Free Tickets: Thank You for Your Service
Written by: Jen Johnson
Universal Pictures and AMC Theatres announced that, on October 26, up to 10,000 free tickets will be presented to U.S. veterans and active-duty servicemembers for DreamWorks Pictures’ Thank You for Your Service—at more than 400 AMC locations nationwide. Each of the first 25 servicemembers (per location) with valid, government-issued ID who request a ticket will be given one free admission to the 7:00 p.m. preview screening.
I have two brothers in the Army, so when I saw this announcement, it grabbed my attention, and I immediately checked to see what Kansas City theaters would be involved. There are several options, including the AMC Legends 14, the AMC Ward Parkway 14, the AMC Town Center 20, and many more. For more information and a list of AMC Theatres participating, you can check out www.ThankYouForYourService.com.
Thank You for Your Service follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield.
Starring an ensemble cast led by Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Joe Cole, Amy Schumer, Beulah Koale, Scott Haze, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Brad Beyer, Omar J. Dorsey and Jayson Warner Smith, the drama is based on the bestselling book by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author David Finkel.
Based on the title alone, I’m guessing I’ll need a full box of tissues, but hopefully it will also give me a better appreciation for my brothers, and ALL the men and women serving us. A wonderful title, but an even more important message, thank you for your service.
