Published February 10, 2023 at 9:28 AM PST
Channing Tatum stands in a living room. He wears a white t-shirt with black long sleeves that are pushed up to his elbows. He raises the bottom of his shirt with his right hand, exposing his stomach and chest. The top of Tatum's black underwear can be seen peeking out from under his tan khaki shorts held up by a brown belt. Salma Hayek Pinault sits in a chair next to him. She wears a purple long sleeve. Her eyes are closed. Tatum uses his left hand to guide Hayek Pinault's hand over his torso. Tatum looks down at Hayek Pinault, watching her reaction. A wall of windows sits behind her showing luscious greenery outside.

What Does AMC’s New Tiered-Price System Mean For Frequent Moviegoers?

AMC New Price System 2.10.23

On Monday, the nation’s biggest movie theater chain said it is implementing the same kind of ticket pricing. Called Sightline, the program from the financially strapped AMC Theatres chain will offer three different prices based on seat location. AMC is introducing Sightline this week at some of its theaters in New York, Chicago and Kansas City, and said it will expand the tiered pricing plan nationwide by the end of the year.

The price of a standard seat won’t change, but moviegoers will pay less for sitting very close to the screen, and more for the best locations, usually in the middle of the auditorium. Today on AirTalk, Larry sits down with John Horn, host of the LAist Studios podcast "Retake,” to talk about the news surrounding the large chain and what it means for the film industry.
