The nation’s largest movie theater chain is reopening soon with limited locations. After several attempts to reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic, AMC Theaters is finally making moves to make it official.
Thursday, August 20th is AMC’s target date to reopen limited locations across the country. The opening day will be celebrated with a “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.” A selection of throwback films will be available to view for only 15-cent: “Ghostbusters,” “Black Panther,” “Back To The Future,” and “Grease.” After the opening with the throwback films they will still be available to view for $5.
The Associated Press reports, “AMC confirmed that Disney’s much-delayed “New Mutants” will debut in theaters Aug. 28, with Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” to follow Sept. 3. Warner Bros. is planning to release “Tenet” a week earlier internationally, including in Canada. A handful of smaller new releases are also planned for late August, including “Unhinged,” a thriller from Solstice Studios with Russell Crowe; and Armando Iannucci’s “Personal History of David Copperfield,” from Disney’s Fox Searchlight.”
Regal Cinemas, the nation’s second largest theater chain, are planning to open up some locations beginning on Friday, August 21st.
