Universal Pictures and AMC Theatres today announced that on Oct. 26 up to 10,000 free tickets will be presented to U.S. veterans and active-duty service members for DreamWorks Pictures' Thank You for Your Service, at more than 400 AMC locations nationwide. Each of the first 25 service members (per location) with valid, government-issued ID who request a ticket will be given one free admission to the 7 p.m. preview screening. 

Thank You for Your Service 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. Opening on Oct. 27, the drama was written and directed by American Sniper writer Jason Hall. Miles Teller and Haley Bennett star.

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 Oct. 26. The offer is valid for the 7 p.m. showing of the film on Oct. 26 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 VP and general sales manager at Universal Pictures. "We are honored that up to 10,000 U.S. veterans and active service members 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 service members and their families," said Elizabeth Frank, executive VP, worldwide programming, and chief content officer at AMC Theatres. "AMC is pleased to partner with Universal Pictures to offer veterans and active service members the opportunity to attend this preview screening at no charge."
