At locations with a MacGuffins Bar, guests will also be able to purchase a movie-themed beverage called "The Heist," a mix of peach vodka, triple sec, orange juice and soda, to enjoy the movie with. AMC is encouraging guests to share photos of the experience with the hashtag #TakeYour8.
“We’re so excited to offer this exclusive opportunity for guests to return to the high-stakes world of the Ocean crew, but a crew with a new twist, a few days early in the incredible movie-watching environment of Dolby Cinema at AMC,” Elizabeth Frank, AMC's CCO and executive vp worldwide programming, said in a statement. “This new approach to Ocean’s franchise results in an incredibly fun film, led by an amazing cast, and it is perfect for a girls’ night out, a date night or for any movie lovers wanting to see a great summer comedy.”
Tickets for the "Girls' Night Out" event are on sale now. A list of participating AMC locations is available on the theater chain's website.
Oceans 8 is tracking for $40 million-plus in its first weekend, starting June 8.
