Universal Orlando has announced that their AMC Theatre will be closing to make way for their new partnership with Cinemark Theaters.

To begin the process of the transformation, the AMC Theater will be closed all-day on September 14th. Beginning the next day, on September 15th, the theaters will re-open under the new partnership and will begin their transformation; taking several months to upgrade and remodel the auditoriums. New, reclining, Cinemark Luxury Loungers with extendable footrests, cup holders, and plush seating will be installed in each of the 20 auditoriums.

In addition, a new Cinemark XD auditorium will be added. XD auditoriums feature expansive wall-to-wall screens, custom-engineered surround sound with multi-channel speakers, state-of-the-art projection systems, and offers comfortable, plush Luxury Lounger seating.
