AMC Theaters plans to reopen its areas in July

AMC Theaters plans to open all 1,000 theaters worldwide next month after closing its doors in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Reuters, the world's largest cinema chain with limited capacity and blocked seats will work to meet the guidelines for social distancing.

AMC opens in time to show films like Christopher Nolan's Tenet, which premieres on July 17, and Disney's Mulan, which premieres on July 24.

Digital Trends turned to AMC to comment on the reopening of its cinemas. We will update this story when we hear something.


Just last week, the cinema chain said it had "significant doubts" about staying in business due to significant revenue losses from the pandemic.

"We are effectively not generating revenue," the company said in a regulatory filing.

According to preliminary results for the company in the first quarter, AMC Theaters is expected to lose between $ 2.1 and $ 2.4 billion in revenue in the first quarter of 2020.

Like most other industries, the film industry has had great success due to the outbreak of the corona virus. According to The Hollywood Reporter, worldwide box office revenue could cost $ 20 billion due to COVID-19.

Tenet, Mulan, and Wonder Woman, which are slated to be released on August 14, are stuck with a theatrical release, though other films have made their debut on demand.

AMC recently fought over one of these films, Trolls: World Tour, after a manager at Universal Studios indicated that the studio could release films on demand while they were still in the cinema.
