#1104: Disengage

March 4, 2016

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #1103: The Silent Majority

If you work in the movie theater industry, you’ve probably heard about this merger already. There's a good chance AMC will need to divest some theaters before this goes through, but they’re not so much bigger than Regal that I see it getting stopped entirely. Two chains controlling 40% of the screens in the country just seems like a bad idea to me, though. 

Incidentally, if you’re curious about the takeover of the movie theater industry in the 20s and 30s, you can head over to Turn Out the Stars When You Leave (a.k.a. my MFA thesis project).
