AMC Theatres® Rolls out Reserved Seating to NYC Locations

Company Release - 8/31/2016 6:11 PM ET

AMC Theatres to let NYC movie-lovers guarantee their specific seat at all Manhattan AMCs

LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AMC Theatres® (NYSE: AMC) is excited to announce moviegoers can now reserve their seat at Manhattan AMC locations. For movies beginning Friday, Sept. 2, guests who purchase a ticket, either online or at the box office, will select their seat at the time of purchase, similar to nearly every other entertainment venue in the city.

AMC currently offers reserved seating in 125 locations nationwide, primarily in its renovated theatres that feature plush, power recliners, including AMC 84th St. and AMC Village 7, as well as several IMAX® and Dolby Cinema® at AMC auditoriums. Guest feedback about reserved seating at these locations is overwhelmingly positive, and AMC is excited to expand this amenity to all of its Manhattan locations. This marks the first major market where AMC offers reserved seating at all locations.

“As we look at markets where we can begin to make reserved seating prevalent, there’s no better place to start than Manhattan, where a trip to the movies often means a subway or cab ride,” said John McDonald, executive vice president, U.S. Operations, AMC. “Reserved seating lets moviegoers pick the exact seat they want when they make their movie-going plans and provides our guests with the confidence that their specific seat will be waiting for them when they arrive at the theatre.”
