The pandemic has ground many industries and sources of entertainment to a halt, and that includes movie theaters. If you’ve been missing the smell of buttered popcorn and action-packed flicks, your choice to return to the theater has arrived.

AMC Theatres is now allowing private rentals for up to a group of 20 people, and it won’t break the bank. Starting at $99, guests can select their movie, location and add-ons such as food, drink, microphone rental and additional time to gain access to the auditorium through the AMC website. While the specific movie and extras can add up, it’s more than doable to host your own private showing on a budget.

When you select your movie, the site will show the cost for the film, which can range from $99 to $349 plus tax. Currently, AMC is hosting some classics that include Monsters Inc., Jurassic Park and The Nightmare Before Christmas in addition to newer films like The War on Grandpa. Newer films will cost more than an old fave.

All you have to do is fill out the Events Inquiry Form, wait a few days to be contacted, then head to the theater to enjoy your AMC Safe & Clean auditorium.
