Show goes on while Schimenti Construction renovates AMC


Ridgefield, Conn. - Moviegoers are still enjoying the big-screen entertainment at the AMC Theaters in Levittown, New York, even as Schimenti Construction is renovating the ten-theater complex. The company’s first project with AMC, it will be completed in January 2015, in just 95 calendar days from start to finish.

The approximately 80,000-sq.-ft. project includes the renovation of all ten theaters, concessions, box office, cash room and four restrooms. Divided into three main phases, the work began with the construction of a temporary box office and concession stand, which Schimenti completed in two evenings.

“It is essential that the theater be operational throughout construction—as they say, the show must go on!” said project manager, Anthony Saoulidis. “Although we’ve discovered some challenging conditions that have added to the scope of the project, we’ve found ways to maintain the schedule and minimize disruption to AMC and its patrons.”

The AMC Theater is located at 3585 Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown. The project architect is B/R/R Architecture of Merriam, Kansas.
