AMC Theatres® (NYSE: AMC and APE), the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States and the world, and Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) today announced an innovative partnership connecting several AMC locations in the United States will change in Zoom Rooms.

As hybrid working becomes more common in the United States, Zoom Rooms at AMC will enable companies and other entities with distributed workforces and client bases to bring people from different markets together simultaneously for cohesive virtual and in-person events and meeting experiences. This combines the outstanding experience of Zoom with the convenience and state-of-the-art picture and sound technology of AMC’s modern and centrally located theaters.

AMC and Zoom currently anticipate launching Zoom Rooms at AMC in up to 17 major US markets sometime in 2023.

Once launched, Zoom Rooms at AMC users can easily book online, choosing their preferred theaters and meeting times. They will be given a three-hour block of time to host their event virtually across multiple markets at the selected theaters. AMC and Zoom will provide the necessary equipment for a fully-functional Zoom Rooms experience in the comfort of multiple theaters in multiple cities simultaneously. Typical auditorium sizes are between 75 and 150 seats, depending on the theater.

Additional services including food and beverage options, possible film screenings and personalized concierge-style assistance for meeting needs are also available at an additional cost.

The announcement is another innovative initiative from AMC aimed at maximizing the value that can be derived from the massive seating capacity.

Adam Aron, Chairman and CEO of AMC Theaters commented:
“One of the lessons we learned during the pandemic, when so many of us have been forced to work remotely, was the importance of a reliable, dynamic communications platform. We’ve also learned that the opportunity to meet face-to-face is still important, even when we’re far apart. That’s why I’m so excited about this AMC partnership with Zoom. So many of us know how important Zoom is to managing our businesses. Through this partnership between Zoom and AMC, we now have the best of both worlds – Zoom’s spectacular communications platform combined with the convenience, size, scope and state-of-the-art picture and sound capabilities of AMC’s centrally located theaters. This creates a whole new product in major US cities for businesses and meeting planners.”

Aron continued, “AMC has an abundance of attractive theaters in centrally located venues city after city, each with ample seating, especially during the weekday daytime when most meetings are taking place. Our cutting-edge picture and sound technology is widely recognized and has made movie theater gatherings one of the most popular outdoor entertainment options in the United States. Zoom Rooms at AMC expands our scope as we can now participate in the multi-billion market for corporate and other meetings.”
