AMC Disney Springs 24 overview

AMC has announced that it will push back plans to reopen its theatres, including the AMC Disney Springs 24.

Instead of a July 15 relaunch, AMC now plans to open 450 of its theatres on July 30 with the remaining expected to be open by the end of the following week.

When AMC reopens, auditoriums will be reduced to 30% capacity or less, based on municipality guidelines. In auditoriums with traditional seating, every other row is blocked off. In all auditoriums, including those wider AMC Signature Recliners, guests will be asked to leave an empty seat between yourself and other guests.

Most importantly, AMC will require guests to wear masks inside the theaters.

Common areas and high touch points will be routinely disinfected throughout the day. There will be extra time between movies so that auditoriums can be cleaned between each showtime.

Electrostatic disinfectant sprayers and vacuums with HEPA filters will now be used throughout the building. Also, HVAC filters have been upgraded to MERV 13 wherever possible.

To reduce contact, large popcorn and large fountain drink refills will be unavailable. Items like napkins, lids, straws and condiments will be available by request.

A reopening date for the AMC at Disney Springs has yet to be confirmed, and the planned July 24 debut of Disney's summer movie Mulan has been pushed back to late August.
