AMC Entertainment is celebrating 100 years this month by offering admission for the same price of a ticket when the theater first opened back in 1920. All tickets will cost just 15 cents on August 20 when 100 locations reopen.
The movie theater chain started out from humble beginnings with its first movie house in Kansas City, Missouri. Now it’s the largest movie exhibitor in the world. AMC’s doors have been closed for since early this spring when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Now it’s reopening on its 100 year anniversary with added safety and health precautions.
“We are thrilled to once again open our doors to American moviegoers who are looking for an opportunity to get out of their houses and apartments and escape into the magic of the movies,” said CEO Adam Aron. “As our guests return on our first day of resumed operations on August 20, we invite them to join us in celebrating a return to the movies, and in celebrating 100 years of AMC making smiles happen with movies at 1920 prices of only 15 cents each.”
AMC’s first phase of reopening will include 100 theaters across the country with 300 more locations set to reopen within the following weeks, just in time for Warner Bros’ film Tenet scheduled to premiere September 3. The movie’s release date has been delayed again and again, so we’ll see if the September release date sticks.
