Tickets for "Ghostbusters" and other bring-back titles at AMC River East will be $5 for a limited time beginning August 20

AMC Theaters will sell tickets for 15 cents (plus sales tax) at more than 100 locations scheduled to reopen on August 20. Offering “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices,” the cinema is promoting the deal as part of its 100th birthday celebration.

AMC Entertainment began as a single movie screen operated by the Dubinsky Brothers in in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1920. Over the next century, it would grow into “the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States … and in the world,” according to a press release.

A message on the AMC River East website indicates that the Streeterville location at 322 E. Illinois will be among the theaters reopening on the 20th and advises visitors to “check back for further details.” 

Bring-back movies for $5

After August 20, several bring-back movies will be priced at only $5. Among them: Black Panther, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Grease, Star Wars: Episode V - the Empire Strikes Back, and the special Inception 10th anniversary event.
