AMC has placed this theater under there AMC Classic branding that operates low traffic and smaller locations as first run budget theaters. they are last to get major upgrades but will be getting the Coke freestyle units and be keeping the popcorn bucket and the Tuesday discount for stubs members.

Carmike Cinemas bought Digiplex in 2014, which resulted in them once again owning this theatre. It became owned by AMC as a result of AMC buying Carmike at the end of 2016.

The remodeling and expansion of the Fairgrounds Square Cinemas in Reading for Cinema Center was designed by the Philadelphia architectural firm JKR Partners, formerly known as JKRoller Architects.

Originally built as a 5 screen by Fox Theatres of Reading sometime around 1982-1983, Fairgrounds was sold to Carmike in the mid 1990’s when the banks forced Fox to unload most of its theatres.

Carmike closed the Fairgounds somewhere in the late 1990’s or early 2000’s where it was acquired by Marv Troutman of Millersburg (Cinema Centers chain) who expanded it to ten screens. Ten is still the current screen count. This theatre has never had 11 screens. (RC Movies in Reading is the venue with 11 screens).
