While many Americans want nothing more to get back to normalcy, the COVID-19 pandemic continues, as there are new confirmed case spikes in states like Florida. AMC Theaters was planning on opening on July 15, but has decided to shift its plans, once again.
The month of July was going to see two major releases during the month: Mulan and Tenet. However, last week both films were delayed once again. Mulan was pushed back to August 21 and Tenet moved to August 12. Because of this, AMC Theaters is pushing back its opening date now to July 30, according to Deadline.
“We continue to devote extraordinary resources into our plan to operate our theaters with a hyper commitment to the safety and health of our guests and associates, notably in the United States through our new AMC Safe & Clean initiative,” AMC CEO and president Adam Aron said in a statement. “Our theater general managers across the U.S. started working full time again today and are back in their theaters gearing up to get their buildings fully ready just a few weeks from now for moviegoers. That happy day, when we can welcome guests back into most of our U.S. theaters, will be Thursday, July 30.”
