AMC Theatres to Host Election Night Viewing Parties

You’ll be able to watch the drama of Election Night with popcorn, candy and dozens of like-minded strangers.

AMC Theatres and CNN will broadcast the Nov. 8 presidential election on the big screen at 50 theaters in 25 cities nationwide, including in two theaters in San Diego.

The event is free for members of AMC Stubs , a tiered perks program from the exhibitor chain, and their guests, AMC Theatres said Monday. Audience members can choose between "red" and "blue" locations, depending on party preference.

In San Diego County, you’ll head to AMC Mission Valley 20 if you’re part of the Democratic party and to AMC La Jolla 12 if you favor the Republican party.

Other cities with theaters taking part include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.

The broadcast, which will also include major national, state and local elections, will begin at 4 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.

This isn't the first time this election season that a theater company is getting in the politics game. Last week, Regal Cinemas hosted debate viewing parties in San Diego.
