Mike — AMC is not in dire financial anything due to acquisition of Carmike or any other chain. The cause of their stock price declining so sharply was because of their investment in NCM (essentially an advertising company) and the way they chose to account for this on their financial statements. My understanding is that they reached a deadline and could no longer defer the loss and that accounting practices required them to recognize the loss.

Thanks Scott. That’s good to hear. I know that their corporate office in Atlanta told me any updates or remodels to the Carmike chain are on hold until late 2018 early 2019. They won’t even change the sign which sucks

So the sign still say AMC? Wouldn’t AMC require them to remove the signs as soon as possible? I can’t believe AMC is not doing everything they can to get their name off locations they no longer own.

Was in the area yesterday, still no permanent signs, just banners, the big one is showing some wear. Surprised they have not invested in signage yet, it has been a year or so since the spin-off from AMC. Seemed very busy for 4PM on one of our first decent weather Saturdays.

The Tilgham 8 cinema closed on March 18, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic along with theatres all over the world. Though hoping to reopen and connecting with its audience through social media into July of 2020, the theatre was closed permanently on July 13, 2020 when New Visions Circuit went out of business. All of its other locations were closed permanently, as well.
