The world’s largest movie theater chain will reopen more than 100 US theaters on Aug. 20, the company said Thursday. To commemorate its one-year anniversary, AMC is offering “2020 movies at 1920 awards”. This is a 15 cent ticket.
AMC closed all of its theaters in the U.S. in March as the pandemic unfolded, and reopening was delayed several times.
AMC (AMC) added that he expects two-thirds of his more than 600 American theater seats to open by the time Christopher Nolan’s thriller “Tenet” hits theaters on September 3rd. , “according to the company.
AMC said it is implementing new safety and health measures to help keep films safe and curb the spread of the coronavirus. This includes having all guests wear masks, reduce the capacity of the theater, and improve ventilation systems.
After the opening day, tickets will still be available for cheaper than usual. Tickets for movies like “Inception,”
; “The Black Panther,” “Back to the Future” and “The Empire Strikes Back” will cost $ 5. AMC is bringing back old movies as so many new movies have been delayed this year due to the explosion.
The company, which was founded in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1920, is also offering discounts on popcorn concessions for $ 5 by the end of October.
“We are excited to once again open our doors to American films who are looking for an opportunity to get out of their homes and apartments and escape the magic of movies,” said Adam Aron, CEO of AMC , in a statement Thursday.
The theater chain announced in June that it was set to reopen on July 15th, but was delayed on July 30th due to a lack of films offered by the studios. It was delayed again last month until mid-late August.
But now it looks like AMC will finally reopen as some new movies like Disney’s “New Mutants” on August 28 and “Tenet” on September 3 are set, at least for now, to hit the market.
An obvious lack of AMC movie reopening queues is Disney’s “Mulan.” Disney announced earlier this month that the remake of the 1998 animated classic would hit theaters and Disney + on September 4th.
