Why Is AMC Theatres in Webster, NY Closed For Movies?

By Pastor John on 7/13/2021

This past Sunday, we weren't sure we'd be able to have church.  AMC unexpectedly closed down late Saturday afternoon saying it was due to a maintenance issue.  There have been a lot of rumors going around but we spoke with the theater manager Sunday and I thought I would clear up the confusion.

The specific issue that they are having is an internet outage.  They depend on the internet for scheduling movies, ticket sales, staff clocking in and out and more.

We don't use AMC's internet for anything including our live stream.  We have our own internet service so we were able to meet on Sunday.  Hopefully, they'll have it fixed any time now so their movie customers can return to the theater but we'll be open this Sunday either way!
