is the only one in the Chicago area to be sold.
Tony Kerasotes, chief executive officer of the family-owned business, said the company is basically refinancing its properties by selling them to Realty Income Corp., a real estate investment trust based in Escondido, Calif., under a 20-year lease agreement. Kerasotes will lease back the theaters.
“The public will not know the difference,” he said.
The $200 million deal is expected to close by the end of the month.
This location became an AMC theatre in May 2010.
