Here’s another nice perk for Amazon Prime members. They will be able to see the upcoming Aquaman movie up to six days before its official release in the United States. Granted, they will have to watch it at a participating cinema, but their Prime membership does entitle them to catch the movie earlier than the rest of the population.
Each Amazon Prime member will be able to purchase up to 10 tickets for a 7pm showing starting December 15th. The film will already be out in Europe and China by then so at least Prime members in the U.S. will be able to watch the movie before non-Prime members in the country. This perk runs for just under a week as the Aquaman movie officially opens for everyone on December 21st.
There will be more than 1,000 participating cinemas across the United States where Amazon Prime members can catch an early screening of the Aquaman movie. They include branches owned by Regal, AMC, National Amusement Theaters, and ArcLight Cinemas. Bookings can be made through Atom Tickets.
This isn’t the first time we’re seeing early screenings being offered. This was the case for Hotel Transylvania 3 and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle as well. Amazon does have an amicable relationship with cinemas as it often releases its original movies in cinemas prior to offering them on its streaming service.
