Second Valley woman reports bedbugs at same AMC theater

Another woman claiming she too was bitten by bedbugs at AMC Westgate 20 movie theater in Glendale.

GLENDALE, Ariz- A second Valley woman says she was bitten at least 14 times by bed bugs at the same AMC theater another woman reported about earlier this week.

Marisol Delgado says she went to AMC Westgate 20 Oct. 2 to watch a movie with her husband. However, when she got home she found her lower back full of bumps and rashes.

Delgado immediately called the theater and then filed a complaint with management. To her surprise, AMC responded with two movie passes, but after what’s happened, she said she has no intentions to go back.

Earlier this week, Crystal Roze Mitchel posted on Facebook pictures of what she says are bed bugs on a chair at the same AMC theater in Glendale.

Less than two days after that post, the movie company’s representative said the hall had been treated for bedbugs and reopened.
