AMC Theaters Announces Reopening Plans

AMC Theaters has announced that "almost all" of its currently shuttered theaters will reopen in July. AMC is the number one operator of multiplex cinemas in the world and expects to be back in business by mid July.

The opening comes with the caveat that precautions for COVID-19 will limit capacity. That does not mean you will have to sit 6 feet away from your date. According to an article in the New York Times by Brooks Barnes, it just means that groups will be seated together, with appropriate social distance spacing maintained between the groups while also adhering to state regulations. Another measure discussed is staggered, designated arrival times and allowing customers to buy their concessions with an app.

The first anticipated blockbuster that can serve as the test case for other audiences will return to theaters is the Russell Crowe thriller "Unhinged" which will be followed by Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" a couple weeks later. The same New York Times article notes that Clorox could serve as a "cleanliness advisor."

Notably, theaters in Los Angeles may be able to open as early as this Friday. Theaters in New York could take a bit longer to open. Apparently AMC does have some cash on hand, enough to operate through summer and into fall. Nevertheless, the company has stated that it lost $2.18 billion this past quarter, dwarfing its $130 million loss in 2019.

In related to commercial cinema the reopening news, Cinemark says it will begin reopening at theaters beginning June 19 and hopes to have everything operational by July 10. And Regal Theaters also plans the reopening this July. All in all, it looks like there will be a summer movie season after all.

Given human nature and a propensity to ignore rules, get ready for virus spikes in many states.

Most of them could have used such advisors way before Corvid19.

I will definitely be going to see Tenet. It will be my first time going to the theaters in nearly two years, but Nolan films are made for the IMAX.

No question about that. He's certainly not the only director who makes movies explicitly for the big screen, but he is among the biggest proponents of it.

Typical, Take a look at what's happening in many states that rushed into reopening. Numbers up and ICU's at or nearing capacity. Covid can spread all by itself very nicely but it's getting a lot of help from human hubris and frailty. My daughter has stage managed a whole lot of musicals and plays in many theaters. As much as she desperately wants to get back to work she understands that a 150-200 seat theater could become a Covid cluster even with the best precautions taken. But hey you go out and do what you want to. I'll continue to be careful about places that I go to. Until there's an effective vaccine I'm not willing to play Russian Roulette with two live rounds in the cylinder.

AMC must not have consulted AVS threads. Surely they must be doomed.

Theater shortcomings aside, "Coronavirus is my worst nightmare, in some ways more than Ebola or HIV," Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday.

I don't think so. So far the so called experts haven't been very correct, but what do I know? With all the looting/rioting over a week ago, let's use that as a barometer of things to come. Fwiw, I've been working in a C19 icu since April in a major Chicago institute and our numbers are way down. In fact we're closing C19 icu's and re-opening previously closed units.

I am not going to run out to the movies when theaters first open, but my county of 1 million people has been opening up since early May and has a total of 37 COVID deaths and five current hospitalizations, so I may consider it in several months given the reasonably low risk.

It's worth remembering that AMC is owned by Chinese private equity, which means they have leeway to be dramatic just for the sake of negotiating, unlike a publicly traded company.

Be in Chicago is brave enough but I still salute you first responders .

They had a change-of-heart sitting on all that cash.

Quote:
As of April 30, AMC had $718 million in cash, enough to stave off bankruptcy through the fall even if theaters remain closed.

Right there with you. I've seen every James Bond film theatrically, and I'm willing to wait to see No Time To Die at home. The health of my family isn't worth risking for a movie.

Everyone will make their own individual choices. At 71, even with relatively good health, I'm technically in a risk group. My goal throughout this crises has been not to to become a statistic through my own inattention or through the indifference of others. The latter has been challenging at times. In California theaters are going to be under serious restrictions including seating limited to 25% of capacity for each performance along with some pretty stringent sanitary precautions. It may be difficult, with such small box office receipts coming in, for theater owners to make it work financially. I had wondered if, with such seating limitations in place, the big blockbuster movies that have been delayed would be released to these theaters but on the other hand, 25% box office is better than 0% so I'm guessing that we'll see most of the big movies out here.

Thank you for the critical work that you are doing. I was an Army Medic and Operating Room Specialist a million years ago in the late stages of the Vietnam war era so I have a a macro idea of what you folks deal with. Working in an ICU can be a challenge under normal circumstances and even more so in a health crisis. I hope that your numbers continue to decrease. We'll probably know more over the next few weeks and in the Fall.

Soccerdude people like yourself always leave me perplexed, if you’re willing to take the risk to watch a movie in times of a pandemic, so be it.....others take the approach of not doing so for so many valid reasons such as: not risking the health of loved ones, colleagues, others in general, and personal health....all valid and to be respected.....getting back to topic, as an
A-list member, I used to watch around 5-6 movies a month, but considering all the
unknowns about the current situation w/covid-19, I will rather skip a couple of blockbusters in favor of the collective health.....I have a family to worry about, colleagues at work (and their families), and my students’ health (I’m a teacher) as well as their families‘ well being....

I wouldn’t hesitate. We always go to a movie between noon and 2pm. Weekdays only. Never more than 2 - 12 other people in the auditorium. Always wash hands and use sanitizer. Just don’t see a problem. Made a mistake a couple years ago, let friends talk us into going on a Saturday afternoon as the run was ending that weekend. Worst. Mistake. Ever.; Never. Ever. Again. Anytime. Any reason. Virus or none.

If they were to really shorten the release windows or just do away with them...let the cards fall where they will. Then everyone will see what is the most popular and profitable for the movie industry. If going out to a theater is still a desired thing...we will know. That wont happen because the likes of AMC are grasping to a outdated model that in a sense "forces" business their way....they know that if it were up to the consumer how to cosume content, they would be srewed.

The first day of opening will probably the safest day to see a movie because the theaters have not been used in a while (i.e. Virus surface life) and also cleaned...…




….who knows after the first day...

I wonder if the studios would experiment with a simultaneous theater and pay per view release of one of the first movies out of the chute. It might give them a baseline for subsequent releases.

I can't see that happening. AMC banned Universal for even suggesting that after Trolls 2 was successful with a home only release. Here is the latest update on that now that AMC is opening....

Is the whole guaranteed release window some sorta contract between theaters and studios? Seems to me given current conditions....the likes of AMC refusing to show a movie would only hurt them even further and really not mean much to studios since the likelyhood of any "big" movie making anywhere near what it would have is pretty low....studios would want to augment any of that lass with other avenues like streaming.

All we need is for one big ticket movie to take the chance and do a simultaneous release and see what happens. I have a feeling studios and consumers would be thrilled....theaters on the other hand would have to accept reality and sink or swim.

The biggest factor is getting people who dont want to wear a mask to wear a mask, this rebellious idea about not being told to wear a mask is absurd, there are laws about not being able to walk around naked so you are basically being told to wear clothing and yet they are fine with that lol... If everyone simply wore a mask and practiced safe hygiene then we could have reopened a lot sooner, yes there would be still cases but it would be slow enough to manage on a hospital level. Obviously those who are at the highest risk would still have to self isolate and those are intimately close to those people would also have to practice a similar strict regiment for their safety but for the rest just what I mentioned previously would make a significant difference.

As for this well Im still on the fence on if I will go, I will probably give it a bit of time, here peoples experiences and make a decision then as I have my own home theater so its sorta a eh for me, I only really went for date related activities anyways.

Flip side, I did buy a few hundred shares of AMC stock when it was a couple dollars so with the re-open maybe get a boost in stock value and then sell off, we shall see, its already doubled its value so thats nice.
