During Black History Month, AMC Theatres Offering $5 Tickets for Select Black Movies Like ‘Wakanda Forever’ and ‘Woman King’
If you haven’t gotten the chance to view some current Black movies that may be considered classics in the coming years, now is your chance!
According to Variety, in celebration of Black History Month through the end of February, AMC Theatres will be showing several Black movies throughout the month for only $5 per ticket.
“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,” said Elizabeth Frank, AMC’s executive VP of worldwide programming and chief content officer in a written statement.
The idea for the initiative was inspired by some employees who sit on AMC’s council on the African American Experience. The aim is to shine a spotlight and celebrate Black filmmakers and actors on the movie screen.
“This programming initiative, which perfectly aligns with AMC’s inclusive programming, originated from the Council on the AMC African American Experience, an internal group of associates that strengthens AMC’s culture by defining opportunities to embrace diversity, lead with fairness and impartiality, and create a more inclusive work environment.”
Movies that are included in this programming slate will be a different title every week in February.
Critically acclaimed films starring the likes of Viola Davis, Jonathan Majors, John Boyega, Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong’o, and Whoopi Goldberg.
The first film that can be seen for $5 during the first week of February will start on February 3rd and run until February 9th will be Till, which was directed by Chinonye Chukwu. From February 10th – February 16th the featured movie will be Devotion starring Jonathan Majors.
The Woman King featuring Viola Davis can be seen for a discounted price during the week of February 17th – February 23rd. And to close out the specially priced Black History Month pricing will be the Marvel hit film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which will run from February 24th – March 1st.
The above-listed movies will be available in more than 200 AMC Theatres across the country. To purchase tickets and showtimes for selected movies, you can head to the AMC Theatres website.
