AMC Reopens Its Doors on August 20 with 15¢ Tickets
AMC plans to reopen its doors to U.S. moviegoers for the first time in more than five months. It also plans throwback pricing to the year it all started by offering “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.”
When the first batch of more than 100 AMC theatres reopens on August 20 of 2020, moviegoers can again enjoy the magic of the big screen at 1920 ticket prices. For one day only, on August 20, all tickets at AMC will be priced at 15 cents (plus sales tax). This is part of a phased plan to reopen AMC in the United States.
AMC currently expects to open approximately two thirds of its more than 600 U.S. theatre locations in time for the September 3 release of Warner Bros.’ TENET, following Disney’s August 28 release of THE NEW MUTANTS. The remainder of AMC’s U.S. theatres will open only after authorized to do so by state and local officials. The one-day 15 cent ticketing celebration kicks off several promotions that guests will find as they return to AMC locations around the country. Some future releases will be priced at $5 only and AMC is also offering an array of $5 food and beverage treats. Plus all AMC Stubs members will earn double points on all ticket and food & drink purchases through the end of October.
New Movie Releases
In addition to the throwback movie titles that start August 20, guests can enjoy new movie releases almost immediately, which will be available at normal admission prices.

AMC SAFE & CLEAN
Upon returning to the movies, AMC guests can expect to experience AMC’s comprehensive health and sanitation program, AMC says. It includes significant reductions in the maximum tickets available for each showtime and seat blocking in reserved seating auditoriums to allow for appropriate social distancing between parties, enhanced cleaning procedures that include extra time between showtimes to allow for a full, thorough cleaning and nightly disinfecting utilizing electrostatic sprayers, use of high tech HEPA vacuums, upgraded air filtration efforts including the use of MERV 13 filters wherever possible, new guest and associate safety protocols that include mandatory mask wearing by all guests and associates, hand sanitizing stations throughout the theatre, and the availability to guests of disinfectant wipes.
