AMC Loews Cityplace Going From 14 Screens to Zero Come Sunday
Justin Scott, a spokesperson for AMC Entertainment, tells Unfair Park today that the theater chain will be shuttering its Loews Cityplace 14 location on Sunday. When asked why Kansas City-based AMC Entertainment was closing the multiplex on Haskell Avenue, Scott told Unfair Park, "You know, Cityplace 14 was identified as a theater that no longer competes effectively in the marketplace. We're always upgrading, either by adding news screens or disposing of older ones, so other than that I don't have specific reasons. That's about it."
Scott doesn't know what will become of the 60,000-square foot theater, which is on the county tax rolls for about $8 million. The property is owned by something called Knights Stemmons Freeway LLC on Monticello Avenue, according to the Dallas County Appraisal District. Will update shortly. --Robert Wilonsky
