AMC Offers Private Movie Theater Rentals Starting at $99
AMC makes a bet that some people are tired of watching movies on their couch. The country's largest cinema chain is now offering entire theaters to customers for just $ 99.
The so-called "Private Movie Showing" program enables up to 20 people to have a theater to themselves for a few hours. Customers can choose from a list of 34 films, including older releases such as Jurassic Park and newer films such as The New Mutants and Christopher Nolan's Tenant. Older movies start at $ 99 excluding tax and new movies start at $ 149.
However, it can get more expensive. Depending on the film selection and the location of the theater, hosting a private movie party can cost as much as $ 349, according to the AMC website. If you really want to stand trial, AMC will loan you a microphone that you can use to speak to your friends for $ 100.

A meal fee of USD 250 will be charged for customers who wish to bring their own groceries. However, AMC said foods that require a "heating element" will not be allowed. Customers also cannot bring food that the theater is already selling.
AMC is offering the new rental plan in most states, although locations like Hawaii and Alaska are not included. Prospective customers can register on the AMC website where they will be asked to select a movie, date and time.
The plan, first launched on Friday, comes less than a week after AMC warned it could run out of money by early 2021. AMC warned in a report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday, pointing to low attendance levels for theaters have managed to reopen major Hollywood movies amid the pandemic and drought to attract moviegoers to their venues.
AMC isn't the only chain trying the rental plan, either. Cinemark, the parent company of Century Theaters and CineArt, also offers private theater rentals starting at $ 99. The films include "Ghostbusters", "Grease" and "Coco". Cinemark has also limited rent to 20 people per theater.
