The move is part of the company's plan to reopen operations in the US. AMC now expects to open approximately two thirds of its more than 600 USA theatre locations, including the AMC Rockford 16.
Since AMC was founded in 1920 in Kansas City - two years after the 1918 pandemic - the company plans a "Centennial Celebration" launch with a "Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices" promo. Of course, the movies that people will be able to buy tickets to see won't be new blockbusters. Tickets for films like "Inception", "Black Panther", "Back to the Future" and "The Empire Strikes Back" will cost $5.
The company expects to have two-thirds of its 600 American theaters open in time for Christopher Nolan's Tenet, which is now scheduled to open in America on September 3. Several states, including California and NY, are yet to allow movie theaters to reopen.
Curry County reports one new case of COVID-19
The Mineral County Health Department announced on Monday that the county has its first two confirmed COVID-19 cases. Tuesday's high volume of new cases - a high mark for the county - represented more than a 12% increase from Monday.
The few new movies that are opening in advance of "Tenet", such as the Russell Crowe thriller "Unhinged" and "The New Mutants", will carry 2020 prices of roughly $10, depending on the market.
As the pandemic continues on, the chain will be adopting new safety measures such as requiring members of its staff and customers to wear masks at all times, extra cleaning and disinfecting of high traffic areas, implementing a limited seating capacity in each auditorium, and the installation of air filters wherever possible. There will also be additional changes to the AMC Stubs A-List program, a MoviePass-esque subscription service that lets you watch up to three movies a week for a fixed fee.
The first round of openings includes theaters in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Las Vegas, St. Louis, and other markets.
