Ryan Noonan, AMC Theatres director of corporate communications, said the closure was the result of a "networking error."

Noonan Tuesday afternoon said the problem was being resolved. He said he expected operations would be back to normal Tuesday evening or by Wednesday morning, at the latest.

Noonan said people who had purchased movie tickets online were automatically issued refunds.

Although he was unable to provide specific technical information on what caused the network error, he said the problem is "very infrequent."
