AMC theaters is teaming up with CNN to make a unique theater experience for their STUBS members. The theater chain will be offering viewing parties for Election Night to watch results with either Republican or Democrat themed groups. The Blue or Red parties will take place in 50 theaters across 25 major markets.
This is believed to be the first time election night viewing parties have been offered in any movie theater. Each STUBS member will be able to bring two friends. Election night is Tuesday, November 8th, a night few people tend to go to the movies.
AMC has used voter registration data to determine where to set up Blue and Red result parties.
Deadline points out that STUBS members can sign up for either theater regardless of what political party they are registered for. This could make for an interesting night if someone from one party decided to go to the other groups party and cause a problem… and with this political cycle, anything could happen.

Orlando, Phoenix, St. Louis, Houston, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, FL, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, Tampa and Washington, D.C.and in swing-state cities of Columbus, Ohio, and Denver, CO
