AMC closes the Cinema in Kennett, MO
KENNETT, MO — Another former Kerasotes property that was acquired by AMC has closed. The single screen Cinema formerly the Palace, was closed as of November 28. The theater has been a landmark in Kennett since sometime in the 1920’s.
Justin Scott, director of Public Relations, for AMC Theaters based out of Kansas City, Mo., says, “AMC continually upgrades the quality of our theater circuit by adding new screens and by disposing of older screens through closures and sales. We do, however, look at our theaters on an individual basis, Unfortunately, the AMC Kennett One has be identified as a theater that no longer competes effectively in the marketplace and will close at the end of business on Nov. 28.”
It will be hard to imagine a Kennett without a movie theater, as the Palace, as it once was called, has been a familiar landmark located on First Street in Kennett since the early days of the 1900’s.
