LOMBARD, ILLINOIS LEOPARDO COMPLETES AMC YORKTOWN 18 RENOVATION Leopardo Companies Inc. has completed its 68,000-square-foot renovation of the AMC Yorktown 18 featuring AMC Red Kitchen in Lombard. The renovation was part of AMC Theatres' strategy to enhance the overall movie-going experi- ence by updating several theater locations throughout its circuit. Leopardo has com- pleted projects for the company at several locations across the country, including the AMC 600 N. Michigan 9 in Chicago. The AMC Yorktown 18 renovation consisted of the demolition and renovation of au- ditoriums, lobby and restrooms, as well as box office, guest services and conces- sion areas. The auditoriums were also up- graded to include power reclining seats with tables to accommodate fast-casual dining. The renovation also included the build-out of an AMC Red Kitchen, one of only two AMC locations in the United States to feature the dining concept. The concept allows guests to enjoy a meal dur- ing a movie from their power recliner. MacGuffins, a bar and lounge that serves specialty cocktails, beer and wine, was also added during the renovation. Leopardo served as general contractor and worked in collaboration with owner's representa- tive Jones Lang LaSalle and BRR Archi- tecture to complete the project.
