AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc., the widely known movie theater chain and meme stock, has revealed plans to screen Beyoncé's "Renaissance World Tour" concert film. The production and management company behind Beyoncé, Parkwood Entertainment, along with AMC, announced that "Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé" will be shown in AMC theaters across the United States, Canada, and Mexico starting from December 1.
AMC CEO Adam Aron took to Twitter to express his excitement about the partnership, stating, "Parkwood Entertainment announced Sunday night that AMC Theatres Distribution will lead the effort in enabling RENAISSANCE: A FILM BY BEYONCÉ to take over movie theaters worldwide. This is such exciting news for AMC and for the world’s entire movie theatre industry."
Marcus Theatres, owned by Marcus Corp., also announced on Monday that they will be showcasing Beyoncé's concert film, further increasing its exposure. Both Marcus Theatres and AMC are capitalizing on the popularity of major concert films, with high-profile tours from music icons like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift. In fact, Taylor Swift's "Taylor Swift The Eras Tour" film is set to hit theaters on October 13, generating significant anticipation among fans.
AMC recently made headlines when it reported that Taylor Swift's concert film had broken the company's record for single-day advance ticket sales. The film generated an incredible $26 million in ticket revenue on August 31. Cinemark Holdings Inc., a rival of AMC, is also getting in on the action by offering Private Swiftie Parties, where fans can rent a private auditorium to watch "Taylor Swift The Eras Tour." The concert film trend continues to gain traction as audiences eagerly anticipate these cinematic experiences.
