Fret not if you’re worried that tickets will vanish like an unsaved Snapchat story—Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour isn’t pulling a one-night-only stunt. Instead, you can look forward to screenings at all AMC theaters across the U.S. four times a day from Thursday through Sunday during its premiere run. If you’re gunning for the VIP treatment, IMAX and Dolby Cinema are open for business, though they’ll charge you a bit more for the privilege. And guess what? AMC is playing distributor for this gig, so that means Regal and Cinemark are joining the fiesta too.
Ticket prices? Hold onto your cats! It’s $19.89 for adults—a hat tip to her recently re-released 1989 (Taylor’s Version) album—and $13.13 for seniors and youngsters. Premium viewing formats like Imax and Dolby will cost you extra—no surprises there.
Swift’s Take on The Eras Tour
In her announcement, T-Swift referred to The Eras Tour as “the most magical, electrifying ride of my life so far.” Translation? You’re in for a cinematic experience that’s going to light up your senses. Also, don’t panic if you thought you’d miss out on a thematic costume party or the bracelet-exchange bonanza. Swift explicitly said: “Come in your favorite Eras outfits, bring those friendship bands, and let’s all sing and dance.”
Big Boost for the Big Screen
This could be the adrenaline shot that movie theaters need, especially with ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes slowing down the regular film rollouts. Plus, let’s remember how Barbie smashed box-office records this summer, offering some foreshadowing of the potential seismic impact of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.
The film is the brainchild of director Sam Wrench, who has already proven his mettle with concert films like Billie Eilish Live at the O2 and Lizzo: Live in Concert. Gear up for a runtime of 2 hours and 45 minutes, a smidgen shorter than her live shows this summer.
