"With the launch of AMC Theatres new line of microwave and ready-to-eat popcorn, AMC yet again makes good on a promise made to our moviegoers and our investors," Adam Aron, Chairman and CEO of AMC Theatres, said in a news release.

The new initiative is called "Sightline at AMC." It will be applied to showtimes beginning after 4 p.m. and is not applicable on Discount Tuesdays.
The company said moviegoers will pay more or less for their tickets depending on where they want to sit.
