According to a press release issued today, AMC Theatres will be reopening at more than 100 U.S. locations on August 20, 2020.
As if that isn’t enough to celebrate, they’re adding some fanfare to the reopening with a BIG deal on tickets.
“For one day only, on August 20, all tickets at AMC will be priced at 15 cents (plus sales tax).”
To celebrate 100 years of operation, they’re doing a special they’re calling “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.”
As part of the celebration, all U.S. AMC theatre locations that open on August 20 will offer all available seats that day for the 1920s admission price of 15 cents (plus tax).
That’s next Thursday. Is Wichita in that list of reopening theaters? Yes it is.
Will you even want to go to the theater on August 20? Well, here’s what they say their safety plan includes (emphasis mine):
AMC Safe & Clean components include 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. The entire AMC Safe & Clean plan can be found at amctheatres.com/amc-safe-and-clean.
It looks like the Wichita Northrock 14 AMC is playing throwback movies like Back to the Future, Goonies, Sonic the Hedgehog, I Still Believe, and The Empire Strikes Back.
Tickets are available right now on its website here.
New releases will be available at regular movie ticket prices starting the following day, August 21.
But more “Bringback” movies will be available for $5 beginning August 21. Those titles include Inception (10th anniversary event), Beauty and the Beast, Black Panther, Ghostbusters, and Grease, as well Back to the Future and The Empire Strikes Back, and others.
AMC will be opening approximately 300 of its other theaters in the two weeks following this initial opening. That’s when they’ll release Disney’s The New Mutants (August 28) and Warner Bros’ Tenet (September 3), if you’ve been waiting for those.
And if you’re not comfortable going back to the indoor theater yet, remember that the Starlite Drive-In Theater is open in Wichita, and on Sundays in August, they’ve even brought back carload pricing.
