Today, AMC Theatres announced how they’re delaying the reopening of their movie theaters until July 30th, 2020. The new reopening date is to help the movie chain better align with the rescheduled blockbuster movie release dates arriving in August.
For instance, Disney’s live-action Mulan has a new release date of August 21, 2020. Other releases such as Tenet, Bill and Ted Face the Music, New Mutants, and others will be arriving in theaters later this summer. It’s been a long time since many movies goers went to see a film due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the new health and safety measures will help movie goers enjoy themselves once the movie chain does reopen.
Also, AMC Theatres is implementing a mask policy for future customers. The company will require all employees and guests to wear masks when the movie theater chain reopens. It was formerly an option for guests to wear masks in theaters, but AMC reversed its decision to better ensure health and safety with a mandatory mask requirement.
The movie theater company has taken other measures to ensure health and safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, common areas will be routinely disinfected, and each theater auditorium will be reduced to 30% capacity or less to maintain social distancing.
