Chenal 9 The­atres awaits ren­o­va­tion

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM - — Noel Oman

The cur­tains haven’t come up yet at the Chenal 9 The­atres at the Prom­e­nade on Chenal, which was ex­pected to re-open un­der new own­er­ship last month.

“AMC The­atres is still in ne­go­ti­a­tions with con­trac­tors and other ven­dors for the ren­o­va­tion,” said Bethany Siems mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor for RED De­vel­op­ment LLC, which man­ages the 306,000-square-foot ope­nair shop­ping and life­style cen­ter in west Lit­tle Rock.

Shop­ping cen­ter of­fi­cials ex­pect to re­ceive “an up­dated time­line for the project within the next week,” she said. “A press an­nounce­ment will be sent out fol­low­ing the up­date.”

The theater, which has eight screens and the state’s only IMAX screen, was ac­quired by AMC from B&B The­atres of Glad­stone, Mo. Chenal opened in 2008 as part of the Dick­in­son The­atres chain of Over­land Park, Kan., which B&B ac­quired in 2014.

AMC has 208 lo­ca­tions in the United States in­clud­ing the­aters in Batesville, Bella Vista, Fayet­teville, Fort Smith, Har­ri­son and Hot Springs.
