arizonamillsimax_250pxHarkins Theatres has acquired the IMAX theater at Arizona Mills mall in Tempe.

The Valley-based theater chain made the announcement about 5 p.m. Thursday on its Facebook page, followed by a press release.

The new Harkins Arizona Mills IMAX will open at midnight Dec. 17 with James Cameron’s 3-D epic Avatar. An overhaul to make the venue better reflect the Harkins brand is planned for late next month.

Harkins’ press release says the acquisition will allow the company to show first-run films in IMAX format on the same day the film opens in other theatres across the Valley.

  • Hopefully, they’ll start bringing to this IMAX theatre the newest movies like Twilight: Eclipse, Avatar and other new favorites much, much sooner rather than wait three months to see them.

  • My sons class had a field trip to go to Imax today and they called yesterday and told the first graders they would no longer be able to come. They waited the day before the kids were supposed to go. Not fair at all to a six year old!

  • That site has had a history of problems. I remember, when I used to compile and format movie times for the Tribune, often not getting their information. We found out the IMAX people were getting locked out of the building for unpaid rent. It will be interesting to see whether Harkins can make a better go of it.

  • I used to work that the Mills Mall IMAX, and I am not surprised in the least by this. Hopefully Harkins management can make the IMAX theatre a better experience than the management did back when I worked there back in ’04-’06.

  • I remember a couple years ago the concession stand was a total mess.. There was none to wait on us, or take our tickets. Whenwe finally located someone, on the was to the auditorium we saw a couple of cock roaches carring a box of popcorn. Really they were that big.

  • My husband and I went to 2 movies (not IMAX) with relatives during the holidays. We normally do not go to movie theaters.. We tried to enjoy the very delightful Sherlock Holmes but one of the reasons we don’t go to theaters is that the soundtracks are , in our opinion, too insanely loud. This is true for non-IMAX theaters as well as IMAX theaters.

    This time we brought earplugs, however, found that we then couldn’t hear some of the dialog.

    I understand that individual theater managers can adjust the volume even tho I have been told recently by a Harkins manager that they “can’t” . How many complaints does it take for a theater manager to turn down the soundtrack? Will one do it?
    .
    Do you and the movie studios understand that you are losing customers because of the loud soundtracks.? Those I know who will not attend movies at a theater are: my husband and I, my son and his wife, 2 of my brothers and their wives, 3 friends and their spouses. One brother just subscribed to Netflix.

    am commenting here because I could not find another way to comment about this . If anyone has an idea how to get thru to movie producers and theater managers , please let me know.
