Mounds Mall Theater Equipment Sparks Lawsuit
A dispute over nearly $1.2 million worth of movie theater equipment has been taken to court in Madison County. Our partners at The Herald Bulletin report Anderson Mounds Theater filed the lawsuit against Holliday Inc. and new Mounds Mall owner Mark Squillante in Madison Circuit Court for possession of concession stand products and other items of value.
According to the publication, the lawsuit was filed by local attorney Jonathon Cook and states that the Anderson Mounds Theater is the rightful owner of the property and therefore has the right to immediate possession of the equipment. The complaint claims the property is owned by Anderson Mounds Theater, which is owned by the Cook family.
Cook filed a replevin complaint, which allows seized goods to be "provisionally restored to their owner pending the outcome of an action to determine the rights of the parties concerned."
The claim also states that Holliday Inc. is exerting unauthorized control over the property and refuses to return the property.
Holliday Inc. attorney Evan Broderick told the newspaper that an attempt to negotiate a resolution involving the personal and real property is scheduled.
Included in the lawsuit on the list of equipment are projectors, sound system, theater screens, seats, popcorn poppers, unopened popcorn, pretzels, hot dogs and as well as the digital sign along Scatterfield Road, movie posters, safes, office equipment and other items.
