Universal Pictures and AMC Theatres today announced that, on October 26th, up to 10,000 free tickets will be presented to U.S. veterans and active-duty servicemembers for DreamWorks Pictures’ “Thank You for Your Service” — at more than 400 AMC locations nationwide. Each of the first 25 servicemembers (per location) with valid, government-issued military ID who request a ticket will be given one free admission to the 7:00 p.m. preview screening.
From the writer of “American Sniper” and the studio that brought you “Lone Survivor,” the film follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield. “Thank You For Your Service” arrives in theatres nationwide on October 27th.
The promotion will be available at all AMC Theatres playing “Thank You For Your Service.” Free tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and may only be picked up at the AMC box office on October 26th. Each guest must present a valid government-issued military ID to receive their ticket, with a limit of one free ticket for each military ID presented, while supplies last. This offer is valid for the 7:00 p.m. showing of the film on October 26th, only.
“Once we began a discussion with AMC about how we could embody the spirit and message of ‘Thank You for Your Service,’ they stepped up to the plate in a major way,” said Jim Orr, Executive Vice President, General Sales Manager, Universal Pictures. “We are honored that up to 10,000 U.S. veterans and active servicemembers will be among the first to experience this riveting film from our partners at DreamWorks.”
“’Thank You for Your Service’ reminds us all of the tremendous sacrifice made by America’s servicemembers and their families,” said Elizabeth Frank, EVP Worldwide Programming and Chief Content Officer, AMC Theatres. “AMC is pleased to partner with Universal Pictures to offer veterans and active servicemembers the opportunity to attend this preview screening at no charge.”
