AMC Entertainment Inc, (AMC) acquired Loews Theaters in 2006. Today, the merged company has over 450 theaters located throughout the United States and abroad.
About AMC Loews Theaters
At Loews, you can expect to find stadium seating with 'loveseats'. This feature, first introduced by AMC in 1995, allows movie-watchers to lift the armrest in the middle of two seats. In addition to presenting audiences with the latest feature films, AMC Loews offers 3D films and IMAX movies, all using the latest digital technology.
In addition to the roomy seating, each seat has its own cup-holder, located in the seats' armrests. Each location has concession stands that serve nachos, popcorn, soda, and candy.
AMC Acquires Loews
The Loews Company was originally founded in 1904. In 2006, AMC Entertainment Inc. merged with Loews Cineplex Entertainment Corp. At the time of the merger, Loews, with 200 theaters internationally, was the oldest movie theater company in the United States. AMC owned about 230 theaters at the time. In total, AMC now operates approximately 450 movie theaters in 30 states and over a dozen international locations.
Showtimes and Locations
AMC co-founded the Websites Fandango.com and MovieTickets.com in 2000. Both of these online services can help you locate your nearest theater and find upcoming showtimes for movies on the big screen. You can also locate your nearest Loews Theater by visiting AMCTheatres.com and entering your postal code. In addition to finding movie times and locations, you can also purchase tickets online.
