LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 14, 2019--AMC Theatres® (NYSE:AMC), the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States and the world, today announced its intentions to greatly expand guests’ ability to skip the line at the concessions counter by ordering ahead online and through the AMC Theatres mobile app. Food & beverage mobile ordering is now available at all AMC locations in Boston, Denver and Houston, with more markets expected to be added throughout 2019.

Between these three markets and the AMC locations where guests are already enjoying mobile ordering, AMC anticipates nearly 150 AMC and AMC DINE-IN locations will offer the Food & Beverage mobile order option by the end of this summer.

AMC’s mobile order option is a perfect complement to the scores of moviegoers who are buying their tickets online and on their AMC mobile app. With just a few extra clicks, guests can add popcorn, drinks and their favorite AMC snacks to their ticket purchase. The food is prepared fresh and is ready at a designated time, allowing guests to get to the theatre and pick up their snacks at the Express Pick-Up kiosk located near concessions or, in select locations, have the food delivered right to their seat, skipping the concession line entirely.

“We are routinely seeing some 45 percent of all AMC ticket purchases processed online, and the mobile order option is another way we’re making a trip to the movies more convenient for guests,” said Tonya Mangels, Vice President, Product Marketing, AMC. “Now guests who are already breezing past the box office with their mobile ticket purchase can go straight to the express pick-up kiosk to grab their mobile-ordered food or have it delivered to their reserved seat, depending on the location.”

For a limited time, guests who use the Food & Beverage mobile order option online or on their AMC Theatres mobile app can save up to $5 off of their food and drink purchase by utilizing exclusive mobile special offers.
