AMC Summer Nights program to benefit Will Rogers and autism orgs

June 24, 2013

AMC Theatres launched the AMC Summer Nights program, which will offer some of the past year's biggest movies for just $3, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Will Rogers Institute, the Autism Society of America and Autism Speaks.

Starting June 24 and throughout this eight-week program, AMC guests can see the following hits for $3 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 10 p.m., at more than 200 AMC locations nationwide:
June 24-26: The Dark Knight Rises
July 1-3: Django Unchained
July 8-10: The Amazing Spider-Man
July 15-17: The Hunger Games
July 22-24: Olympus Has Fallen
July 29-31: Oz the Great and Powerful
August 5-7: G.I. Joe: Retaliation
August 12-14: Oblivion

"AMC Summer Nights combines three things moviegoers love: big movies on the big screen, community support, and exceptional value," said Elizabeth Frank, AMC’s executive VP and chief content and programming officer. "We have eight weeks of blockbusters lined up for our guests, so they can afford and enjoy extra moviegoing with their friends. Together, we anticipate raising significant funds for the Will Rogers Institute and our autism organization partners."

The Will Rogers Institute is a national organization committed to reducing disability and deaths causes by pulmonary illness through the funding of advanced medical research. The money AMC raises will fund cystic fibrosis research underway at Kansas City, Mo.-based Children's Mercy Hospital, in addition to other hospital grants.

AMC Summer Nights will also fund medical research through Autism Speaks and improve access to services and support through the Autism Society, expanding the company's commitment to helping people living with autism. AMC operates a monthly film series, AMC Sensory Friendly Films, in partnership with the Autism Society, and also administers AMC FOCUS, a program which provides individuals affected by disabilities with access to opportunities for competitive employment.
