About National Amusements, Inc.

Media mogul Sumner Redstone put the business in show business through National Amusements. What began as a humble drive-in theater operation evolved into a powerhouse that controls just under 80% of media giants Viacom and CBS Corporation. Redstone, the controlling stockholder of National Amusements, is former chairman of Viacom and CBS Corporation. True to its roots, National Amusements also operates Showcase Cinemas, Multiplex Cinemas, and Cinema de Lux branded theaters -- more than 950 screens total -- in the US, the UK, and Latin America. National Amusements additionally operates IMAX theaters in the US and Argentina, and is a partner in online ticketing service Fandango.

Operations

In addition to standard cinema fare, several of National Amusements' theaters offer a variety of dining options, including in-theater dining featured through its SuperLux Dining, SuperLux LuxLite, and Lux Level brands; and full-service restaurants Studio 3 Restaurant and Chatters Bar & Grill. Some of its theaters serve alcoholic beverages and snacks from lobby bars. Others feature live sports broadcasting as well as live opera, stand-up comedy, and music.

Geographic Reach

National Amusements has theaters in five US states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Rhode Island. Internationally, it has theaters in Argentina, Brazil, and the UK. The company operates IMAX screens in Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Rhode Island in the US and in Buenos Aires.

Strategy

National Amusements is slowly making most of its theaters able to handle multiple formats such as 3D and IMAX films.

After years of speculation that the group's two major holdings -- CBS and Viacom -- will join forces, it appears the companies are indeed beginning merger talks. (The companies split from each other in 2006.)
