Quincy Mall officials said they are zeroing in on a company to open a new theater in place of the former AMC 3.
The name of the company will not be released until papers are signed but mall officials confirmed the unknown company wants to open the new theater by mid-May to capitalize on the blockbuster season.
The mall announced in late December 2018 the AMC 3 would close in January of 2019.
At that time, Quincy Mall spokesperson Anaise Berry told KHQA the AMC Theater across the street at 300 North 33rd Street played a role in the decision to close.
Mall officials also told KHQA Thursday a new comic book shop will be opening a few spots down from the theater in the next few months.
