The move in AMC seems to be driven by the same Reddit chat board that helped drive GameStop and some other heavily shorted stocks higher this week.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 93.9 million AMC Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as AMC Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 90.4% up from 49.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting AMC Entertainment shares can be evaluated.
AMC Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMC Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMC Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 80.2 million). AMC Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 1.17. In other words for every 100,000 AMC Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1170 shares are currently held short.
However AMC Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMC Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMC Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMC Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.21% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMC Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 210 shares are currently held short) or 0.2098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMC Entertainment shares, roughly 210 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against AMC Entertainment.
