Looks like the AMC Tilghman Square 8 is undergoing conversion to all recliner seating, according to the AMC website. Right now, only 4 screens are currently open.

It is my understanding that AMC has agreed to sell the Tilghman 8 in order to satisfy the stipulation with the US justice department with regard to its acquisition of Carmike.

The Chain is New Vision Theaters now a group of Former Digiplex and Carmike Execs decided to leave and form a new chain and acquired the locations AMC was required to sell.

Anybody else find it interesting that this new chain that now has all of the “divested” AMC/Carmike locations is linked to AMC’s website like they are a division of AMC? How does that satisfy the Justice Department? Or is this just a temporary courtesy to guests so they aren’t confused during the transition?

Most people who goes to movie can’t tell the difference between one chain from another. I think AMC will post New Visions times just like Cinemark did for Rave Motion Picturs for the time being, as a matter of convenience for its customers

New Vision’s management team previously founded Clearview, Access IT/Cinedigm, and Digiplex, a few went to work for Carmike and New Vision’s HQ is what was Digiplex’s corporate office. The company was formed right as the AMC merger was approved and backed by private equity. It’s interesting this time around AMC didn’t do a deal with a top ten chain (in the past they swap theaters and cash with Regal to satisfy the DOJ when they acquired Kerasotes and Loews Cineplex). This time around they sold two to the small Picture Show chain and the rest to New Vision. NV’s base this time around is much stronger than the kinds of mom and pop and small exhibitors that Digiplex and Clearview consolidated – the group includes a couple of recliners and bars, a dine-in theater, and a few premium large screens (Big D and IMAX). We shall see what the plan is for NV – if they like Digiplex and Clearview take the company public and grow or focus on running these locations and upgrade a few of the smaller/older theaters in their new portfolio.
