Tampa, FL: AMC Classic Centro Ybor 10 Closed

The AMC Classic Centro Ybor 10 in Tampa, Florida closed earlier this month.

Located in the Centro Ybor shopping, dining, and entertainment center near 8th Avenue and 16th Street, the movie theater opened in 2000 as the Muvico Majestic 20 Theaters. Carmike Cinemas purchased it (and all nine Muvico locations around the country) in 2013. Half of its screens went dark in 2016. It became the AMC Classic Centro Ybor 10 in February 2017 after AMC acquired Carmike Cinemas.

Some of the news articles (see list below) seem to point the finger at the changing marketplace for how people watch movies (smartphones as villains). While that may be the case to some extent, there are plenty of examples of successful and thriving movie theaters, so this would appear to us to be an instance where the theater is not able and/or willing to compete in a challenging marketplace.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Tampa Theatre and the CMX CineBistro at Hyde Park Village. AMC, of course, would like you to visit the AMC West Shore 14, AMC The Regency 20, or the AMC Veterans 24, which is especially good advice if you happen to have AMC gift cards to spend.
