I thought AMC would not use the Classic brand on anything with more than 12 screens. Guess I was wrong.

While I kinda get the fast food comparison, its also kinda a bad one too. Theatres play the same movies, regardless of what chain they are. AMC may be the McDonald’s of movie theatres in terms of size, but its not like you can get a Big Mac at Burger King or Wendy’s.

Back to the topic, AMC is kind of a bland name, but I think there are far worse chains to be number 1. While many people miss the old days of Loew’s, not many people will be sad about AMC taking over Carmike ten years from now. My advice is go to whatever the best theatre in your area is playing the movie you want to see.

New York City has about the same population as my state and the two closest states combined. The quality of movie theatres in New York are the best in the country. A bad New York movie theatre would be one of the nicer ones in my area. I would love this theatre to in my area no matter whose name was on it. A good theatre is a good theatre. It may not be the best in New York, but it would be the nicest theatre for a hundred miles in many parts of the country.

Now operated by Marcus Theatres, which bought Wehrenberg Theatres at the end of 2016. Similar to AMC Loew’s, Marcus' page for this location has Wehrenberg’s logo next to Marcus' logo. Wehrenberg appears to still use its own rewards program rather than becoming part of Marcus' program, although that will probably change eventually.

rayman29 commented about Playtime During the Previews? Playgrounds Are the Latest Movie Theater Accessories on Apr 19, 2017 at 11:58 am

As a child I had a pretty short attention span, but seeing movies in the theatre probably helped expand it. This might be a good way to introduce kids to the movie theatre the first or second time, but at the same time I think its ridiculous. If kids can no longer see a movie without a playground to use before the movie and during intermission(what movies are long enough to require an intermission anymore?), how are they ever going to do grow up and work all day? And people wonder why so many people text while driving, or during a movie!

Does anyone have any idea about what the relationship is like now between AMC and Magic Johnson, if any? With AMC dropping LOEWS and other names leftover from other chains, I wonder if Magic Johnson will be dropped too, assuming they are are allowed to do so.

Yes, the deal became official in December, and all former Carmike theatres are scheduled to be be renamed by the end of this month.

The reason AMC is finally removing Lowe’s from theatre names has to do with AMC buying Carmike. With the Carmike buyout finished, AMC is now the largest theatre chain in the U.S. As a result, AMC has decided to get rid of the names of theatres they acquired so every theatre now just carries the AMC name. AMC now has 3 brands, AMC Amazing (flagship theatres, amazing isn’t part of the name or the signs) AMC Classic (smaller theatres in towns and small cities, mostly former Carmike locations, although AMC has said they will use this name on other locations as well), and AMC Dine In (replacing Dine and Fork, and Carmike’s Dine In locations named Ovation Cinemas)

BobbyS, do you mean the whole history of Carmike, or just of AMC buying it?

Google tends to update its street view images every 3 or 4 years. The current one of this theatre is from June 2014, so it probably will be updated this year if not next year.

AMC’s website still says AMC Lowe’s. I’m sure AMC will change that soon, but they’re probably more focused on getting all the former Carmike theatres listed on AMC’s website first.

I’m not sure how modernized this theatre is. There’s a Facebook page to boycott it.
