ShowPlace West 12

From Bloomingpedia

ShowPlace West 12 is a movie theatre with 12 screens owned by AMC Entertainment. It is located on the west side of Bloomington on west Third Street. The theatre opened in 2000. It's last known manager is Jamie Inman.

The theater is nearly underneath Third Street as it rises to cross SR 37. To reach the theater, there is a double traffic light allowing access to Wynndale Dr to the South and jog west, providing a severe traffic jam when a large movie lets out. Patrons should plan their exits accordingly.

The theater was built by Kerasotes Theatres, which at the time owned the existing ShowPlace East 11 theater and others in town. When it opened, in 2000, a majority of the mainstream movies started showing here, even though several major movies continued to show at the east location for the first year or two. Currently, most of the movies that show here are bigger budget movies and ones that cater to the conservative portion of Bloomington.

The base price is $10 for adults, with premiums for 3D and other special events. As their answer to Kerasotes Theatres's "Five Buck Club", AMC has a discount matinee price. Shows Monday through Thursday before 6pm are $5 as are those before noon on Friday through Sunday. Shows before 4 pm Friday through Sunday, and after 6 on M-Th are 7.50. Children under 12 are also less than full price.

Trivia

  • This is the theatre that showed all the Harry Potter movies.
  • One of the first movies shown here was Gladiator.
