AMC Theatres plans to construct a 24-screen theater and entertainment complex at the Foothill Ranch Towne Centre in Orange County, which is scheduled to be completed in October.
To complement the facility, AMC plans to construct a retail center for restaurants, book stores and record shops. The circuit compares the project to CityWalk. Cost of the AMC project is estimated at $ 20 million-$ 25 million.
Announcement of the project follows AMC chairman Stanley Durwood’s statement last week that AMC plans to add at least eight screens to its AMC Century 14 multiplex. The deal for the expansion of the Century City theater has not been finalized.
