“The acquisition of MJR fits perfectly into our expansion strategy,” Chief Executive Eddy Duquenne said.

Privately held MJR, which delivered revenue of $81.2 million for 2018, will continue to be managed under the existing brand name and by current management.

The transaction for the Michigan-based company, which operates 10 movie theater complexes, includes a corporation tax value of over $13 million and is expected to close before the end of October.
