Movie Theaters Across the U.S. Will All Close for 6 to 12 Weeks

The major movie chains in the United States are closing all locations amid the coronavirus outbreak and it’s expected that all of the other theaters will be closed throughout the pandemic.

AMC, Regal, Landmark, Cineplex Odeon, and Alamo Drafthouse are among the chains that have all confirmed they’ll be shutting their doors.

Deadline reports that theaters around the country are going to be closed for “at least six to 12 weeks, in compliance with local, state and federal directives, and as a precaution to help ensure the health and safety of moviegoers and theatre staff.” New guidelines from the CDC limit social gatherings to no more than 10 people.

AMC will automatically pause A-List memberships while the chain’s theaters are closed and members will be allowed to pause their memberships for an additional month once theaters are re-opened if they wish to do that.

Movie studios have started to announce that current titles will be released on VOD with Universal’s The Invisible Man, The Hunt, and Emma all being released on Friday (March 20). They will also stick to Trolls World Tour‘s original release date of April 10 and release the movie on VOD that day!

Warner Bros. is making Birds of Prey available for digital purchase on March 27.
