AMC said it would open 98 percent of its US theaters by Friday and that by March 26, 99 percent of its doors would be open. This week’s reopening will include all 25 of its Los Angeles county theaters and all eight of its San Diego county theaters in California. AMC said it foresees 52 of its 54 locations in the state to be open as of March 22 “once proper local approvals are in place.”
AMC theaters are reopening with limited capacity, which vary based on state regulations. For example, California said movie theater capacity must be limited to 25 percent or 100 people, “whichever is less,” while in New York the limit is simply 25 percent.
