Les Misérables is extolled as one of the greatest musicals of all time, and for one week only, AMC Theatres will be showing a new-and-improved version of the 2012 film adaptation on the big screen.
Based on the 1862 novel by French writer Victor Hugo, Les Misérables is a poignant sung-through musical that takes place during the French revolution. The original stage production debuted on West End in 1985 and on Broadway in 1987, but the musical did not receive a film adaptation until 2012. The result was a resounding success. With a star-studded cast including A-list performers such as Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter, this masterpiece brought home three Oscars, three Golden Globes, and four Satellite Awards among many other international accolades. Now, 12 years after the film’s original release, director Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables is being remixed and remastered by Dolby.
Starting on Thursday, February 22, participating AMC Theatres will be showing the re-release for just one week. You can experience it a few days earlier if you happen to live in the UK, Ireland, Australia, or New Zealand, where it will release on Valentine’s Day (as advertised on the banner above). Tickets are available for purchase through Fandango as well as on AMC’s website or mobile app.
