AMC Theatres Offering 15-Cent Tickets on Aug. 20 Reopening


This deal is sure to get two thumbs up from cinema lovers.

AMC Theatres is offering moviegoers 15-cent tickets when it reopens on Aug. 20, Associated Press reports.

Parent company AMC Entertainment announced the reduced pricing — a throwback to 1920 admission prices — on Thursday.

The company has dubbed the promotion “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.”

On Aug. 20, the chain plans to reopen doors to more than 100 AMC theaters, about a sixth of its locations nationwide.

The company plans to kick off reopening day by showing classic fan favorites “Ghostbusters,” “Black Panther,” “Back to the Future” and “Grease.”

These titles will continue to be screened afterwards at a $5 ticket price.

The move comes after repeated delays in the reopening. Originally planning a phased reopening on July 15 with intent to be fully operational July 24, the chain pushed the date back first to July 30, and then to “mid to late August.”

The postponement comes as studios continue to delay the release of their summer blockbusters.
