Starting in the summer of 2012, guests at AMC Easton Town Center 30 can take advantage of AMC Dine-In Theatres, which combines restaurant cuisine and cocktails with AMC's noted immersive theatre experience and hit movies. AMC is converting 13 auditoriums and will retain 17 traditional auditoriums, giving guests the option to choose their experience.
"Dinner and a movie is a longstanding tradition, and we're excited to bring our dine-in concept to our guests in Columbus," said Gerry Lopez, chief executive officer and president of AMC Theatres. "AMC Dine-In Theatres is the premier spot for the dine-in moviegoing experience."
