AMC Theaters is Already Hiring to Fill Former Arclight Cinema Space in Westfield Montgomery Mall
AMC Entertainment Holdings, inc (NYSE: AMC)., the parent company of AMC Theaters, is taking over several former ArcLight Cinemas, including the theater at Westfield Montgomery Mall which debuted back in 2014. It was the first theater outside California and the only one in the Washington, D.C. area at the time.
The ArcLight Theater located at 7101 Democracy Blvd in North Bethesda was billed as a luxury theater space with recliner-style stadium seating, dine-in space and alcohol sold at concession. It officially closed in April 2021.
Now, even before an official announcement, AMC has posted multiple positions related to the Montgomery County indoor mall. The company is looking for a Crew Leader and Crew staff to operate the theater.
Rumors were confirmed when a posting on AMC’s website labeled the newly acquired theater space as AMC Montgomery 16. The page has since been taken down.
AMC recently acquired the former Pacific Northridge Fashion Center 10 in Northridge, California, and the former Arclight Chicago 14. Pacific Cinemas was an Arclight sister company owned by The Decurion Corporation.
The AMC DINE-IN Rio Cinemas 18 in Gaithersburg is one of 28 in the country and the only one of its kind in the D.C. area. It features AMC Signature recliners, reserved luxury seating, a full menu and
seat-side service, and IMAX with Laser at AMC.
Kansas City-based AMC is the largest movie exhibition company in the world with over 1,000 theatres and 11,000 screens worldwide.
