Clip's Picks will be available to guests seven days a week, all day.

"Clip's Picks allows moviegoers of all budgets the opportunity to enjoy some of their favorite movie snacks along with the experience of seeing a movie the way it was meant to be seen--on the big screen," said Phil Singleton, president and chief operating officer of AMC Theatres. "The introduction of Clip's Picks is part of AMC's commitment to deliver the best possible out-of-home entertainment experience, conveniently and affordably."

Clip's Picks, named after AMC's "film-strip" character, Clip®, was originally tested in 37 theatres in six markets including, Charlotte, Chicago, Columbus (Ohio), Denver, Jacksonville and Kansas City. Due to the popularity of the program, AMC has expanded Clip's Picks circuit-wide at more than 310 AMC theatres in the U.S. including AMC Loews theatres, AMC Star theatres, AMC Magic Johnson theatres and AMC Cineplex Odeon theatres.

What a lot of people do not know is that theaters have to have high prices on concessions. That is where theaters obtain the most profits and otherwise, ticket prices would be over the top and no one would go to the movies. The chain’s profits were roughly a 60-40 split, but the costs of getting films to show was eight times that of concessions, so concessions are actually more profitable.
