AMC Theatres will reopen most locations across the United States starting Friday, March 19, 2021.
A year ago, the popular movie theatre franchise closed its doors due to the rising cases of the Coronavirus pandemic. In July 2020, the chain pushed back its previously planned reopening dates.
On Thursday, AMC Theatres announced that it expects to have 99% of all U.S. locations open by March 26, 2021. Urging the importance of health and safety guidelines as a part of its reopening plan, AMC spoke to its updated protocols.
“AMC is reopening and operating with the highest devotion to the health and safety of our guests and associates through our AMC Safe & Clean policies and protocols, said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC. “…AMC Safe & Clean includes social distancing & automatic seat blocking in each auditorium, mandatory mask-wearing, and upgraded air filtration with MERV-13 air filters, as well as many other important health, sanitization, and cleanliness efforts.”
