AMC 9 theatre torn down in Lower Paxton Twp. - abc27 WHTM

AMC 9 theatre torn down in Lower Paxton Twp.

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The life span of a movie theater can be very short and one in Lower Paxton Township shows just how short.

Twenty two years ago, the AMC 9 movie theater at the Colonial Common Shopping Center  opened, becoming the state-of-the-art movie theater in the Harrisburg area.

Now, there is very little left.

Demolition crews recently began tearing it down.

The AMC 9 closed down for good three years ago because it could no longer compete with newer and bigger stadium-seating theaters.

Demolition crews also tore down and relocated several neighboring stores.

The shopping center is currently looking for a buyer for the property but said another movie theater will not be going in.
