NEWS: AMC to Potentially Reopen Its Movie Theaters Nationwide By July

There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not AMC could survive the summer since they shut down all of their movie theaters in the U.S. as well as the U.K. due to the current global health crisis.

And while the company had previously announced they would keep their theaters closed until studios began releasing new movies, they are currently working on a plan to reopen as many AMC theaters by July as they can.

CNN reporter @frankpallotta first broke the news via Twitter after AMC’s first-quarter earnings report.

Some films have had their premieres pushed back, but are quickly approaching. Disney’s Mulan is still slated for a July 24th theatrical release, after being postponed in March. AMC hasn’t shared exactly when they’re hoping to reopen by, but we would expect them to try to be open for the premiere of Mulan.

Meanwhile, AMC says “no movies made by Universal Studios are currently on our docket” they are “in active dialogue with Universal.”

AMC will implement several health and safety measures as part of their plan to reopen, including lowering guest capacity, spacing out parties, and enhancing their cleaning procedures — similar to what we saw them doing before closing down. We’ll continue to follow this story as it develops.
