Dope is back! For those of us (myself included) that missed the comedy-drama’s movie-run, we’re in luck because AMC Theatres will show the movie throughout Labor Day weekend. Beginning Friday, September 4, the critically acclaimed film returns to the big screen, and guests who purchase a ticket to Dope and present a coupon at a participating AMC box office get a free ticket to the same showtime.
Written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa, and executive produced by Sean Combs, Dope is a “must-see’ story of inner city teens. The coming-of-age film follows Malcolm, played by Shameik Moore, as he survives life in Compton, a rough neighborhood in Los Angeles, while tackling the SAT, college applications and academic interviews. The movie’s cast includes Kiersey Clemons (Diggy), Zoë Kravitz (Nakia), Kimberly Elise (Lisa Hayes), Quincy Brown (Jaleel) and Afro-Latino actor Allen Maldonado (Alan the Bouncer), among other notable cast members.
Hear why Maldonado says Dope is a must-see movie and his experience (via Los Angeles Sentinel Newspaper):
Before you head out to see Dope, redeem the coupon for the buy-one-get-one-free ticket at www.amctheatres.com/dope and print off the coupon or display the coupon on your mobile device at the theatre box office.
