Reopening of largest American theater chain will coincide with blockbusters’ moves to August
Following the move of “Mulan” and “Tenet” from a late July release date to mid-August, AMC Theaters announced on Monday that it is shifting its timetable for reopening its 600-plus theater circuit to coincide with the release of the two blockbusters.
The majority of AMC’s locations, approximately 450 theaters, will now reopen on July 30, the same weekend that Solstice Studios is set to release their indie thriller “Unhinged.” “Mulan” is currently set for release on August 12, with “Tenet” following on August 21.
“We continue to devote extraordinary resources into our plan to operate our theatres 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,” AMC CEO Adam Aron said in a statement. “Our theatre general managers across the U.S. started working full time again today and are back in their theatres 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. theatres, will be Thursday, July 30.”
