September 13, 2005

KANSAS CITY, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 13, 2005--In an effort to help the tens of thousands of Americans who were devastated by Hurricane Katrina, AMC Theatres will donate all proceeds from concession and movie ticket sales on Thursday, September 15, 2005, to the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. All 207 AMC theatres throughout the U.S. will be participating in this day as part of AMC's "Movie Day" contributing to hurricane relief efforts.

"The AMC family extends our hearts and prayers to those who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina," said Peter C. Brown, AMC Chairman & CEO. "Thanks to the cooperation and support of our studio and food and beverage partners we are able to make this day possible with hopes that the resulting contribution will help aid in the recovery of the people in the Gulf Coast region."

Our operations in New Orleans and surrounding areas consist of five theatres with 68 screens. Currently, two of the five theatres have reopened with limited schedules with three locations remaining closed.

In addition to AMC's "Movie Day," AMC Theatres established "AMC Cares," a relief fund that will help AMC associates provide a source of timely, compassionate financial help to other AMC associates who are experiencing loss due to Hurricane Katrina as well as future disastrous or catastrophic events.
