This is now owned/operated by AMC Theatres.

As of February 3, 2006, it is now the AMC Star Great Lakes Crossing. The founders of the Star chain, Barrie and Jim Loeks, sold their 50% stake in the chain to Loews Cineplex in 2002. In June of 2005, Loews agreed to a merger with AMC, with AMC becoming the parent company. The merger was completed on January 27, 2006, and on February 3, the Star Theatres came to be listed in the newspapers under the new combined name. This theatre became the AMC Star Great Lakes Crossing.

AMC enterred the Metro Detroit market about twenty years earlier, buying out the Nicholas George theatres. As is their custom, the theatres were renamed to reflect their parent. So, the name change comes as no real surprise. A few things will remain.

For now, the ticket stubs still bear the Loews logo. That may take a while to fix, since AMCs receipts are not the same size as Loews receipts. Also, they still have Loews cups and bags at the refreshment counter, and probably will until they run out. For now, Stars Theatres will continue to use Fandango as their online ticketing agent, while AMC will continue to use Movietickets.

com. I suspect that the division in online ticketing agents represents outstanding contracts (and perhaps even financial interests in the online companies) and will be unified when the contracts run out.
