AMC Theatres has officially announced that it will be reopening approximately 2/3 of its theatres starting August 20th, 2020, as well as their AMC DINE-IN Disney Springs 24.

AMC is offering $0.15 a ticket. Yes, you read that right. $0.15 cents! If you do your research, you’ll discover that that is almost the cost of a movie ticket in 1920 when the Dubinsky Brothers, the company’s founders, began operations with just a single movie screen in Kansas City, Missouri. Happy 100th Anniversary, fellas.

Movies Available at Special Reopening Price

  • Black Panther
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Back to the Future
  • Grease
  • Ghostbusters
  • Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

Beginning August 21st, 2020 the AMC chain will show several of these films for just $5 a ticket. If you’re looking to grab some Tickets in Advance, click here.

Health & Safety Guidelines

Masks Required for All

Because we care about your health, masks are required for guests and crew throughout the theatre. Your mask must cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly around your face and chin. Neck gaiters, open-chin bandanas and masks with vents or exhalation valves are not acceptable at this time, based on World Health Organization guidelines. If needed, masks are available to purchase for just $1.

Food & Drink in the Auditorium

In the auditorium, masks are still required, but may be removed while enjoying food and drinks. Protect yourself and others by wearing a mask before, during and after your movie.

Social Distancing Standards

Please remember to maintain distance before, during and after the movie. Follow the directional signs and the reminders posted throughout the theatre for guidance.

Reduced Auditorium Capacities

All AMC, AMC DINE-IN™ and AMC CLASSIC® auditoriums are at 30% capacity or less, based on municipality guidelines. In auditoriums with traditional seating, every other row is blocked off for your safety. In auditoriums with wide AMC Signature Recliners, there is already enough space between rows to allow for social distancing. In all auditoriums, please leave an empty seat between yourself and other guests. Once you’re in the auditorium, if you are uncomfortable in your reserved seat, feel free to move to another socially distant seat after the movie starts, or see an associate for assistance or a refund.

Cashless Transactions

Where tickets are sold, credit, debit or AMC gift cards are preferred to reduce contact, but cash is accepted, and may be used if needed to purchase a gift card for movie treats.

Cash is not accepted at concessions or MacGuffins® Bar in order to avoid shared contact between cash and food handling. At select theatres where tickets and concessions are sold at one location, we will accept cash if no other form of payment is possible.

Simplified Menu Selections

For shorter lines and quicker service, we have temporarily simplified our selections. Classic movie treats like AMC Perfectly Popcorn™, Coca-Cola® Freestyle, hot dogs, candy, MovieNachos, AMC KidsPacks® and more are available now, and we’ll expand the menu as soon as possible.

Hand Sanitizer & Disinfecting Wipes Available

Take advantage of the sanitiser and wipe stations throughout the theatre, especially at concessions, before and after pouring your favourite Coca-Cola Freestyle drink.

Condiments & More Available by Request

When you check out at concessions, don’t forget to ask your cashier for everything you need! To reduce touch points, napkins, lids, straws and condiments like ketchup, mustard, relish, buttery popcorn topping and salt are now available by request.

Refills Temporarily Unavailable

To minimize contact, AMC Perfectly Popcorn™ and Coca-Cola® Freestyle drink refills are unavailable at this time.

Frequent Hand Washing

Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face. Managers and crew members are required to routinely wash their hands for at least 20 seconds.

Daily Associate Health Screenings

Managers and crew members have their temperatures read before starting their shifts. Anyone who has a fever or symptoms is required to self-quarantine until symptom-free for at least 72 hours.

Self-Check Your Health

If you have symptoms such as fever or cough or have come in contact with someone with symptoms, please take care and come back to see a movie with us when you are well.

Thoroughly Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers

Auditoriums are disinfected before each show with new electrostatic disinfectant sprayers. This cutting-edge equipment maximizes surface coverage by using negatively charged ions so that the disinfectant particles wrap around and cling to positively charged surfaces.

HEPA Filter Vacuums

Every night, we vacuum carpeted areas using vacuums with HEPA filters, which are proven to trap 99.97% of airborne particles.

Upgraded MERV 13 Air Filters

For superior air quality, we’ve upgraded our HVAC systems with MERV 13 filters wherever possible.

Routine Cleaning & Disinfecting

Throughout the day, common areas and high touch points are routinely cleaned and sanitized. In auditoriums, hard surfaces, including doors, handrails, recliner buttons, and tray tables will be disinfected before each showtime.

AMC is closely monitoring federal, state and local guidelines and our policies and procedures will continue to evolve accordingly. Be sure to read the updated health and safety guidelines at AMC, click here.
