Fair use rationale for Image:NAI.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:NAI.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

About the relationship between National Amusements, CBS Corporation, & Viacom...[edit]

If I understand it correctly, then technically, CBS Corporation & Viacom aren't actually subsidiaries of National Amusements, as it isn't National Amusements that owns them, but Sumner Redstone, the head of National Amusements, that owns them. So, if the two aren't actual subsidiaries of National Amusements, then how else could their relationship with National Amusements be described? 24.12.89.226 (talk) 01:11, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Sale to Rave Motion Pictures[edit]

The list of sold theaters in this article needs to be verified. There are a few Cincinnati area theaters listed, that according to Cincinnati Business Courier, are not part of the deal.--Janus657 (talk) 17:12, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

The Rave web site at [1] has been updated to include former National Amusements theaters. Steelbeard1 (talk) 03:40, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
I commented out some Cincinnati-area theaters to only leave the Western Hills, Milford, and Kings Island theaters in Cincinnati. rhyre (talk) 21:20, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
Corrected the listing for the Manchester, CT Showcase Cinemas (which is actually a Cinema De Lux)

Concerning National Amusements's relationship with CBS Corporation & Viacom...[edit]

Where does it state that National Amusements bought a controlling stake in CBS Corporation & Viacom? ?? IT DOESN'T, because it wasn't National Amusements that bought it, it was Sumner Redstone that bought it. Sumner Redstone was the one who bought control of CBS Corporation & Viacom. And, it IS the same situation as Shaw Communications & Corus Entertainment, as National Amusements, CBS Corporation, & Viacom are all controlled by Sumner Redstone, but CBS Corporation & Viacom are independent of National Amusements. Or, do we need to get an administrator in here to clear up the situation between National Amusements, CBS, & Viacom? 76.235.248.47 (talk) 04:57, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Hoover's says quite clearly that NA controls 80% of Viacom and CBS, and it is deeply well known that NA is pretty much used as the means Redstone keeps control of the companies. Discussion is ended, and do not revert again. Nate (chatter) 05:43, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

General Description[edit]

Just a thought, but is it really accurate to describe National Amusements primarily as a "theater company" in the opening sentence when they own Viacom and CBS Corps and their theater chain is a very small fraction of their net worth or employee base at this point? They're the parent company to and majority owner of two enormous multinational multimedia conglomerates. They also own a major theater chain. Seems a bit silly to me that the opening paragraph describes only the latter. Just a thought. Beansy (talk) 18:55, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
