AMC Theatres will offer free screenings at 100 theaters nationwide of the 1971 Oscar-nominated documentary “King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis” on April 4 at 6 PM.
The event is in honor of the 51st anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s death.
In 1999, the film was selected by the Library of Congress to be preserved and included in the National Film Registry.
Prior to its 2013 theatrical re-release with Gathr Films and Kino Lorber, “King: A Filmed Record” was rarely seen since its 1970 one-time only theatrical premiere.
Free tickets are available at AMC theatres and at http://www.gofobo.com/AMCKing.
