AMC Entertainment Holdings stock (NYSE: AMC) jumped in the early trading hours Monday following the announcement of the global distribution of Beyoncé’s highly-anticipated concert film, “Renaissance World Tour,” through its AMC Theatres chain.
The Beyoncé extravaganza is set to grace theaters in the United States, Canada, and Mexico on Friday, December 1, 2023. AMC Theatres, the American movie giant, is also hinting at upcoming announcements regarding additional global screenings, keeping fans eagerly on the edge of their seats.
The price of tickets for standard showtimes in the U.S. will begin at an affordable $22 plus tax, making it an accessible entertainment option for audiences nationwide. In addition, “Renaissance” will also grace the screens of other premium large format theaters.
