AMC Theatres operates over 5,800 screens throughout the U.S., the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Hong Kong. Stanley Dubinsky, son of Edward Dubinsky and co-founder of AMC Theatres, began the company in 1961 after gaining control of local Durwood Theatre to form American Multi-Cinema Inc. The company incorporated military management and management science to revolutionize the theater industry. Today, AMC Theatres offers movie goers stadium-style seating, reclining seats, assortments of movie genres and show times, and concessions featuring popcorn, candy, and beverages. Most AMC Theatres offer RealD technology, Dolby Digital Sound, and floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall screens. Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group purchased the theater chain in September 2012. AMC Theatres produces annual revenues of about $2.6 million and maintains corporate headquarters in Kansas City, MO.
