AMC, the nation’s largest theater chain, says that 99% of its U.S. theaters are open, and 7 million people attended an AMC theatre in the first quarter of 2021.
As of April 30, 2021, AMC was operating approximately 589 of its 593 domestic locations, and approximately 110 of its 357 international locations. AMC said their theatre business is coming back after a year of shutdowns.
“During the first quarter, approximately 7 million U.S. and international patrons confidently returned to an AMC theatre,” said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC.
“The comprehensive and vigorous steps we have taken through our AMC Safe & Clean protocols, designed in consultation with Clorox and current and former faculty of Harvard University’s acclaimed School of Public Health, tangibly have demonstrated to our guests and associates that we have reopened responsibly and also have provided reassurance of our continued focus on their health and safety.”

Masks Required at AMC Theatres
AMC said all patrons must wear a mask during their entire visit, except when enjoying food and drink.
“AMC requires each guest to wear a mask that fully covers their nose and mouth, fits closely over their cheeks and chin, and is comfortably secured with ear loops or ties. For this reason, neck gaiters, open-chin bandanas and masks with vents, valves or holes are unacceptable face coverings at this time. If needed, masks are available to purchase for just $1,” AMC said.
“Because we care about your health, all guests are required to wear a mask at all times, before, during and after the movie, unless actively enjoying food or drinks in the auditorium..”
Additional AMC Safety Measures
“On your next theatre visit, you’ll notice that we’ve taken steps to reduce touch points and protect your safety, including simplified menus for shorter lines at concessions and reduced auditorium capacities for social distancing,” AMC said.
