Leopardo Companies, Inc., has completed a 68,000-square-foot renovation of the AMC Yorktown 18 featuring AMC Red Kitchen.
The renovation was part of AMC Theatres’ strategy to enhance the overall movie-going experience by updating several of its theater locations throughout its circuit. Leopardo has completed projects for the company at several locations across the country, including the AMC 600 N. Michigan 9 in Chicago.
The AMC Yorktown 18 renovation consisted of the demolition and renovation of auditoriums, lobby and restrooms, as well as box office, guest services and concession areas. The auditoriums were also upgraded to include power reclining seats with tables to accommodate fast-casual dining.
The renovation also included the build-out of an AMC Red Kitchen, one of only two AMC locations in the United States to feature this dining concept, allowing guests to enjoy a meal during the movie from the comfort of their power recliner. MacGuffins, a bar and lounge that serves specialty cocktails, beer and wine, was also added during the renovation.
Serving as general contractor, Leopardo worked in collaboration with owner’s representative Jones Lang LaSalle and BRR Architecture to complete the project.
