Let’s be frank here—the Universal Pictures film Get Out, directed by Jordan Peele, snatched each and every last one of our wigs and exposed our edges when we watched it in theaters last year. One of my favorite movie reviews were from our senior film editor Leo Faierman who gave a thoughtful and academic perspective on his critique. However, for me—Get Out was one of those films that just stuck with me long after the movie ended.
For anyone out there who has not yet experienced Get Out or for the rest of us who want to see this movie again, Universal Pictures are offering fans and moviegoers an opportunity to see the movie again in theaters.
Starting on Presidents’ Day, February 19, at 55 AMC locations nationwide, each guest who requests a ticket the day of the screening—at a participating location—will be given one free admission to the 7:00 p.m. showing, up to theatre capacity.
A compilation video was also released that showcases the artwork inspired by Get Out—featuring the hashtag #GetOutOneYearLater—to encourage audiences to share more of their artwork, experiences, and discussions that were influenced by the movie.
The promotion will be available at each of the 55 AMC Theatres playing the special screening of Get Out at 7:00 p.m. on February 19. Free tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and may only be picked up at the AMC box office that day. Each guest must present a valid ID to receive their ticket, with a limit of one free ticket for each ID presented, while supplies last. This offer is valid for the 7:00 p.m. showing of the film on February 19, only.
