I grew up in Maple Grove. For the longest time, all we had was a 6 screen Mann theater. It did the job, but getting this shiny new AMC was such a big deal.
I couldn't even guess how many flicks I went to over the years. Enough to get a brick from this place at least.
Sadly, it's gone. That is seriously sad, for me.
The AMC Arbor Lakes 16 theater in Maple Grove has closed for good.
A message on the theater's website saysthe theater, which had 16 screens, has closed permanently. The next closest theater is the AMC Coon Rapids 16.
The theater closed after business on Jan. 6,CCX Media said. Everyone who worked there was offered the opportunity to transfer to other AMC locations.
The abrupt closure of the theater leaves the city without a movie theater after the Mann Cinema closed in 2012 and then became a Whirly Ball.
