AMC Essex Green closes; will reopen as Fork & Screen in November

WEST ORANGE, NJ — The AMC Essex Green closed on August 8. A $5 million investment will convert it into one of AMC Fork & Screen operations, featuring bar service and in-theater dining. Approximately 60% of the theater’s seating will be sacrificed to accomplish the transition. AMC also plans two other Fork & Screen theaters in New Jersey.

AMC said in a statement today, “Fork & Screen is the name of AMC’s in-theatre dining concept, featuring Fork & Screen, a casual, in-theatre dining and entertainment experience; Cinema Suites, a premium, upscale in-theatre dining and entertainment option; and MacGuffins, a bar and lounge area.”

Two other movie-and-dining theaters are also planned in the state — in Bridgewater Commons and at Menlo Park, AMC’s press department told Baristanet by phone today (Aug. 6).

This should help sagging theater sales in those towns. If these theaters do well, then other theaters might follow suit.
