At least one location in Disney Springs is now facing an extended closure.
The Re-Open Florida Task Force Executive Committee is working to develop a plan for strategically reopening businesses in the state. But it looks like the AMC Dine-In Theatre in Disney Springs will remain closed for at least a few more months, regardless of plans laid out by the committee.
AMC Theatres has over 630 locations in the United States. And the company has announced that all of them will remain closed until there are new films scheduled to premiere.
The first summer studio film scheduled to be released is Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, set for July 17th. The film is closely followed by the live-action remake of Mulan, which received a new premiere date of July 24th.
AMC released a statement clarifying the decision, “As we plan our reopening, the health and safety of our guests and associates is our absolute highest priority. To be able to open, we also need a line of sight into a regular schedule of new theatrical blockbusters that get people truly excited about returning to their favorite movie theaters.”
The statement also continues to say that while they will reopen before the actual premiere date of the first scheduled summer film, the company plans to hold off until closer to the date, “While we expect to open our theaters in the weeks ahead of these new blockbusters, utilizing creative programming of immensely popular previously released films, we would be wise to do so only directly in advance of the release of major new movie titles.”
The company hasn’t announced an exact reopening date yet, so we will keep you posted on when we might see the AMC in Disney Springs reopen.
