Just like the phases of unlocking, the theatre too will open up in phases. So, this will supposedly be the first stage of reopening. As per the data in hand, this venture comprises of 100 venues covering more than one-sixth of the entire nation.
The company has also opened various international franchises in different countries. In spite of that, they are under a complete shut down since the month of March 2020. This was the time when the pandemic Coronavirus affected the entire planet leaving everyone under complete lockdown. AMC is definitely the world’s largest movie theatre chain.
The enterprise is aware of the fact that reopening will not be an easy task. To woo the public and bring them out of the fear of the virus will be a challenging task in itself. In order to tackle that, they came with a strategy that they will be keeping the ticket prices like the ones in the year 1920. With the ticket price as low as 15 cents, they are targeting a high demand.
After being pumped by the news, Regal Cinemas which is the nation’s second-largest chain too decided to revive themselves. Regal cinemas will reopen from the very next day after AMC theatres open up. Hence, we will find Regal cinemas open from 21st August 2020. The AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. has planned to open its theatres in the United States starting from 20th August 2020.
AMC came up with a plan as to what will they showcase the first day. They decided to aim at the old hit movies like Ghostbusters, Black Panther, and Back to the Future which is well known for keeping the viewers well entertained in the past. Eventually, these movies will still be on display but with a higher cost of five U.S. dollars.
AMC is discussing that by 3rd September 2020 they want to make as many as 600 theatres in the United States wide open. We should not forget the fact that this is very important for them. In this month, the highly awaited movie of Christopher Nolan ‘Tenet’ is scheduled for a 3rd September 2020 release date. However, looking at the prevailing devastating situation, several states including California and New York have not yet given a nod for the cinema halls to unlock themselves.
Meanwhile, AMC is strictly instructed to follow all the important guidelines in order to keep the COVID-19 at bay. Wearing a mask will be mandatory for all the people coming to watch the movie. Moreover, social distancing will be followed in the seating arrangements. In fact, the theaters will increase their cleaning facilities, especially after every show.
