AMC to Fix Theaters for Wheelchair Access

December 10, 2003|From Reuters

Movie theater chain AMC Entertainment Inc. said it would spend $21 million over five years to modify 113 stadium-style theaters after a federal court ruled that it violated regulations regarding accommodations for people in wheelchairs.

In January, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California ruled that AMC violated regulations involving parking areas, signs, ramps, toilet location and other factors.

AMC said it would remedy 12 theaters surveyed by the Justice Department, which filed the suit in January 1999. It also plans to make improvements at an additional 101 theaters.
