20th Anniversary (1998)

After 20 years, the Dude — “or his Dudeness, or Duder, or El Duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing” — is back on the big screen at AMC.

The Coen brothers' irreverent, quotable cult hit, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, is a hilariously quirky comedy-thriller starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and Julianne Moore.

Jeff "the Dude" Lebowski doesn't want any drama in his life — heck, he can't even be bothered with a job. But he must embark on a quest with his bowling buddies after his rug is destroyed in a twisted case of mistaken identity.

Slip on a cozy sweater, gather up your friends and head to AMC for THE BIG LEBOWSKI, playing August 5 and 8.

30th Anniversary (1988)

Twelve terrorists. One cop. The odds are against John McClane ... and that's just the way he likes it.

You may watch DIE HARD every holiday season, but you haven’t seen the “Christmas classic” (we’re staying out of that debate) on the big screen in 30 years — maybe ever.

John McClane (Bruce Willis), officer of the NYPD, tries to save his wife, Holly Gennaro (Bonnie Bedelia), and several others that were taken hostage by German terrorist Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) during a Christmas party at the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles.

Come out to AMC for DIE HARD on November 11 and 14. We’ll get together, have a few laughs.

But the pressure of living as an adult begins to overwhelm him, and he longs to return to his simple, former life as a young teenager.

Bring out your inner kid this summer. Get your tickets to BIG July 15 or 18 at AMC.

50th Anniversary (1968)

Join AMC and celebrate the golden anniversary of THE PRODUCERS, a satirical comedy written and directed by Mel Brooks.

Theatrical producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) has fallen on hard times. In an attempt to acquire some money, Max and his nervous accountant (Gene Wilder) conspire to select the worst play, the worst playwright, the worst director and the worst actor to collaborate on a guaranteed flop, entitling them to keep the investors' excess money.

Roger Ebert called the film “one of the funniest movies ever made.” Don’t miss THE PRODUCERS on the big screen June 3 or 6 at AMC.

Roger Ebert called the film “one of the two or three best films Hitchcock ever made.” See VERTIGO at AMC March 18 or 21.
