I believe this opened as a Hoyts Cinema.

Ron would be correct. Looking at comments on the page for the AMC Chestnut Hill 5, both this cinema and the one in East Bridgewater were Hoyts Cinemas, then passed to Northeast Entertainment. Both cinemas appear to be leased to independent operators by BCG at this point.

Chestnut Hill is still AMC. The rumored sale did not occur.

I was strictly referring to the former Hoyts houses in East Bridgewater and Sharon; I referenced the Chestnut Hill’s page only because of comments by both Ian Judge & yourself, Ron, that clarified the ownership lineage both of the aforementioned theaters and their ownership. I said nothing specifically about the Chestnut Hill cinema. If I was unclear in that respect, well, that’s on me then.
