Rayman29 unfortunately AMC put a hold on all renovations to the Carmike chain theaters they purchased until 2018 or early 2019. The merger caused them to get into a desperate financial situation. Carmike sucked as a chain like this theater my local theater here was opened in 1996 and Carmike did nothing to keep it up or renovate it.

This was taken over by Excellence theatres in 1988 giving Excellence the first-run monopoly in Siouxland until 2004.

Nikki Paul, who for decades worked at the box office of several movie theaters in Sioux City, most recently this one, has died at the age of 100. While she stopped working at the box office several years ago, she continued as a Walmart greeter until last year.

steventonysmith, that’s not really a photo of what the theater will look like. AMC uses that photo on the theater page of many of their theaters on AMC’s website. Basically its a stock image used to give an idea of how the theater looks, but each theater is different.
