This looks less like a failure to require since the Mall ownership still shows the building as “rented” but has the Anchor still as New Vision. seeing that its requireing you go to either South Whitehall or LC courthouse its likely a tax sale that started before AMC could even handle any lease issues. New Vision was that poorly run.

I suggest looking at the image I just sent out.

Based on the others on the list that the federal government gave them approval to reopen since they were still on the lease AMC went and reopened the larger locations with the more expensive projectors first. This one and one in Sparta they still legally own but haven’t rushed over to reopen. And the Sharrifs sale only lists liability to New Vision Theaters so my guess is that there letting the county recover the post bankruptcy Debts and owed taxes. And clear out the stuff new vision likely damaged. Then when they are in better shape they can go and update the smaller theaters. Probably adding PLF to them.

All of them are still closed. Who knows what they are doing, Tilghman is stuck in time at this point.

As of 3/27/2021, the interior signage is starting to be cleared and AMC signage is also starting to pop up again. Most noticeable is the AMC Safe & Clean. Atom Tickets has also renamed this theater back to being AMC.

All assets are assumed to be bought back by AMC

AMC is probably doing more than just putting back there signs and logos and getting the liquor license transferred back to them. They are likely installing new seats and equipment to replace everything that was sold by the County that’s if they didn’t manage to bid for some of it back like the projectors. But I picture some people have red recliners in there home theaters now.

They were selling all assets as a whole and everything is there from before. Why would they add new seats and equipment if they lost tons of money. If they were fully bided, they would use assets from the closed theaters.
