AMC Rolls Out Reserved Seating in NYC Theatres

AMC Theatres is now letting moviegoers reserve their seat at Manhattan AMC locations. Guests who purchase a ticket, either online or at the box office, can select their seat at the time of purchase, similar to nearly every other entertainment venue in the city.

AMC currently offers reserved seating in 125 locations nationwide, primarily in its renovated theatres that feature plush, power recliners, including AMC 84th St. and AMC Village 7, as well as several IMAX and Dolby Cinema at AMC auditoriums. Guest feedback about reserved seating at these locations has been overwhelmingly positive, and AMC decided to expand this amenity to all of its Manhattan locations. This marks the first major market where AMC offers reserved seating at all locations.

The AMC Empire 25 location in Times Square is on the list for reserved seating and is the busiest movie complex in the country.

“As we look at markets where we can begin to make reserved seating prevalent, there’s no better place to start than Manhattan, where a trip to the movies often means a subway or cab ride,” said John McDonald, executive vice president, U.S. Operations, AMC. “Reserved seating lets moviegoers pick the exact seat they want when they make their movie-going plans and provides our guests with the confidence that their specific seat will be waiting for them when they arrive at the theatre.”
