AMC Theatres closed nationwide in March due to the global health crisis.
Many major films like Mulan and Tenet delayed release dates which caused a major delay in reopening AMC movie theatres as well. Disney has moved Mulan to release exclusively on Disney+. Now, according to CNN, over 100 AMC movie theatres will reopen on August 20th — all of which will be offering deeply discounted tickets.
Opening day will welcome back movie guests with ticket prices costing 15 cents. The company stated that they wanted to commemorate the occasion by offering “movies in 2020 at 1920 prices.” After opening day, many movies will cost $5.
What will AMC show now that release dates for most major films are delayed? The theatres will start by showing nostalgic films like Back to the Future and The Empire Strikes Back. There will also be showings of popular modern films like Inception and Black Panther.
AMC will implement new health and safety procedures upon reopening. Guests will be required to wear masks at all times, theater capacities will be lowered, and the theaters will upgrade ventilation systems.
AMC’s website states that the Disney Springs location will be among the theatres to reopen on August 20th. We’ll continue to update you with more information regarding AMC Theatres in the future.
