NEW YORK — AMC Theatres, the nation’s largest movie theater chain, will reopen in the U.S. on Aug. 20 with retro ticket prices of 15 cents per movie.
AMC Entertainment, which owns the chain, said Thursday that it expects to open the doors to more than 100 cinemas — or about a sixth of its nationwide locations — on Aug. 20 with throwback pricing for a day.
AMC theaters have reopened in numerous international countries but have remained shuttered in the U.S. since March. The chain touted the reopening as “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.”
Locally, the world’s biggest theater chain has seven locations in western Pennsylvania: AMC Classic Westmoreland 15 in Greensburg; AMC Classic Delmont 12; AMC Waterfront 22 in West Homestead; AMC Classic South Hills Village 10; AMC Classic Mount Lebanon 6; AMC Classic South Pike 10 in Sarver; and AMC Classic Uniontown 6.
