AMC ups Thyer to int’l VP

Eighteen-year AMC veteran Gary S. Thyer has been promoted to vice president and managing director of international operations for AMC Entertainment Intl.

He continues reporting to American Multi-Cinema president Philip Singleton, who credited Thyer with “jump-starting AMC’s entry into Japan and Portugal.”

So far, those are the only two overseas territories where AMC has built theaters.

However, the company recently announced a joint venture with Planet Hollywood, which will likely involve the building of a number of new international megaplexes.

Thyer joined AMC in 1979 as a manager at the circuit’s Ogden 6 theaters in Chicago. In 1995 he was promoted to managing director of AMC’s international operations.
