Cinetopia sues AMC

Post by Elrod » Mon May 07, 2018 9:17 am

It seemed to me like this ought to have its own thread, but this is my first topic, so feel free to move this to the Prairiefire thread if appropriate.

This was interesting:
Cinetopia claims that when AMC officials contacted them in 2013 after learing of Cinetopia’s plans to build a cinema as an anchor to Prairiefire. AMC met with Cinetopia officials, saying they were interested in buying the Overland Park facility, then told Cinetopia that it should transfer ownership for free.

“When Cinetopia declined this ‘offer,’ AMC responded: ‘Okay, then I guess we will see what happens next summer when you try to open,’” the suit claims.

I've been wondering if that (the AMC vs Cinetopia fight) had actually gone away. What is never mentioned when Cinetopia makes their case is the experience of going to a movie out there is such a pain. You have to navigate a huge parking garage, which surburbanites in particular seem to loathe. And they missed the boat by not having reclining seats in their big theaters.

Maybe if Cinetopia operated competitively in anyway they wouldn't be performing so bad. If I were them, I would go after Dumpster Fires owner too for never finishing the development.
