AMC theatres are having free screenings of Get Out on Presidents' Day

Get Out Daniel Kaluuya Jordan Peele

February 24th marks the one year anniversary of the release of writer/director Jordan Peele's film GET OUT, a movie that was a box office hit (it made $255 million worldwide on a budget under $5 million) and was well received not only by critics and horror fans (our own Chris Bumbray gave it an 8/10 review), but also by members of the Academy. At next month's Oscars ceremony, GET OUT will be up for four awards - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actor (Daniel Kaluuya).

To celebrate the anniversary of the film, Jordan Peele and Universal Pictures are offering fans free tickets to special screenings at 55 AMC theatres around the United States.

These screenings are scheduled to be held at 7pm on February 19th, President's Day. Each guest (with a valid ID) who requests a ticket on the day of the screening will be given one free admission, up to theatre capacity. To find participating AMCs, check GetOutOneYearLater.com.

Jim Orr, President of Distribution at Universal, had this to say about the special screenings: 

When Jordan approached us about a way to thank fans one year after the release of Get Out, we thought a Presidents’ Day screening during Black History Month would be a wonderful way to commemorate the film’s impact. The success of his stunning vision would not have been possible without the audience’s passion for both Get Out’s groundbreaking storytelling and its deft use of art as society’s mirror."

The filmmaker and studio are also celebrating the fact that GET OUT has inspired many artists to create their own interpretations of the ideas and imagery in the film. Fans are encouraged to share more of their artwork, experiences, and discussions influenced by the movie using the hashtag #GetOutOneYearLater
