- AMC Theatres – This chain of approximately 400 theatres will offer amenities such as recliner seating, MacGuffins bars, and premium large format (PLF) auditoriums like IMAX, Dolby Cinema, and a new proprietary PLF, named “Prime at AMC.”
- AMC Classic Theatres – This 200 theatre chain, will be the true successor to the Carmike Cinemas chain aimed at value customers in rural or suburban areas. It will offer Coca-Cola Freestyle machines, menu items like pretzel bites and movie nachos, refillable annual popcorn buckets and some may include MacGuffins bars and Prime at AMC. The brand logo for AMC Classic incorporates the folded “C” graphical element from the legacy Carmike brand logo and the brand is adopting Carmike’s “America’s Hometown Theatres” tagline.
- AMC Dine-In Theatres– With 60 locations equipped with full kitchens and MacGuffins full bars, this brand will offer full-service dining and delivery to seat and/or express-pick up of AMC’s menu and beverage offerings.
