AMC Theaters said Monday that global admissions revenues for the period of June 9-12 were 15% higher than the same time frame in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic bit into theater attendance.
The company said more than 4.9 million guests watched a movie at an AMC location from Thursday to Sunday.
Theater attendance was boosted by the opening of “Jurassic World Dominion,” the latest release in the dinosaur franchise, as well as “Top Gun: Maverick,” a sequel to 1986’s “Top Gun,” AMC said.
Adam Aron, chairman and chief executive of AMC Entertainment Holdings
said, “it is so encouraging to see AMC’s admissions revenues topping those of the same weekend of 2019, prior to the pandemic which so depressed our revenues in 2020 and 2021. Clearly, we are seeing positive signs for a continuing recovery of the theatrical box office.”
