AMC Postpones Opening of Cinemas
AMC has announced that they will postpone the opening of their cinemas until the end of July due to COVID-19. With many films still postponing release dates, theatres just can't justify opening before these major theatrical releases are ready to premiere. On July 30, AMC will open its first 450 cinemas and the rest will open in early August.
AMC CEO Adam Aron said in a statement, "We continue to devote extraordinary resources into our plan to operate our theater 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 theater general managers across the U.S. started working full time again today and are back in their theaters 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. theaters, will be Thursday, July 30."
The news comes after the new release dates for "Tenet" and "Mulan", and will also coincide with the release of "Unhinged" and "The Broken Hearts Gallery".
