Through his passionate commitment to and tireless fight for civil rights, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. changed America’s history and hearts. In the 1950s, he became a nationally recognized activist leader and inspirational proponent of nonviolent protest, and he will forever be remembered as a visionary and hero.
Join AMC in honoring his incredible life with a showing of the Oscar®-nominated documentary KING: A FILMED RECORD…MONTGOMERY TO MEMPHIS. The film will play at 100 AMC theatres nationwide at 6pm local time on April 4, the 51st anniversary of Dr. King’s passing. Tickets are free at the box office of participating locations; you can also reserve yours in advance.
This screening is a rare opportunity to see the 1970 documentary from Kino Lorber and Gathr Films, a historic filmed record of Dr. King’s legacy during his lifetime.
In addition, AMC, through the AMC Cares Foundation, will be financially supporting the important work of The King Center. This support will enable approximately 1,000 students to participate in the Students with King program, which provides students in grades 1–12 the opportunity to learn more about Dr. King and his wife, Coretta Scott King, as leaders of the nonviolent civil rights movement. Hear more about the Center and program from Dr. Bernice A King, CEO of The King Center and daughter of Dr. King.
Make sure you attend this important, one-night-only event.
