Major movie theater chains like AMC, Regal, and Cinemark have now dropped their face mask mandates for fully vaccinated guests.
AMC, Regal, and Cinemark have held on for dear life during the COVID-19 pandemic; however, things are now looking up. Many major films have also been delayed due to cases and theater closures in big markets like New York City and Los Angeles in the past year but have since reopened a few months ago. As more Americans get vaccinated, and after the new CDC guidelines hit—AMC, Regal, and Cinemark no longer require attendees to wear masks if they are fully vaccinated.
In a statement released to Variety, AMC said the following about their recent update to their COVID-19 policy:
“Consistent with the latest CDC guidance and following consultation with public health experts, AMC Theatres guests who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear face coverings at AMC locations, unless it is mandated by state or local ordinances. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are asked to continue wearing masks. All other aspects of the AMC Safe & Clean policies and procedures, including seat blocking, remain in place at this time.”
