Why is AMC offering discounted tickets in February?
AMC Theatres announced the Black History Month deals in a press release on Feb. 1, 2023. The release stated, "Celebrate Black History Month with family and friends with a selection of films that will inspire and encourage discussion from fresh perspectives and iconic actors."
In addition to participating AMC Theatre locations offering $5 tickets to select films featuring Black actors, directors, and other professionals, on-demand options will be available. Four movies by acclaimed Black creators are featured in the chain's month-long special.
To get discounted $5 tickets for the four featured movies, go to the AMC website or Fandango to search for tickets during the appropriate dates. Each movie is only running for one week at the $5 price, so be sure to mark your calendars right away.
Here's a list of the movies that you can see for $5 at AMC Theatres.
AMC said, "This February, AMC Theatres is giving moviegoers the opportunity to revisit some of the most recent biographical dramas, military epics, and dramatic action movies created by or starring outstanding Black filmmakers and actors like Ryan Coogler, Jonathan Majors, Angela Bassett, and Viola Davis."
The four movies that will be available at certain times throughout February for $5 are the following:
- Till from Feb. 3 through Feb. 9
- Devotion from Feb. 10 through Feb. 16
- The Woman King from Feb. 17 through Feb. 23
- Black Panther: Wakanda Forever from Feb. 24 through March 2
As Variety explained, The Woman King is an action epic led by Viola Davis. Devotion is a war drama by Sony, and Till is a historical drama by director Chinonye Chukwu. It's based on the brutal killing of Emmitt Till in 1955. Finally, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a continuation of the Black Panther saga within the Marvel Avengers films.
Elizabeth Frank, AMC's executive vice president of worldwide programming and chief content officer, said, “AMC has a long-standing commitment and track record of inclusive programming and initiatives that highlight diverse, creative talent behind the camera and on the big screen.”
AMC has a Council on the African American experience, whose members originated the idea of featuring select films by Black creators during Black History Month.
AMC also offers these films to rent or buy on-demand.
Moviegoers can certainly take advantage of the chance to see the work of these Black creators on the big screen at their local AMC theatres. However, those who prefer to watch from the comfort of their own homes or on the go, AMC Theatres On Demand is an alternative.
AMC's on demand service enables you to rent or buy the films featured in the Black History Month deals now. Plus, using the on-demand option provides a much wider variety of Black-led films to enjoy. Films like Hidden Figures, King Richard, and Creed II are in the lineup of the Black History Month collection.
Categories of the on-demand films include Celebrating Black Voices, Directed by Black Filmmakers, Movies with a Black Lead, Inspiring True Stories, and Kids and Family.
