Comments for Could Disney Buy AMC Theaters? Federal Judge Says Yes
First, the lawsuit you referenced had NOTHING to do with Disney. It was the US government that filed the suit to dismiss the 1948 decree. There’s absolutely no basis for ITM to lead with “Could Disney Buy AMC” – in fact I can’t find a single article that shows Disney has had any interest in buying AMC. What the heck are you folks smoking, and it must be some good stuff so for heavens sake share it with the rest of us.
But, that aside, we used to have 3 multi-screen movie theaters operated by different chains in our town, plus a few one-screen art-house independents. About a decade before the pandemic, 2 of the 3 multi-screens theaters closed because there simply wasn’t enough business. The only art-house screen left is with our local, non-profit art and theater center.
That’s market reality, and I get that. But if our one remaining movie theater became owned by one movie company, and all we saw were Disney or Lionsgate movies? That would suck. We could end up driving 20+ miles just to see movie from a different company. Or the reality, we’d never do that.
