It was announced today that AMC Entertainment — the Kansas City-based theatre chain — has been sold in North America. Six AMC theatres in Canada have been purchased by two other chains — Empire Theatres acquired two in the Greater Toronto area and Cineplex has purchased four in Ontario and Quebec. Theatres acquired by Cineplex include: AMC Courtney Park in Mississauga, AMC Yonge & Dundas in Toronto, AMC Winston Churchill in Oakville and AMC Forum in Montreal. Empire will add two Ontario theatres to their network — AMC Kanata 24 in Kanata and AMC Whitby 24 in Whitby. The exact date of the transaction has yet to be determined but it will happen within the next few weeks. AMC continues to explore options for its two remaining theatres in Canada — AMC Interchange 30 and AMC Kennedy Commons 24.
