If AMC Theatres do not accept passes for a movie, the company places a "No Passes" or "Special Engagement" notice next to the film title both on the AMCTheatres.com website and on the showtimes display at the local movie theater box office. AMC typically applies the "No Passes" restriction to the first two weeks of a film's theatrical release. For certain films, studio contracts may ban passes for an extended period beyond two weeks.
The "No Passes" and "Special Engagement" restriction applies to all passes, coupons, discount tickets and promotional offers that specifically state "Not valid for special engagements."
AMC Silver Experience tickets cannot be used for special engagements, however, patrons may upgrade Silver Experience tickets at the box office for an additional surcharge.
AMC ReAdmit Passes, AMC GuestFirst Passes, AMC Guest Passes and AMC Gold Experience tickets are valid anytime, for any movie. However, AMC may apply a surcharge for special events and for enhanced movie experiences, such as RealD 3D, IMAX, and ETX films. Moviegoers may phone or visit their local theater box office and ask if surcharges apply to their showing.
AMC Theatre passes, coupons and discount tickets, as well as AMC Gold and Silver Experience tickets may also be used at Loews, Cineplex Odeon, Magic Johnson and Star theatres in the United States.
