Vernon Hills, IL: Hawthorn Mall Movie Theater to Open May 1, 2015

Posted on Thursday, January 29th, 2015 and updated on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 6:11 PM

The new AMC Theatres location at the Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills, Illinois will open by May 1, 2015, according to an article published recently in the Chicago Tribune:

Marvel’s legendary team of superheroes is speeding up construction at Westfield Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills.

Mall officials confirmed the new AMC theater being built on the campus’ far north side will be open by May 1 — about six weeks earlier than expected — to coincide with the release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Vernon Hills village trustees and administrators were given the news during a Jan. 19 tour of the construction site.


Once completed, the venue will have 12 screens with a total of 1,600 seats. Alcohol will be served, alongside a small food menu.

Update: The theater now has a name: AMC Hawthorn 12

The AMC Showplace Vernon Hills 8 is located just South of the Hawthorn Mall, across Highway 60, and it would be odd for two theaters to continue operating in such close proximity, especially when owned by the same company. Either this means that the Showplace will close, or perhaps it will become a second-run location. Other competition includes the Regal Lincolnshire Stadium 21 & IMAX which is about four miles to the South.
