AMC Cinemas® (AMC) has been an industry pioneer since 1920, when Edward Durwood opened his first cinema in Kansas City, Missouri, United States.
In 1963, Edward Durwood’s son, Stanley, opened the world’s first purpose-built multiplex cinema in AMC’s home-town of Kansas City. This drive toward innovation would eventually reach across to England and start an entertainment revolution.
