Good points, Paul.

Will China actually pay taxes to the US on these theaters, when we owe them $1.2T? Well, they probably will pay because the private Dalian Wanda Group is not the Chinese Govt. in theory. As the poster above says, this could really be the Carlyle Group or who knows what other organization. The other point you mentioned is eliminating the competition of other midsize theater owners, the same way that the independent gasoline stations went the way of the dinosaur.
