Amc Movie Theaters

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    how do you know if an amc movie theatre gold tickets are real?
    how do you find out if an amc movie theater gold ticket real?
    is there a way where u can find out if it's real on the ticket or on the back of the ticket or what?
    how would you know if it's real?
    some1 please help me on this because some amc theater took it and some don't.

    • ANSWER:
      The cashiers know because if you flip the gold ticket over and scratch a seemingly empty space near the bottom right corner (?), a little amc should pop up. But I wouldn't scratch that off at home, because that could void the ticket...

      I would say to just give it to the cashier and see if he or she takes it or not. Some cashiers are strict about this, while some don't check.

  3. QUESTION:
    How long will it take for a call from AMC movie theater for job..?
    Hi, i recently applied for a job at an AMC movie Theater, and id like to know how long does it take for them to respond to my resume. I applied on Sunday September 28 ,and im very anxious to get working. I'm 14 years old if that has anything to do with it. Any suggestions to ease my nerves will be highly appreciated. :-)

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not familiar with the AMC hiring process. But -- when I applied at Regal about a year and a half ago -- they asked if I could close and I said yes. Right after I said that, they hired me on the spot.

      You should go to the same theater in person and ask them if they could take your application into consideration (ask the hiring manager). Then tell them your priorities.

      It's almost the Christmas season. They, usually, start hiring around the end of October or around the beginning of November (job-wise).

      Good luck! :)

  7. QUESTION:
    How long should i wait before i call about my job application?
    So I applied to 2 places. AMC movie theaters and pump it up. I applied online at AMC movie theaters last Friday and I applied at pump it up online today. How long should I wait to call them back about the job application.

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on what position you're applying to. If you're applying for a front line/customer service/part time type job, calling to check on the status of your application isn't likely to affect what the hiring manager thinks of you (if anything, it might annoy him/her, but probably not), so I would just skip it.

      If you're applying for a managerial/full-time position, a standard amount of time to wait would be about two weeks.

      Hope this helps!

  8. QUESTION:
    What should I saying when calling a place I recently applied at?

    Thanks!
    Also, when do you think the best time to call is?

    • ANSWER:
      i wouldn't suggest calling them, they will call you if they are interested, but it might not hurt to call to check if the got the applications a couple of days after applying

    No one is going to answer the phone though. So it may be a bad idea.

    • ANSWER:
      Surely you must know some adult that can verify your integrity, perhaps an uncle or aunt or friend. If you would use your head I'll bet you can come up with somebody. First I think you would want to re-educate yourself and gain a bunch more knowledge of life. If young people would put themselves deep into any problem and think their way out that would increase ones value one hundred percent. Learn to think for yourself and quit depending on others to do them. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GET AHEAD IN LIFE SO YOU HAD BETTER BEGIN NOW!

    How do you open a movie theater?
    AMC is selling the movie theater in the town that I live in. I cannot express in words how interested I am in purchasing this property. I am in talks with AMC about going through with it. Anyway, assuming I get the property, how do I go about getting the movies, movie posters, and supplies to the theater? I am aware that I would need a film broker, but who? I would really appreciate answers from current theater owners/managers. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Today number of independent theatre owners is growing.

      This is because when done properly, theater business can be a lucrative source of income. Aside from the money you’ll be earning, you also get to enjoy catering to your own niche crowd that shares the same interest in the type of films you love.

      Cinema malls are grouped according to the type of movie they feature.

      Movie theaters that run mainstream films from big film companies and distributors coinciding with the release date are deemed as first-run theaters.

      Second run theaters on the other hand, as the name implies, feature movies that have already been shown in first run theaters. Ticket prices for theaters that fall under this category are much cheaper.

      Then there the Art House theater otherwise known as the repertory theater. This category typically features alternative art films, independent films, or second run classic films.

      If you are interested in opening your own movie theater, the first thing you should do is understand the nature of this type of business. There are several resources that can provide you with valuable startup information.

      Some suggested reading materials are as follows: (1) Encyclopedia of Exhibition authored by the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO). This group also maintains a website where pertinent and useful information about the industry is delineated. Examples of such are box office statistics, equipment suppliers, index of concessionaires, theater employment and more can be found. (2) The Movie Business Book by Jason Squire tackles a wide variety of topics and can be used as a reference handbook.

