AMC Theatres will begin reopening multiplexes on August 20th. The theater chain has been shut down since the start of the pandemic.
AMC will start by opening 100 locations in areas of the country where coronavirus restrictions are more lenient for indoor gatherings. By September 3rd, two-thirds of AMC locations will re-open. Other AMC theatres will open when local and state mandates approve for them to do so.
AMC promises limited capacity in theaters, a mask-wearing policy, social distancing, and enhanced cleaning procedures.
To start, AMC will show throwback movies for $5 including 'Back to the Future,' 'Grease,' 'Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back.' The theaters will also offer special $5 snack deals through October, and AMC members will earn double points on all purchases.
