Carmike 10 begins transition to AMC

The Carmike 10 theater at 1909 N. Perkins Rd. is getting the facelift some have clamored for in Stillwater after Carmike Cinemas was acquired in December.

The theater was closed Tuesday as the location began its system conversion to AMC's after AMC Entertainment Holdings acquired Carmike several months ago. It was unknown how many Carmikes would be changing names or simply updating concession options, but AMC Public Relations Director Ryan Noonan provided the News Press with information that confirms what some have wished for: complete rebranding of Carmike locations to AMC locations with name changes.

All Carmike locations nationwide will receive one of three brands – AMC, AMC Classic or AMC Dine-In. The Carmike 10 in Stillwater will become a basic AMC theater, which will include Coca-Cola Freestyle that the location recently added. 

Changes are to be completed through April, according to AMC. Stillwater's theater will be open for business Wednesday and has showtimes available. Anyone with Carmike loyalty reward points and gift cards will be able to continue to use them if they have them, and once the AMC facelift is completed, AMC Stubs will become the loyalty program available for registration.

However, the stimulus pricing will not be a permanent carryover when Carmike locations become AMCs. "Note that as a special limited-time offer, AMC is offering all-day $5 Tuesday ticket pricing and specially-priced concession items exclusively for AMC Stubs members at all AMC and AMC Classic locations that were former Carmike Cinemas locations," according to AMC. There is also no expectations of "significant changes" in ticket prices once the rebrand is finished.
