The company has been in business over 90 years and was originally owned by a Midwestern family. In the 1950’s, Stanley H. Durwood is credited with the idea of having multiple screens in a theater. His family had just purchased the Roxy in Kansas City and it was running an Abbott and Costello film that was not earning much money. Durwood felt that if they could only create a theater with two screens, they could double their proceeds. Hence, the multiplex cinema was born. Over the years, AMC has continued its commitment to give movie-goers an unforgettable experience. AMC Theaters are equipped with the best sound and video equipment, along with comfortable seating.
