As expected with NY and LA still un-opened, and Tenet, the first big event pic heading to Aug. 12, the No. 1 exhibitor in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East, AMC, will now reopen its circuit on July 30 instead of July 15. On the new date, the Leawood, KS chain will resume operations of 450 U.S. theatres as part of its phased plan to bring its 600-plus multiplexes back on line by early August.
Adam Aron, CEO & President, AMC Theatres said, “We continue to devote extraordinary resources into our plan to operate our theatres with a hyper commitment to the safety and health of our guests and associates, notably in the United States through our new AMC Safe & Clean initiative. Our theatre general managers across the U.S. started working full time again today and are back in their theatres gearing up to get their buildings fully ready just a few weeks from now for moviegoers. That happy day, when we can welcome guests back into most of our U.S. theatres, will be Thursday, July 30.”
