Bradley Cooper both directed and stars in the remake opposite Lady Gaga.

Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born will screen two days early in more than 115 AMC theaters equipped with high-end Dolby Cinema, the mega-circuit announced Tuesday.

The special event for those who prefer to see a film on a large-format screen will be held the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 2. Two days later, Warner Bros. will host Thursday-night previews across the country before expanding the film's footprint even more on Friday.

A Star Is Born marks Cooper's feature directorial debut and has drawn high praise from critics following its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival (the awards contender also made a stop at the Toronto International Film Festival). The remake of the 1937 film tells the story of a hard-drinking country rocker who launches the career of an aspiring singer-songwriter after the pair fall in love.

AMC's customer loyalty programs, including AMC Stubs A-List and $5 Ticket Tuesday, may not be used for the Oct. 2 showings.
