INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – AMC Showplace Traders Point 12 Movie Theatre reports they had bed bugs inside one of their theaters on 86th Street. Now some people are second guessing if they should head into a show.
As weve seen the last few years, bed bugs are an issue for several businesses throughout the country. Among all of our theatres in the Indianapolis market, there was a single theatre auditorium with a bed bug issue. At AMC, we take aggressive, proactive steps, including regular, routine inspections and inspections any time a bed bug is suspected. If any inspection comes back positive for bed bugs, the affected area is immediately treated by a third-party expert pest control company. Out of an abundance of caution and to assure the public of its safety, the auditorium in question is closed, is being retreated and will re-open after additional third-party expert inspections indicate there is no detectable pest presence.
