AMC Theatres' revenue 2006-2018

In the company’s 2018 fiscal year, AMC Theatres reported annual revenues of over 5.4 billion U.S. dollars. The company has experienced strong revenue growth since its low point in 2012 – in that year, revenues were just 811 million dollars.

AMC Theatres

After a long period of decline, AMC Theatres was acquired by Dalian Wanda Group in 2012, a move which was followed by years of increased revenues and attendance. In 2018 the company reported a total attendance of nearly 360 million, a number which represents a massive turnaround in fortunes since reporting just 60 million in 2012. AMC operates over 11 thousand screens around the world, the vast majority of which are in the United States. Most of the company’s revenue is generated by the cost of theatre admission, but food and beverage sales have also remained a healthy revenue stream over the years.

Industry outlook

Despite growing competition from streaming platforms and home entertainment systems, theatre box office revenues have continued to increase in North America, generating nearly 12 billion dollars in 2018. Film fans from around the world have continued to value the unique experience offered by a theatre environment.
