The largest house only has like 190 seats. This theatre would not get anything more than what it already has. No recliners either. They have 18 screens with a total of 1900 seats. It does more than enough business for its small seat count.
Jeffpiatt. Yes upgraded and new locations are now handled by the lcd screens in the box office. I was just pointing out that some locations like AMC and Regal on 42nd st in NYC, AMC Universal Hollywood, and the Alamo Drafthouse in Kansas City do have a digital marquee in front of the building. Remenicent of the old marquees that are being replaced.
CTCrouch is right. Showtimes variy daily now major releases will have more time on weekends with lesser films haveing fewer. Additionally with reserve seating now becoming the norm searching showtime online and via smart phones is the primary means for people to find the movie they want to see. This leave an externally small number of people actually show up at a movie theatre not knowing what to watch. The need for a marque to advertise a movie at a particular is no longer nessisary. On the other had, a small of locations are getting digital marquees that will advertise a particular movie but not the time.
Actually that’s standard AMC practice to reduce operating hours during off peak season on low volume theatres. No reason to operate for a hand full of people until the winter and summer holidays. They will expand again.
They will be converting one of their current auditoriums into the IMAX screen. No new auditorium will be added.
As of today AMC Lowes Cityplace 14 has closed. It is to be demolished to make way for an apartment and retail complex.
As of today 1/7/2008 Sundance 11 is closed indefinitely.
This theatre actually has 3300 seats.
