AMC Screen Unseen events

I caught Next Goal Wins at their first one a few months back, but have missed a few since then.

Looks like the past ones were:
November 6: Next Goal Wins
November 27: American Fiction
December 11: Boys in the Boat
January 3: Book of Clarence
January 8: Origin


Next ones are:

January 29: An R rated horror film listed with a 1:30 run time.
February 5: A PG-13 rated horror film listed with a 1:45 run time.

Speculation:

January: No idea . . . I was thinking Imaginary, but it has been pushed to March and does not have rating and run time info yet.
February: Lisa Frankenstein (PG-13, 1:41 run time, February 9 release)

So we only get American Fiction as a secret screening? As an actual release I have to drive over an hour away.

I was thinking the same thing . . . it's playing in Peoria. I thought about driving up there, but I'm assuming it will get here in the next few weeks.

Waiting on this and Zone of Interest. Also, Anatomy of a Fall will be playing again next week in Peoria, but not here. I hate AMC in Springfield.

American Fiction is only playing in 850 theaters. Iím not surprised some smaller cities and theaters arenít getting it.

It's doubling the amount of theatres this weekend.

It's irritating. I've already seen every A-list eligible movie playing here this weekend. I caught Anatomy last fall in Normal, where it's playing again this weekend...not here of course. We get Barbie and Oppenheimer.

Well . . . we are getting a little off-topic, but I guess there is one advantage to having crappy AMCs here:

I had a private IMAX screening of Oppenheimer this afternoon. As I was leaving, there was a guy waiting by the door watching the credits. He was early for the Queen concert they are splitting the IMAX screen with, and he was about to get a private showing also.

I miss the AMC theater in Forsyth - spoiler is IL AMC foibles

Spoiler:

Not the actual theater, mind you. That place was an absolute hole. But whoever was selecting the movies for that theater always did a great job of bringing in small movies a couple of times a month that didn't really show up anywhere else around here. It was everything the Parkway Pointe should have been. Now, did anyone ever go to those movies? Certainly not any of the ones I drove over to watch, which were always private screenings or just about. I still remember when Jojo Rabbit was only there. I couldn't get over the first week it played, and the second week the only showtime was 10:00 PM Sunday night. (an aside...we did get in Springfield about six weeks later because of the Oscars, but I didn't know that then). So the weather is good enough I decide to do it, and it was a private screening of an improperly framed movie with the theater at about 85 degrees. At least the movie was really good.

Given the timing that might have been the last time I saw a movie there before Covid closed it for good. At the very least it was one of the last.

Rumor has it:

January 29 (tonight): Out of Darkness
February 5: Lisa Frankenstein

Re: AMC Screen Unseen events

I went to the Out of Darkness showing tonight. Trip was a complete bust. Fell asleep after 20 minutes. But I could tell this movie wasn’t for me. I can’t give it a fair opinion since I fell asleep, but I have no interest in watching it again.

yeah I saw the trailers. Looks like a faith-based movie. Hard pass. Even though it does have Jack Reacher.
