The screen count needs to be updated to 28 as a result of the fork and screen renovation that gutted out Auditoriums 1 & 13 as part of the expanded lobby on that end. The official theatre name is AMC Studio 28 with IMAX and Dine-In Theatres despite the sign out front still has the old name of Studio 30 on it.

Theatres #2 to 6 are pure “Fork & Screen” Theatres, and Theatres #7 to 12 are a combination of “Fork & Screen” and “Cinema Suites” Theatres, with 3 of these theatres are the Cinema Suites. i don’t know which auditorium numbers.

I saw Buried last month in one of the small auditoriums (it was the only theatre in Kansas City running it). The auditorium had digital projection (as with most, if not all auditoriums there) and leather (possibly pleather, but still) seats, amazingly enough. Despite several people walking out after 30 minutes (the film was an arthouse drama rather than the horror film it was promoted as), it was a great theatre experience.

Olathe is a suburb of Kansas City (of which the metropolitan area is full of megaplexes). AMC just wants to serve their homebase with a large theatre. And the theatre actually has 29 screens.

I saw one movie here last year, Paranormal Activity (while it was still in limited release). Played pretty well in the 600+ seat auditorium it was showing in.

A very nice theater. Watch out for teen friendly flicks as we actually left without watching the movie we were going to pay for as it was very loud.

It’s hard to imagine – Olathe KS has a NEED for 30 screens? Very impressive nonetheless. I especially liked how you could pay for your popcorn and soda, get a printout ticket of it, and walk to an express lane to get it without waiting. Very nice!

Here’s an article about the renovations at the theater:

AMC Entertainment Inc. said Friday that the renovated wing of AMC Studio 30 will open to the public Oct. 31.

The Kansas City-based company said in a release that it has transformed an entire wing of the Olathe theater into Fork & Screen, which includes casual, in-theater dining and entertainment; Cinema Suites, an upscale in-theater dining and entertainment option; and MacGuffins, a bar and lounge area. AMC Studio 30 is the first AMC location in the country to feature all three test concepts under one roof.

“The Fork & Screen test concept transcends anything our guests have seen before, and we look forward to everyone in our hometown experiencing this flagship location,” AMC Entertainment CEO Peter Brown said in the release.

Fork & Screen will feature eight auditoriums reserved for customers 18 and older and minors accompanied by a parent or guardian. Customers 21 and older can upgrade to one of three Cinema Suites auditoriums featuring reserved seating.

we must have been having problems with the imax projector or there just wasnt an imax print out at the time. we still have a 35 mm projector in the booth but we rarely use it and mostly use it for spare parts that we dont have extra of.

And they reopened the IMAX screen. They must of had a problem that took them about a month to fix. Also Screen 2 is the one screen that is dark.

It appears that they have done away with the IMAX screen and most likely making this back into a regular 35 MM screen or Digital.

AMC Covina 30 which is of a different design has only about 4500 seats. Most of the auditoriums are only 75-100 seats with 4 in the 250 range, 2 in the 380 range, and 2 in the 500 range.

I think so, the AMC-30 near Toronto has almost 6000 seats.

That doesn’t sound right as the Studio 30 in Houston that looks excatly like this one has 6032 seats and the other Mesquite Studio 30 in Mesquite, TX has 6008 seats. Now through this I am estimating that Studio 30’s capactiy would be somewhere around 5800 seats since they have taken seats out of the IMAX screen and darken screen 1.

rivest266 on January 6, 2006 at 12:37 pm reports that this theatre has 4,200 seats
