When the coronavirus became a worldwide pandemic, many businesses were forced to change how they operated. This, of course, included in the movie industry and many theaters had to shut down in order to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. One such theater chain was, of course, AMC Theaters, which has announced its new plan to reopen its theaters.
AMC Theaters has stated that the reopening of its theaters will happen in phases. The first phase will begin on July 15th keep their theatres at 30% capacity. A date for phase two has not been announced by it will raise the capacity to 40% and is hoping to raise it again to 50% by labor day. AMC Theaters is expecting to be ready for full capacity by Thanksgiving of this year.
AMC Theaters will reopen 450 of its locations although it was unclear as to which of the theaters would be open. It is, for example, currently unclear as to whether or not any of the theater chain’s locations will open in Los Angeles or New York City and is entirely dependent on health regulations in those cites. However, the plans for the reopening of the theater industry has begun and AMC Theaters is determined to be open in time for Mulan and Tenet.
