AMC Theatres® Posts Its Best Admissions-Revenue Week in the Company’s 103 Year History, July 21-27, and the “Barbenheimer” Phenomenon Continues for a Second Straight Weekend
AMC’s “best week ever” based on admissions revenue from July 21 through July 27 sets a new AMC record for its theatres in the U.S. and also sets a new record for all its theatres globally
The record week was bolstered by 65 U.S. AMC locations individually also recording their highest-ever box office weeks of all time, including an impressive 13 theatre locations in the Los Angeles market
AMC’s most recent weekend, Thursday, July 27 through Sunday, July 30, was the Company’s third busiest weekend globally since reopening in 2020, driven by strong holdovers from BARBIE and OPPENHEIMER, as well as the opening of HAUNTED MANSION and the continued success of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING PART ONE and SOUND OF FREEDOM
Admissions revenue this weekend saw considerably more than double the admissions revenues of the same weekend a year ago
AMC Theatres® (NYSE:AMC & APE), the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States and the world, today announced it achieved its highest single-week admissions revenue in the Company’s entire 103-year history, during the Friday-Thursday film week, July 21-July 27. It was an admissions-revenue record for AMC’s U.S. locations, as well as for all its theatres globally.
AMC’s single-week admissions revenue record was driven primarily by the opening performances of BARBIE and OPPENHEIMER, which continued with their strong moviegoer demand throughout their first full week of release. Last weekend, July 20-23, was AMC’s busiest weekend since reopening theatres after their pandemic closures in 2020. Admissions revenues for the full week were not only the best since reopening, they also were the highest recorded admissions revenue for AMC in 103 years.
The momentum for both movies stayed strong in their second weekend. During this past weekend, July 27-30, BARBIE and OPPENHIEMER, along with the opening of HAUNTED MANSION and the continued success of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - DEAD RECKONING PART ONE and SOUND OF FREEDOM gave AMC its third busiest weekend globally since theatres reopened from their pandemic closures in 2020. Admissions revenue was considerably more than double the admissions revenue for the same weekend last year.
As part of AMC’s single-week admissions revenue record, 65 U.S. AMC locations set their own new single-week box office records. This includes 13 AMC locations in the greater Los Angeles market. Below is a full list of locations that set their single-week box office records.
Regarding the record-setting week, AMC Chairman and CEO, Adam Aron commented: “The monumental success of BARBIE and OPPENHEIMER has the entire movie and movie theatre industry abuzz, with discussions of new records and new benchmarks being realized seemingly wherever you turn. These two movies, along with the many others playing on our huge silver screens, continue to rewrite what is possible at the box office. At AMC, we are thrilled to add our own new all-time records into that conversation. Achieving the most admissions revenue in a single week in AMC’s storied 103-year history is a testament to the moviegoing audience, who has demonstrated once again that they are ready, willing, and eager to come out to movie theatres in huge numbers. Thank you to our guests for choosing AMC Theatres in the U.S. and ODEON Cinemas abroad.”
Aron continued, “Our appreciation extends to so many of our friends in Hollywood for releasing all the many hit movies that have graced our theatres, especially over the past few months. The gratitude we feel for studios, film makers, cast and crew is heartfelt and genuine. Their creativity and determination to entertain, enlighten, inform and amuse audiences, combined with our industry’s commitment to operate first class theatres, is why in our opinion moviegoing, in theatres, will play a central role in the cultural fabric the world over for decades and decades to come.”
