Continuing its expansion in the Los Angeles market, AMC Theatres said it would take over the lease of the Laemmle Fallbrook 7 complex in West Hills.
“We already have a strong presence in the area, but we’re very excited at the opportunity to not only add to the AMC family in the area, but to turn this theater into one of the nicest in the country,” Mark McDonald, executive vice president of development at AMC, said in a statement.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The move is the latest by AMC, the nation's second largest theater chain, which has been beefing up its presence in the L.A. market, where it already has 28 theaters. AMC opened its first Southern California dine-in movie theater in Marina del Rey in November.
The Kansas City, Mo., chain, acquired last year by China's Dalian Wanda Group for $2.6 billion, operates 4,804 screens in 332 theaters mainly in the U.S.
