The AMC Empire 25 movie theater complex in the Times Square area shut its doors Tuesday [Aug 17] night to deal with a bed bug problem.
AMC said it has been testing and treating its theaters after getting complaints from some patrons about bed beg bites.
The company said it inspected the Empire 25 Tuesday and found bed bugs in an auditorium that had previously tested negative.
AMC shut down the complex, located on West 42nd Street, and began treatment, said Justin Scott, a spokesman for AMC.
Meanwhile, the EPA keeps a remedy from being used.
