Janek John Pawlik of Franklin has filed a civil lawsuit against theater chain AMC Entertainment over claims that its theaters lack appropriate handicap access, The Daily News Journal reports. According to Pawlik’s suit, theater entryways don’t have handicap buttons, which makes it difficult for people who use wheelchairs to enter or exit the building. The lawsuit names AMC locations in Spring Hill, Antioch, Murfreesboro and Nashville. Rebecca Williams of the Southeast ADA Center says that while there are other requirements for door size and weight, lacking power doors is not a violation under the ADA.
