HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — AMC Theatres is reopening two locations in Hampton Roads on Thursday, August 20.
The company is scheduled to reopen 100 locations nationwide, including AMC Lynnhaven in Virginia Beach and AMC Hampton 24, according to a news release.
AMC also made this reopening unique for guests. As a way to celebrate their 100th anniversary, guests will pay the 1920 retro ticket prices of only 15 cents per movie.
“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.
Upon returning to the movies, AMC has a comprehensive health and sanitation program in place. This includes significant reductions in the maximum tickets available for each showtime, seat blocking in reserved seating auditoriums to allow for appropriate social distancing between parties, enhanced cleaning procedures between show times, and nightly disinfecting utilizing electrostatic sprayers.
Masks will be mandatory for all guests and associates to wear upon return. Hand sanitizing stations, and disinfectant wipes will be available, throughout the theater.
They expect to have an additional 300 locations reopened within two weeks following the release of The New Mutants on August 28 and Tenet on September 3.
