After a five month hiatus, AMC announced the reopening of its U.S. theaters on Thursday. Seven Dallas-area locations are slated as part of the reopening on Aug. 20, including AMC Northpark 15.
AMC is showing a selection of old movies like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and more, with tickets priced at 15 cents plus tax on reopening day— the price of admission in 1920, when AMC was in its first year of business. Keeping with the theme, five-dollar concessions will be available as well.
While the old school movies will continue to screen for $5 a ticket, new releases will be available to watch after opening day.
AMC plans to reduce seating capacity, space out seat assignments in their theaters and allow extra time between shows for cleaning. Masks will be mandatory for both attendees and employees. Hand-sanitizing stations and disinfectant wipes will be available on site.
Other Dallas locations opening Aug. 20 include AMC Parks at Arlington 18, Grapevine Mills 30, Stonebriar Mall 24, Firewheel Town Center 18, Mesquite 30 and Irving Mall 14.
