I saw this in the local news a bit earlier today. There’s one AMC theater in Wichita. It’s opening August 20th and is participating in the 15 cent pricing for August 20th. They are re-opening 100 theaters on this day. They have over 600 locations and plan to open about 2/3 of them by September 3rd. The movies will be older releases on August 20th and for a bit after that as new movies have been pretty much on hold for a while – https://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2020/08/amc-theatres-tickets-cost-15-cents-opening-day, but that’s still a great price. Employees and customers will have to wear masks.
While customers won’t be able to watch new films on Aug. 20, they will be able to see legacy titles like Black Panther and The Empire Strikes Back. And beginning the next day, on Aug. 21, AMC will show older films for $5, like the 10th anniversary edition of Inception, plus Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, and Grease.
In a different article, https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/13/media/amc-reopening-ticket-prices/index.html, concessions will be discounted
AMC said that it’s implementing new safety and health measures to help keep moviegoers safe and curb the spread of coronavirus. That includes requiring all guests to wear masks, lowering theater capacity and upgrading ventilation systems.After opening day, tickets will still be available for cheaper than usual. Tickets for films like “Inception,” “Black Panther,” “Back to the Future” and “The Empire Strikes Back” will cost $5. AMC is bringing back old films since the North American box office has been essentially at a standstill with so many new movies have been delayed this year because of the outbreak.The company, which was founded in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1920, is also offering discounts on concessions like popcorn for $5 through the end of October. “We are thrilled to once again open our doors to American moviegoers who are looking for an opportunity to get out of their houses and apartments and escape into the magic of the movies,” Adam Aron, AMC’s CEO, said in a statement on Thursday.
