AMC Gives Update to A-List Members, Reveals New Policies Ahead of Reopening

AMC Theatres just provided a big update to A-List members ahead of the company’s reopening later this month.

Movie theatres across the country have been shut down since March amid the coronavirus pandemic and AMC will begin reopening theatres on August 20. More than 100 locations will open on that date and two-thirds of the locations in the U.S. will be open no later than September 3.

New movies that you can expect to see include Russell Crowe‘s Unhinged on August 21, the X-Men movie The New Mutants on August 28, and Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet on September 3. AMC will be playing a selection of library titles and tickets will cost just $5 for those classics. New releases will play at current movie-going prices.

AMC is implementing rigorous cleaning and safety protocols in order to welcome guests back into movie theaters. The company worked with scientists and experts at The Clorox Company and current and former faculty of Harvard University’s prestigious School of Public Health to come up with the steps to take. Keep reading on for the full protocols!

The company recently disclosed a policy on masks that customers will have to follow.

For those that don’t know, the AMC Stubs A-List program allows members to watch up to three movies a week for as little as $19.95 a month depending where you live. A bunch of new policies were just announced!
