About AMC

What is AMC?

AMC Entertainment Holdings is a movie theatre chain known not only for its extensive global presence with over 1,000 theatres and 11,000 screens in 15 countries but also for its recent rise as a meme stock on Reddit.

Headquartered in Leawood, Kansas, AMC stock became a focal point for a group of investors on Reddit’s WallStreetBets forum. Its stock particularly has seen a significant surge in interest and price due to this group buying and promoting it heavily. AMC hit the mainstream headlines when Reddit investors forced a short squeeze, costing some institutions billions of dollars.

How does AMC make money?

AMC makes money primarily through operating its movie theatres. Its theatres generate revenue through various means, including ticket sales, food and beverage sales, and advertising.

These adverts, which often include previews of upcoming movies and commercials for other products and services, are purchased by businesses. The revenue is shared between AMC and the studios that produce the movies.

AMC’s biggest revenue earner is unsurprisingly, ticket sales. In 2021 the company generated $2.53 billion in revenue, and more than half that amount ($1.38 billion) came from the sale of tickets. Food and beverage amount to the majority of the remaining revenue.
