AMC Entertainment has now decided to keep most of their theaters open for business even though other movie companies are shutting down.
AMC is able to remain open after their deal with Universal Pictures for their new films. For the time being, 80% of AMC theaters are open and more theaters are open overseas. Cineworld, the owners of Regal announced that they would be closing their doors for now.
The chain is planning on opening more of their theaters, especially in New York and California when approved by the state and county officials to do so. President Adam Aron stated:
"We take great comfort in knowing that literally millions of moviegoers have already visited our theatres. They have done so in part because of our AMC Safe & Clean protocols, developed in consultation with Clorox and faculty of the Harvard University School of Public Health. Our guests are telling us that our theatres have never been cleaner, and that they recognize the great effort AMC is making to keep them healthy and safe."
