The AMC Lennox movie theater has created countless memories for many in the Upper Arlington community. Whether remembering times with family, friends or a significant other, it will likely remain a centerpiece of many UA residents. 

AMC Lennox opened originally in the mid 1990s and has until recently stood unwavering. The COVID-19 regulations for movie theaters have forced establishments nationwide to close their locations. 

A new company, Phoenix Theaters Entertainment, has recently finalized their purchase on the building. This will be their first location opening in Ohio. 

The company worked quickly and opened for the holiday movie releases. 

Masks, social distancing and all other movie theater regulations will still be in effect when the new theater opens in the near future.
