Alpena, MI: Sign for AMC Classic State 3 Coming Down

Posted on Monday, March 19th, 2018 8:39 PM

The large sign for the AMC Classic State 3 in Alpena, Michigan is being replaced with signage for parent company, AMC Entertainment, according to a recent article published by The Alpena News:

AMC, which owns and operates the Royal Knight and State theaters, is in the process of closing the Royal Knight and consolidating it with the State Theater. It also is going to rebrand the theater and remove the neon STATE sign from the top of the marquee and replace it with its own logo.

According to Alpena Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Anne Gentry the city granted the company permission to do so and mentioned at a DDA meeting shortly after it acquired the two theaters from Carmike last year. Now there are some in the community who don’t want to see the historical sign come down.

“From a downtown perspective it is one of the most iconic buildings, as is the marquee and we always try to keep those types of things in place,” Gentry said. “The company did compromise because it was considering talking down the entire marquee.”

Gentry said AMC will make improvements to the marquee and maintain it without the current wording on top and is allowing the community to keep it once it comes down.
