AMC Theatres is celebrating its 100th anniversary by offering “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.” When the first wave of more than 100 AMC theatres reopens Aug. 20, moviegoers for one day only can purchase tickets for 15 cents (plus sales tax).
The world’s largest exhibitor has been shuttered since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
AMC currently expects to open approximately two-thirds of its more than 600 U.S. theater locations in time for the Sept. 3 release of Warner Bros.’ Tenet, following Disney’s Aug. 28 release of The New Mutants. The remainder of AMC’s U.S. theaters will open only after authorized to do so by state and local officials.
The one-day 15 cent ticketing celebration kicks off several promotions moviegoers will find as they return to screens. After the Aug. 20 promotion, titles such as the special Inception 10th anniversary event, as well as Black Panther, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Grease and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back will be priced at $5.
AMC is also offering an array of $5 food and beverage treats, including regular popcorn, regular Coca-Cola Freestyle drinks and KidsPacks, through the end of October. And all AMC Stubs members will earn double points on all ticket and food & drink purchases through the end of October.
“We are thrilled to once again open our doors to American moviegoers who are looking for an opportunity to get out of their houses and apartments and escape into the magic of the movies,” Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Theatres, said in a statement.
In addition to the throwback movie titles that start Aug. 20, moviegoers the day after will have access to new movie releases available at normal admission prices. They include:
- Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula
- Cut Throat City
- Words on Bathroom Walls
- Inception 10th anniversary event
- The New Mutants
- Personal History of David Copperfield
- The King’s Man
- War With Grandpa
