Life is slowly returning to normal and one big indicator is the movie theater. AMC theaters has announced their locations across the country are scheduled to start a phased reopening.
Approximately 300 other nationwide theaters will open over the following two weeks leading up to the release of Disney’s “The New Mutants” on Aug. 28 and Warner Brothers’ “TENENT” on Sept. 3.
The company will celebrate their 100th anniversary by providing moviegoers with 100-year-old ticket prices – just 15 cents (plus sales tax) per movie ticket. The theater will be featuring older titles until the release of new movies.
The company said in a release that AMC Ward Parkway 14, AMC Independence 20, AMC Town Center, AMC Barrywoods 24 and AMC DINE-IN Studio 28 would be in the first phase of reopening on Thursday Aug. 20.
The company said it is also launching its AMC Safe & Clean initiative in conjunction with Clorox to keep all theaters disinfected. Theatergoers will see reduced touch points inside all theater and other simplified measures for cleanliness, including simplified menus for shorter lines at concession stands and reduced auditorium capacities for social distancing.
Masks will be required for all guests throughout the theater — but may be removed while enjoying food and drinks. The company asks that you protect yourself and others by wearing a mask before, during and after your movie.
Every-other row inside auditoriums will be blocked off for social distancing purposes, and all theaters will operate at 30% capacity or less.
Hand sanitizer and wipes will be made available, and all condiments for food will be made available by request.
