AMC Theaters is going to great lengths to get patrons through its doors.

The world’s largest theater chain announced a package this weekend which will allow a group of as many as 20 people to arrange for a private screening.

The offer will let parties rent out a theater for as little as $99, and features a selection of 17 films including “Jurassic Park” and holiday favorite “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster “Tenet” is also available for a screening, but is significantly more expensive at $349. Other add-ons, including food and drink and control over the theater’s PA system, will jack up the price tag as well.

The coronavirus pandemic has pummeled the theater industry since March, and AMC said last week that its “existing cash resources would be largely depleted by the end of 2020 or early 2021” if current trends continue.

Warner Bros. recently delayed “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson from Oct. 1, 2021, to March 4, 2022, while MGM has delayed the upcoming James Bond flick: “No Time to Die,” starring Daniel Craig until April 2 from Nov. 12.
