Movies have the power to take your students back in time, transport them to a distant planet, or inspire their imaginations. For a unique and memorable way to connect with your students, schedule a school field trip to an AMC theatre. Choose from AMC’s calendar of films or select from a catalog of educational IMAX films, available year-round.
