AMC Dine-In Madison 6 is a movie theater in Madison, Wisconsin owned by AMC Theatres. Originally the first of the Sundance Cinemas in the United States,[1] the theater opened as the Sundance 608 on May 11, 2007.[2] The theater is located in the Hilldale Shopping Center, where it replaced the Hilldale Theater. The "608" was a reference to the telephone area code for the region.[3][4] Madison was selected as the first location for Sundance Cinemas because of the level of interest in independent film in the region.[1][5] Sundance Cinemas was purchased by Carmike Cinemas in 2015.[6] In 2016, Carmike was purchased by AMC Theatres,[7] who converted the theater to the AMC Dine-In brand the following year. [8]

AMC Dine-In Madison 6 contains six stadium-seated auditoriums, a cafe, and a MacGuffins rooftop bar.
