AMC Entertainment is presenting its first-ever "AMC Black Picture Showcase Celebrating Juneteenth" movie series, celebrating "classic, contemporary and culturally relevant, black-led films" at participating locations beginning June 18, 2021.

The event is to honor Juneteenth, the newly-minted Federal holiday, which celebrates the emancipation of African-Americans enslaved in the United States.

Movies in the series include 2016's Best Picture Moonlight, Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing from 1989, and Harriet from 2019, both Academy Award nominees. See the full line-up of movies below!

“This is a proud and historic moment for AMC, that could not have happened without the influence of our AfricanAmerican associates who used their voices to underscore the importance of honoring Juneteenth as a bedrock of American history,” said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Theatres, “This opportunity is a celebration of the impact and accomplishments of African Americans in cinema. It is nothing less than a privilege for AMC to showcase their extraordinary talent.”
