|Home: BigScreen Journal - Taylorville, IL: AMC Taylorville 2 Closes|
The AMC Taylorville 2 in Taylorville, Illinois closed on July 27, 2011, according to an article in The State Journal-Register:
Taylorville resident Kathy Drea says the pending closure of the city’s only movie theater is bad news for the entire community.
“It’s sad. A lot of times my husband and I would eat somewhere and then go to the movies,” Drea said. “We both work in Springfield, and on the weekend, the last thing we wanted to do was turn around and drive back to Springfield again.”
Ryan Noonan, director of public relations for Kansas City, Mo.-based AMC, confirmed in an email Wednesday that the AMC Taylorville 2 theater, on the north side of the downtown square, will close at the end of business today.
“AMC continually upgrades the quality of our theatre circuit by adding new screens and by disposing of older screens through closures and sales. We do, however, look at our theatres on an individual basis. AMC Taylorville 2 has been identified as a theatre that no longer competes effectively in the marketplace and will close at the end of business on July 28,” Noonan’s email says.
