AMC is probably doing more than just putting back there signs and logos and getting the liquor license transferred back to them. They are likely installing new seats and equipment to replace everything that was sold by the County that’s if they didn’t manage to bid for some of it back like the projectors. But I picture some people have red recliners in there home theaters now.

They were selling all assets as a whole and everything is there from before. Why would they add new seats and equipment if they lost tons of money. If they were fully bided, they would use assets from the closed theaters.

The theater is back open the signs outside still say New Vision Theaters but a dead company is unlikely to complain.

All signage inside except for some stars painted by the counter has been removed by AMC, AMC signage is up all inside with all projection also saying AMC. The exterior sign still says New Vision and is yet to be changed.

Update: the front of the building sign that said New Vision theaters has been replaced with an amc sign where it was 7 years ago, the one on tilghman and the one on the back of the building still say New Vision

AMC Theaters now offers Delivery to seat for online concession orders at this location. The former mcguffin’s bar is still closed and is unlikely to reopen until they regain a liquor license.
