New operator set to take over closed Lakeline Mall theater


A vacant theater at Lakeline Mall won’t stay dark for long.

AMC Theatres said Wednesday that it will take over the recently closed Regal Lakeline Mall 9 cineplex at 11200 Lakeline Mall Drive.

The theater is expected to reopen in nine months, following an extensive remodeling project that will cost several million dollars, according to Simon, Lakeline Mall’s operator.

When it debuts in the fall, the new AMC theater will features 650 plush power recliners, upgraded video and audio capabilities and enhanced food-and-drink offerings that could potentially include a bar.

Reserved seating will be available and tickets may be purchased at self-service kiosks in the lobby.

AMC’s only other Austin theater is at Barton Creek Square mall, which is also operated by Simon.

“Today’s announcement is evidence of our commitment to provide our guests the finest entertainment options at Lakeline Mall,” Monica Esparza, the mall’s director of marketing and business development, said in a written statement. “Designed with families in mind, we are pleased to share this new theatre with our community and visitors alike.”

Lakeline Mall, which has more than 150 retailers, opened in 1995 and recently underwent an extensive renovation.

DIY battery swap can bring new life to your old phone

After a few painful years of very cheap android phones, we finally gave my mother-in-law an old iPhone 5 that we were no longer using. I bought it new in 2012. I handed it down to my wife in 2014, and we handed it down to my mother-in-law last fall. The phone still has plenty of life left in it, although it will likely stop getting iOS updates when...

Several decisions to be made before selecting new headphones

Headphone season is in full force right now. If you’re about to make a new purchase, don’t get fooled with fancy marketing, colorful boxes or hype. Instead, consider these features when shopping around (the order of importance depends on you): wireless vs wired, earbuds vs over the ear, cost and sound quality (which would be No. 1 for me)...
