The theater chain, which closed its theaters earlier this year, expects to have lost between $2.1 billion and $2.4 billion in the first quarter.

TVs are much bigger and better now, and if there's gum stuck under your seat, at least it's from someone with similar DNA.

Black people should be boycotting AMC and many many other US businesses that have a history of racism. Cut off white folks money, that is something that they understand clearly.

This is all the fault of Les Otis. Well maybe not...Lester worked there as the I.T. guru but he had not a year of college. No degree. No nothin.

But AMC going out of business cuts off Black People's money too!
Not that you would understand this @4:58, but there are some Black People who find jobs and earn wages, and a lot of them, especially younger ones, work for AMC.

Not everyone is like you, @4:58, some Black People have a level of self-respect and dignity and want to better themselves.

a big part of movie theater attendance declines , prior to Covid, was blacks talking out loud during the movie..

Remember the 1$ pics ? Had a lot of fun at Brywood until the sons of darkness wrecked that- was my first indication that they lacked civility and the manners compliant with public enjoyment of any sort. That was 1987 ! Gave me a little taste that only they could wash outta me mouth. It just kept getting worse. Though it was up to them, as hard as I tried to be objective and forgiving, there was no redemption among them. Brywood became their theatre, and naturally went belly up and spouted black blood (that's a whaling term, oh hats of ass !) bout 1999 or sooner. Can you imagine trying to watch "12 years a slave" or "Django Unchained" with these enabled, emboldened young Droogs, who are just looking for a reason. Soon any non- offence will be reason to cry "fire" in a theatre. Theatre of the absurd. Fuck AMC and All media.
