Originally, theaters were set to open July 15th but his became difficult when major markets like New York City and Los Angeles did not allow cinemas to reopen. Many cities have taken longer to open up because of population density so studios are hesitant to release movies without those cities for revenue. As seen in states like Florida and Texas, reopening businesses too early can lead to surges of coronavirus spread and possibly more quarantine.

New Policies

In an effort to keep theaters COVID-19 free, new policies will be implemented such as requiring ticket buyers to wear masks, reduced capacity and better cleaning standards. AMC has operations in 14 countries in Europe and parts of the Middle East but the massive company expects its approximately 1,000 global locations to be back by early August.
