Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield announced that it will open AMC Dine-In Topanga 12 movie theaters at its Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park on Thursday.
In conjunction with the grand opening of AMC Dine-In Topanga 12, the nearby AMC Promenade 16 at Westfield Promenade in Woodland Hills will cease operation and close at the end of the business day on Wednesday.
AMC Dine-In Topanga 12 — AMC’s first newly built theatre of 2022 — represents the entertainment anchor in the expansion at Westfield Topanga & The Village, and part of Westfield’s massive investment in renovating the center to create a world-class dining and entertainment district out of a former Sears department store space.
The luxury movie theater complex features AMC Signature Recliners and laser technology in every auditorium as well as ticketless entry, which allows guests to skip the box office entirely through access to their ticket on their mobile device.
The Dine-In Delivery to Seat concept allows guests to place their order in the lobby and have it delivered to their seat to enjoy as they watch their movie. The concession stand will offer dining options including chicken tenders, chicken cobb salad, hamburgers and milkshakes.
In the coming weeks, the movie theater will introduce the AMC MacGuffins adult beverage concept. Available to guests 21 and older, MacGuffins offers beer, wine and cocktails.
“During the last two years AMC has made a significant investment in expanding and enhancing the AMC movie-going experience in the Los Angeles market with acquisitions, renovations, and brand-new theaters,” Dan Ellis, executive vice president and chief operations & development officer at AMC, said in a statement, “When considering all we’ve done recently to make movies better in the Los Angeles market, I’m proud to say that opening AMC Dine-In Topanga 12 is among our most important accomplishments, for our company, for our studio partners and, most importantly, for moviegoers. … AMC Dine-In Topanga 12 is one of our crown jewels not only in the Los Angeles area, but in the entire country.”
“Establishing Westfield Topanga & The Village as the place in the San Fernando Valley to shop, dine and play — as well as one of the most attractive destinations on the West Coast — begins with the opening of AMC Dine-In Topanga 12,” said Geoff Mason, executive vice president of development, design, and operating management for Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield in the U.S., in a statement.
In March, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield sold the 34-acre Promenade property — where the AMC Promenade 16 is shuttering — for $150 million to a group of investors that included Stan Kroenke, owner of the Los Angeles Rams.
