AMC Van Ness is Closing, Out of Nowhere

The 4 story AMC on Van Ness has canceled all showtimes past Friday Feb 8th, and apparently is being shut down permanently, according to a source close to theater management.

It’s no secret that AMC Van Ness 14 has struggled in the past years, the theater has felt understaffed and under-visited.  Our theory is that their practice of charging IMAX prices for that miniature ‘Imax Jr.’ theater they had, pissed so many people off over the years that it finally caught up with them (just a theory).

It probably didn’t help that last month the U.S. box office recorded its worst January performance since 2013 with a box office haul of $815M.  Many movie theaters across the country have been struggling.

AMC’s other San Francisco theaters, the Metreon and the Kabuki, show no signs of closing as far as we know, and no word on a new tenant at AMC Van Ness yet, the property owner is SITE Centers.
