Tysons AMC Theatre to Reopen Next Week With 15-Cent Tickets

Now, the cinema giant has unveiled a new plan to reopen two-thirds of its chains by September 3rd, with 100 locations reopening as early as August 20th.

The few new movies that are opening in advance of "Tenet", such as the Russell Crowe thriller "Unhinged" and "The New Mutants", will carry 2020 prices of roughly $10, depending on the market.

The remaining theaters will reopen as permitted by state and local authorities. The global pandemic has forced studios to reexamine theatrical release windows, as well as release films first in overseas markets, where theaters have begun to reopen at a significantly reduced capacity.

Masks are required for all workers and guests, though they can be taken off when eating or drinking inside the theater.

Theaters also will have disinfectant wipes available. The company says it will reopen around 100 locations August 20 in cities including Atlanta, Dallas, and Miami, with 15-cent tickets on opening day for legacy titles including Black Panther, Ghostbusters, and The Empire Strikes Back, Variety reports.

Discounts on concessions like popcorn will be sold for $5 through the end of October, the company said.

"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, CEO and President of AMC Theatres, said in a statement.

AMC, the world's largest movie theater chain, has announced their plans to reopen approximately 100 of its USA theaters on August 20, 2020, including its Disney Springs location.

August 21 - "Unhinged", "Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula", "Cut Throat City", "Words on Bathroom Walls" and the "Inception" 10th anniversary event.
