Movie Theater Returning to Tempe's Mill Avenue

Phoenix Business Journal, by Mike Sunnucks

Tempe’s Mill Avenue is getting a new movie theater complex.

Tempe City Councilman Kolby Granville announced last night that AMC Theatres will locate a cineplex in a complex that previously housed Harkins Theatres. The Harkins complex on Mill closed during the ill-fated construction of the Centerpoint condominiums.

Harkins ended up opening a new complex a few miles down the road at Tempe Marketplace.

Granville said on Facebook last night AMC plans on renovating the Mill Avenue theaters and will add a bar. He said the AMC on Mill complex could open this fall.
