Dothan movie theaters reopening date announced
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Moviegoers in Dothan will soon be able to head back to the theater and catch a flick.
AMC, the national chain that operates both of Dothan’ movie theaters, announced that the Circle City’s theaters will reopen in just a few weeks.
AMC says they have taken steps to reduce the number of touch points in the theatre, as well as limited their concessions menu to reduce lines and are reducing theater capacity to ensure social distancing. For a full list of measures they are taking, click here.
AMC theaters have reopened in numerous international countries but have remained shuttered in the U.S. since March.
AMC confirmed that Disney’s much-delayed “New Mutants” will debut in theaters Aug. 28, with Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” to follow Sept. 3. Warner Bros. is planning to release “Tenet” a week earlier internationally, including in Canada. A handful of smaller new releases are also planned for late August, including “Unhinged,” a thriller from Solstice Studios with Russell Crowe; and Armando Iannucci’s “Personal History of David Copperfield,” from Disney’s Fox Searchlight.
AMC said Thursday is expects about two thirds of its theaters will be open in time for "Tenet." Several states, including California and New York, are yet to allow movie theaters to reopen.
AMC and other chains have said they will operate at reduced capacity to facilitate social distancing, along with increased theater cleaning and required mask wearing.
