For the second quarter, AMC Entertainment Inc. posted a net loss of $ 9.7 million (60 cents a share), compared to a $ 1.4 million net loss (10 cents) for the same period last year.

The results include a $ 6.5 million extraordinary item due to a debt refinancing charge in the quarter.

Revenues for the quarter were down 11% to $ 100.7 million.

According to AMC president Edward Durwood, the lower revenues were the result of fewer screens, a shorter summer film season and the lack of a big hit like “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.”

AMC placed $ 200 million in new debt this summer in junk bonds.
