AMC: Leave props at home for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/AP) – Three years in the waiting, the opening of the erotic romance on sweethearts’ weekend will be a breathless affair for “Fifty” die-hards everywhere.

If you plan on attending the film leave your props at home. AMC Theaters said they welcome guests who show their excitement for a film by dressing in costume. However, they ask moviegoers to leave their ropes, whips, ties and other props at home.

The ticket-buying site Fandango said pre-sales have propelled “Fifty Shades” into the 15-year-old company’s all-time Top 5 for R-rated selections. Several hundred screenings have already sold out. Some are in unanticipated hot spots, including Tupelo, Mississippi, and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The film will release in theaters on Feb. 13.
