Earlier this month, Regional Radio News and TaylorvilleDailyNews.com reported that there were rumors circulating throughout the community about the possible closing of the AMC Cinema 1 and 2 in Taylorville.
Although they declined comment, AMC’s corporate office has confirmed that the theatre will be closing its doors at the end of business hours Thursday, July 28th.
Director of Public Relations Ryan Noonan, in a written statement, said,” that 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.”
Taylorville has had a theatre in the historical downtown district since the middle 1920’s according to sources.
