The movie theaters are reopening soon!
After nearly a year of being closed, Los Angeles movie theaters are aiming to open their doors next week, with multiple spots looking to reopen Monday.
AMC Theatres, the world’s largest cinema chain, is reportedly reopening two of its biggest Los Angeles-area locations — AMC Burbank 16 and AMC Century City 15! They will open for business Monday afternoon. According to KTLA, AMC’s 23 remaining L.A. County cinemas will be ready to reopen on March 19.
Cinemark announced its Long Beach location will start screening movies again on Saturday 03/13, adding its other Los Angeles County theaters will begin reopening Monday.
This follows news that Los Angeles County officially cleared the way for businesses including theaters, indoor dining rooms and gyms to reopen next week with strict limits on capacity and other restrictions such as mask-wearing.
Movie theaters in counties listed in California’s second-most restrictive tier of reopening (which Los Angeles falls under)— the red tier — can open indoor auditoriums at 25% capacity with reserved seating and at least six feet of distance in all directions between any groups. Counties that enter the less-restrictive orange tier can move up to 50% capacity.
