The AMC company was founded in 1920 by Barney, Edward, and Maurice Dubinsky, who had been performing melodramas and various tent shows while travelling across the United States with an actress Jeanne Eagels. The AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. became the world’s largest movie theater chain after purchasing such companies as Carmike Cinemas, UCI Cinemas, and Odeon Cinemas in 2016. However, its parent company is Dalian Wanda Group, a Chinese conglomerate with a large number of theatres in the mainland of China.
Basically, AMC was the first company to introduce seats similar to the ones on stadiums, where viewers are able to get a smooth, unimpeded view of the screen. Also, the viewers are able to adjust the seatings’ armrests as well, and this feature is mimicked by all AMC’s competitors nowadays.
Even though the majority of the company’s theaters are branded as AMC, there are several other brands that the company has utilized, namely: Magic Johnson, Starplex, Loews, as well as several brands that it has acquired (GKC, Digiplex, Muvico, Sundace Cinemas, and Carmike). However, AMC’s management had taken a decision to phase out additional brands and transit all the company’s theaters to the common brand of AMC. Yet, the company decided to leave solely the Sundance Cinemas brand in use, whereas all other theaters will be rebranded to AMC.