      Don’t worry about competing with the big players. Your selling point will come from your facility to cater to a niche crowd. Getting the rights to show first run movies can be a bit of a challenge, not to mention pricey! What sets independent theater owners apart is the specialty films they feature. You can choose to show films from a variety of genres or show art films, independent films etc. The key is to choose the type of movies that you are interested in and familiar with. But at the same time, you also need to meet the preference of your target market. These two steps should go hand in hand.

      As an independent theater owner, you can afford to be different and not conform to how the big players run their movie theaters. For example, you may replace the typical row seats found in theaters and use tables and chairs instead. This will give your patrons a cozier environment to enjoy the cinema.

      As a way to entice moviegoers, you can provide discounts to big groups of people. This is usually is the case when they gather for a corporate event or for a party. In ticket pricing, you may offer discount rates during off-peak hours and/or days. (Trivia: It is said that Tuesday is the slowest day of the week as far the movie business is concerned.) You can also offer discounts to students and senior citizens. Still another option is presenting your customers with movie passes that allows unlimited entrance.

  36. QUESTION:
    Can you go to AMC theaters to apply for a job?
    I'm 16yrs old, and I want a job at the AMC movie theater. Me and my friend are going up there to apply. I was wondering do they interview right there? Do you have to dress up? Or would it be okay to wear a polo, jeans and gymshoes? Can you tell them the job you dont want (like a cashier)?

    • ANSWER:
      You do the application through their website, actually...then they'll call you for an interview if they are interested. The site is at: http://www.amctheatres.com/careeropps/index.html

      If you get called for an interview, do dress up. Basically a 'business casual' sort of dress. You will not get an interview on the spot in person, so there's no advantage or point in going to get a paper application (if they even have them anymore, probably not) instead of applying online. The manager will call and schedule an interview time for you to come in. AMC Theaters does 'group interviews' for the most part. 6 or 8 people at a time. You usually go into a room, watch some videos...fill out whatever paperwork. They ask various questions, and you find out if you're hired or not. They have a very quick turnover...so they aren't too picky about who they hire in that sense.

      On the website, you can specify the specific job title that you do want. What type of job? Ushers have a very *nasty* job...I was one of them. Garbage everywhere, sweeping up buttered popcorn from a sticky floor. Gum on the seats, nasty stuff like condoms on the floor, occasionally places where people have thrown up on the seat. It's disgusting. I started off as an usher directly, in 1999. It has been a while...I later found out that you apparently have to train for all job duties at some point (cashier, concessions, etc.) Try to go for ticket booth...it's pretty much the best job they have there other than projection (which you need a lot of experience for).

    How do I clean a movie theater popcorn popper?
    I work at an AMC theater and one of my duties sometimes is cleaning the popcorn popper.

I know there's know way to know if the popper you use and the one I use are the same, but I doubt the differences will be too major, so if I encounter them, I can work around them.

  39. QUESTION:
    What time should you arrive at the movie theaters for midnight showing of HP: Half Blood Prince?
    I bought the tickets to the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince midnight showing, but when is the recommended time we should arrive at the movie theater? I'm predicting there are going to be a horde of people waiting in line really early and I want to get good seats in the theater. It's at a local mall; it's not that big but the movies tend to get pretty busy. What time should I arrive to avoid getting bad seats?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey as an employee at AMC i know what a mess Harry Potter is going to be. If its anything like Dark Knight, all the seats will sell out. Usually you will get the die hards that come in at 6 in the evening but the lines probably wont really start forming until after 9.

    What is the largest and most popular movie theatre in Orange County?
    If an actor were to make appearance for a movie at a movie theatre in Orange County, which would it be?

      The largest theaters would probably be at the Irvine Spectrum. Other possibilities are the AMC at Downtown Disney or at the Block at Orange.

    Thanks to all that answers! =D

    • ANSWER:
      AMC got almost 5 applications for every open job. They did not call back most of the applicants. That is discouraging because you want to know. So you need to keep applying at other jobs and never look back.
      When you call AMC, say that you don't want to accept another job if you are still in the running for an AMC job. Would they please tell you if all the jobs have been filled.
      But you can't count on them to tell you the complete truth. They are worried that , if they offend you, you won't attend that theater any more..
