AMC Theatres Announces New Pricing Structure with Different Costs for Each Seat

AMC Theatres has announced a new pricing structure that will make each seat in the theater cost a different amount of money!

If you don’t mind sitting in the front row of the theater, you’ll be able to save a couple dollars each time you go to the movies in the future.

The new initiative is called “Sightline at AMC” and will kick off this weekend at select AMC locations in New York, Chicago, and Kansas City. AMC locations around the U.S. will get the new pricing structure by the end of the year.

So, how does it work?

AMC will offer three different seat-pricing options.

  • Standard Sightline – these seats are the most common in auditoriums and are available for the traditional cost of a ticket
  • Value Sightline – these seats are in the front row of the auditorium, as well as select ADA seats in each auditorium, and are available at a lower price than Standard Sightline seats. Value Sightline pricing is only available to AMC Stubs members, including the free tier membership, AMC Insider.
  • Preferred Sightline – these seats are typically in the middle of the auditorium and are priced at a slight premium to Standard Sightline seats. As an added benefit to AMC’s most loyal moviegoers, AMC Stubs A-List members may make reservations in the Preferred Sightline Section at no additional cost.

Tickets for movies this weekend at the AMC Lincoln Square 13 in New York City show that “Value Sightline” seats will be sold at a $2 discount and “Preferred Sightline” seats will cost $2 extra.

Theatres that offer Sightline at AMC will provide a detailed seat map that clearly outlines each seating option during the ticket purchase process online, on the AMC app, and at the box office. Sightline at AMC is applied to all showtimes that begin after 4 p.m. at participating locations and is not applicable on Discount Tuesdays.

Just a couple weeks ago, Regal Cinemas announced a list of 50 movie theaters around the U.S. that would be closing.
