Look at that lineup.

KC Streetcar, Tom Hanks, Marlon Brando and such.

It's come a long way in the public perception

Not trying to hijack the thread, but every time I see the beautiful interior of the Mainstreet theater I get depressed that hometown team AMC absolutely nailed the renovation, then sold it, and left downtown.

And Alamo moved right in, changing hardly anything, with a lower-rent experience. That said, I think Alamo is fine, very good even, but I miss having what felt like the flagship AMC experience downtown. I digress...

+1. I still don't go to AMC theaters because of that move and them playing the border game for tax breaks. I understand how great of a deal that was for them financially, but there is no rule that says companies that make good self-interested moves have to be admired or appreciated.

There in a nutshell is where the American culture has gone wrong.
Attention to profit with no regard for costs.

It's a really fucked up way to live.

^ Brought on by globalization. I’d say the customer doesn’t care much about the costs either. We scour Amazon looking to save a dollar on our products instead of worrying where it’s made, environmental standards, how the employees were treated, or that our neighbors were laid off for a foreign worker. Corporations always reflect the standards of their customer.

I don't go to AMC Theaters because people talk during the movies. #TeamAlamo

Same here! If I want to see a movie and it's not playing at Alamo, I usually prefer to wait for video than deal with the crowds and obnoxious people at the suburban AMCs.
