LOS ANGELES, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today its collaboration with Target and MAGNUM ® Ice Cream Bar for the return of the special one-night-only event, Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies.

Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies will take place on Wednesday, April 24, at the ArcLight Hollywood. Tickets will go on sale on April 11 through the ArcLight Hollywood website ( arclightcinemas.com) and in person at the ArcLight Hollywood box office at 6360 West Sunset Blvd.

" AFI Night at the Movies is a tradition grand in scale, but simple in message -- to bring artists and audiences together to celebrate their common bond at the movies," said Bob Gazzale, AFI President & CEO.  "It's an evening akin to a firework show of American film, where across genre and across decades, we marvel at the power of the movies and their makers."

For the third year, Target returns as the presenting sponsor for AFI Night at the Movies. At this seminal cinematic event, MAGNUM Ice Cream will introduce its newest premium product MAGNUM Gold ®.

"Target is proud to once again present AFI Night at the Movies where film enthusiasts get the chance to experience iconic films in a truly unique and memorable way," said Shawn Gensch, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Target. "We are passionate about the entertainment industry, and Target is honored to bring together some of Hollywood's most legendary actors and filmmakers for one special evening."

Nick Soukas, Director of Ice Cream at Unilever, added, "Through our strong relationship with Target, MAGNUM is thrilled to deliver indulgences to legendary artists and audience members at AFI Night at the Movies, a spectacular celebration of American film."

The concept for the event was conceived in 2007 when the American Film Institute and Target partnered to kick off Target Presents AFI's 40th Anniversary with an original evening dedicated to AFI's history. The event brought together 10 film luminaries to present films including Julie Andrews, Warren Beatty, Billy Crystal, Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Tippi Hedren, Angela Lansbury, George Lucas, Jack Nicholson, Rob Reiner and Sylvester Stallone. Bookending a year of 40th anniversary events, Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies in 2008 continued to pair classic American films with the stars who made them including Annette Bening, Jim Carrey, Sean Connery, Cameron Diaz, Jodie Foster, Dustin Hoffman, Shirley MacLaine, Steve Martin, Rita Moreno, Mike Myers, Keanu Reeves and Denzel Washington.

Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies is a special event for all ages. Tickets to each individual screening are $30 and include a large popcorn and soda, as well as a Magnum ice cream bar.  Tickets go on sale on April 11 at 10:00 a.m. through the ArcLight Hollywood website ( arclightcinemas.com) and in person at the ArcLight Hollywood box office at 6360 West Sunset Blvd.  Information about the event will be available on AFI.com.
