Out With The Old, In With The New for Waco Theater
KWTX's John Carroll reported that a movie theater in Waco is getting the necessary changes it deserves after an ownership change three years ago.
The 16 screen movie theater in Waco is getting new signage for their location on Tuesday. Employees of the Alamo Sign Co. are taking down the the 22 year old signs that used to display the theater as the Starplex Galaxy 16.
The theater is located at intersection of Franklin Avenue and Valley Mills Drive in Waco. The new signs going up at the location will officially unveil the new location as, AMC Classic Galaxy 16.
AMC Theatres acquired Starplex Cinemas in July 2015 for $172 million. Spokesman of AMC, Ryan Nooman spoke on the acquisition of Starplex Cinemas. Nooman said, "As you can imagine, with a few hundred theaters to rebrand, along with the amount of work that goes into design, planning and construction for each theater, it’s not a quick undertaking."
Since the time of the sale back in 2015, the theater in Waco has went under many renovations. New seating has been installed a couple of years ago, and an IMAX screen was added to the theaters arsenal last summer. Automated drink machines have been installed in the lobby for movie goers, as well as a full bar service for those old enough to drink alcoholic beverages.
