Angel Studios — a platform and studio empowering filmmakers to crowdfund, create, and distribute films and TV series globally, backed by more than 70,000 investors in the Angel Guild—is issuing the following statement regarding rumors about AMC theaters and the “Sound of Freedom.”
“We understand there are rumors—predominantly in social media—that AMC theaters have made it difficult for fans to see ‘Sound of Freedom’ in local AMC theaters, and we want to make it clear these rumors are not accurate,” states Brandon Purdie, Head of Angel Theatrical Distribution. “AMC has been an outstanding partner for Angel Studios, and in fact, as a result of the movie’s performance and consumer demand, AMC has agreed to add additional screens for ‘Sound of Freedom’ this weekend.”
“Angel Studios and the producers of ‘Sound of Freedom’ are asking our fans to support AMC, and all of our other theatrical partners. Summer is the busiest season for people working in theaters, so we ask that anyone attending a screening of ‘Sound of Freedom’ show kindness to their local theater staff. We have the best movie fans in the business. Let’s continue to show theaters the love that Angel supporters are known for.”
Support from Angel’s theatrical partners has been the backbone of the success of “Sound of Freedom.” AMC has been a key advocate, with the film showing in nearly all AMC theaters, which have sold over one million tickets.
Angel Studios thanks all of its partners in exhibition on the Sound of Freedom release:
- Marcus Theatres
- Harkins Theatres
- Cineplex Cinemas
- Landmark Cinemas
- B&B Theatres
- Megaplex Theatres
- Malco Theatres
- National Association of Theatre Owners
- Independent Cinema Alliance
- Along with the 200 additional theater chains in North America.
“Sound of Freedom” is based upon the true story of former government agent Tim Ballard who quit his job to rescue a little girl from sex traffickers in the Colombian jungle. In the process, Tim ended up saving 123 people, 55 of which were children, from one mission alone.
