Up to 10,000 free tickets will be available for veterans and active military.

Universal and AMC have announced plans to offer free tickets to US veterans and active-duty servicemembers for an upcoming preview screening of Thank You for Your Service.

The 7pm screening will be held on October 26 at more than 400 AMC locations. Each of the first 25 servicemembers (per location) with valid, government-issued VA or military ID can receive one free admission to the preview showing. Free tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be picked up starting at 9AM at the box office of participating AMC locations on October 26. 

"Once we began a discussion with AMC about how we could embody the spirit and message of Thank You for Your Service, they stepped up to the plate in a major way," said Jim Orr, Executive Vice President, General Sales Manager, Universal Pictures.  "We are honored that up to 10,000 U.S. veterans and active servicemembers will be among the first to experience this riveting film from our partners at DreamWorks."

Thank You for Your Service opens wide on October 27. The film is based on the bestselling book by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and author David Finkel, and stars Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Amy Schumer, Joe Cole, Beulah Koale, Scott Haze, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Brad Beyer, Omar J. Dorsey and Jayson Warner Smith.

"Thank You for Your Service reminds us all of the tremendous sacrifice made by America's servicemembers and their families," said Elizabeth Frank, EVP Worldwide Programming and Chief Content Officer, AMC Theatres.  "AMC is pleased to partner with Universal Pictures to offer veterans and active servicemembers the opportunity to attend this preview screening at no charge."
