AMC Theatres was originally set to open 450 U.S. locations on July 15th, but they just announced they are pushing the reopen date back to July 30th before reopening the rest of the theaters by early August. AMC CEO and President Adam Aron said in a press release,
"We continue to devote extraordinary resources into our plan to operate our theatres with a hyper commitment to the safety and health of our guests and associates, notably in the United States through our new AMC Safe & Clean initiative. Our theatre general managers across the U.S. started working full time again today and are back in their theatres gearing up to get their buildings fully ready just a few weeks from now for moviegoers. That happy day, when we can welcome guests back into most of our U.S. theatres, will be Thursday, July 30."
The decision came right after the newly scheduled release dates of “Mulan” and “Tenent.” You cans see AMC's statement below:
