AMC Theatres to Re-Open on August 20
The world's largest movie chain, AMC Theatres, is planning on reopening its theaters later this month and inviting guests to go see a movie for only 15 cents.
AMC is planning to reopen more than 100 of its U.S. theaters on August 20. And in honor of the company's centennial, it will be offering "movies in 2020 at 1910 prices," which amounts to 15 cents a ticket.
After opening day, tickets will still be available for cheaper than usual.
There are seven AMC locations in Louisiana: Baton Rouge (2), Harahan, Harvey, Metairie, Hammond, and Houma.
However, it is not known exactly yet which of these theaters will be reopening on August 20.
AMC did say that they expect to open two-thirds of its more than 600 U.S. theater locations by the time Christopher Nolan's thriller "Tenet" hits theaters on September 3. So you would think at least some of these Louisiana locations will be included in this number.
AMC says it's implementing new safety and health measures to help keep moviegoers safe. That includes requiring all guests to wear masks, lowering theater capacity, and upgrading ventilation systems.
"We are thrilled to once again open our doors to American moviegoers who are looking for an opportunity to get out of their houses and apartments and escape into the magic of the movies," Adam Aron, AMC's CEO, said in a statement on Thursday.
