AMC Theatres is offering moviegoers to see their favorite Black films for $5 during Black History Month.
According to USA Today, the movie chain, like last year, is running a promotion for people who want to see movies created and featuring Black filmmakers, writers, and actors through February.
“Black filmmakers and actors have given the world some of the most inspiring and captivating cinematic experiences, and that tradition has continued over the past few years with some amazing films that span multiple genres,” AMC said in a written statement.
The promotion will allow you to view four different releases, one each week, at one of 175 AMC movie theaters.
“Through the Black History Month $5 Fan Faves program, AMC Theatres is honoring those ongoing contributions by giving moviegoers the opportunity to revisit a curated selection of recent beloved films starring or created by exceptional Black film producers and actors, including Denzel Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Shameik Moore and Daveed Diggs.”
The films specifically selected by AMC Theatres this year are:
