AMC cuts ticket price for morning movies to $5 on some days


AMC cuts ticket price for morning movies to $5 on some days

AMC Theatres has lowered the price of a movie ticket to $5 for shows before noon on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays in the Valley.

The Kansas City, Mo.-based company said it plans to add more morning movie times to its seven theaters in the Valley, as part of today's rollout of A.M.Cinema. Previously, Phoenix moviegoers paid $7, the matinee price, to see morning shows. The new rate applies to adults, seniors and children.

In some cases, AMC's new rate undercuts the morning movie price at Scottsdale-based Harkins Theatres, which charges adults $4.50 to $7.50, depending on the location, for all movies before 6 p.m.

AMC first tested A.M.Cinema in three markets before extending it to 300 theaters nationwide.

I don't have a preference as long as they don't stick you in that one really small theater that has 15 seats. I HATE THAT!!!

I used to work at Harkins Centerpoint on Mill Avenue, before multiplexes were the big thing.

Harkins isn't the greatest. Although it is usually better than AMF.

Is the new multiplex off of the 202 & Dobson AMF or Harkins?

Where to begin...

The seats at Harkins actually recline instead of the god awful ones at AMC.

The concession stand is better with larger options. It's also cheaper with options like a large warm tollhouse cookie for $1.50.

You can purchase a 32 OZ souvenier cup for $3 (filled of course). This cup can be refilled endlessly for 1 year for $1.

If you like popcorn you can get a Harkins t-shirt for $20 that gets you a free large popcorn all year long as well. The popcorn also has like 6 different kinds of seasoning that you can put on like cheese, caramel, garlic, ect...

Going to Harkins means more comfortable seating, better theaters (Cine Capri), cheaper concessions, and cheaper tickets.

Oh and Harkins doesn't insult you with 10 commercials before the film. There are like 3 tops.

Noted. There have been rumors that we'll get a full theater in Anthem, but I'm not sure if it is AMC or Harkins.

BTW I don't go to the Mills cause it is a madhouse.

I go to the Cine Capri almost exclusively unless I am catching a Midnight movie down at Centerpoint on Mill after a night of fun.

Commercials or trailers? I actually love the new trailers and could watch and extra 10 minutes of them. There are many times the trailers are better than the movie you are going to see.

Commercials. AMC plays more commercials than trailers before a movie. Count them.
