Employee Confirms Hamilton AMC 24’s Screens Set To Go Dark As Theater Closes Tonight

November 8, 2020 updated November 9, 2020, Updated November 10, 2020 with official statement from AMC.

November 10, 2020 Statment from AMC:

AMC continues to have constructive discussions with our landlords as we work together to effectively manage through this COVID crisis. This includes reaching a global agreement with EPR Properties, one of our most prominent landlord partners, which was executed on July 1, 2020. In conjunction with that agreement, EPR made certain rent concessions in exchange for other rights, including its ability to terminate up to seven leases. In conjunction with this agreement, AMC has ceased operations at six EPR-owned theatre locations nationwide. AMC Hamilton 24, which closed at the end of business on Sunday, November 8, is the only AMC in this area impacted as a result of this agreement. Any further questions about the future of this location should be directed to EPR Properties.

AMC truly appreciates the support from its guests at AMC Hamilton 24, and we encourage moviegoers to continue enjoying the AMC experience at our nearby AMCs.

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–An employee who was not identified has told MidJersey.News during a visit tonight at the AMC 24 on Sloan Avenue, that tonight was the last night for the theater. The employee was not exactly sure for the reason of the closure but believes that the owner of the property has sold it. She also believed that the theater has to vacate by the end of the year since the lease is up but has decided to close now rather than later. The employee highly recommended several other AMC theater locations in the area including the one at Princeton Marketfair on Route 1.

There was no signage on the building stating the closing or other information posted. A reporter from another news agency stated that he reached out to AMC earlier today and did not receive a reply.

There was no other information available about the closure. It is well known that the COVID-19 Pandemic has hit the movie industry and theaters hard during this time.
