When the first wave of more than 100 AMC theatres reopens Thursday, all tickets at AMC will be priced at 15 cents (plus sales tax). The prices are part of the chain’s 100th birthday celebration.

TAMPA – AMC is planning to reopen more than 100 movie theaters Thursday (Aug. 20), with additional theaters to open during the next two weeks.

Five of the theaters scheduled to reopen are in Tampa: AMC Highwoods 20, AMC Regency 20, AMC Veterans Expressway 24, AMC Westshore Plaza 14, and AMC Woodlands Square 20.

As currently planned, tickets on reopening day will be 15 cents each, plus tax.

In 1920, the Dubinsky Brothers began operations with a single movie screen in Kansas City, MO. That single screen would serve as the foundation for what is known today as AMC Entertainment, the largest theatrical exhibitor in the U.S, Europe the Middle East, and in the world.

One hundred years later, as AMC reopens its doors to U.S. moviegoers for the first time in more than five months, AMC is celebrating its history with a throwback to the year it all started by offering “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.”

When the first wave of more than 100 AMC theatres reopens Thursday, moviegoers can again enjoy the magic of the big screen at 1920 ticket prices. For one day only – Thursday (Aug. 20) – all tickets at AMC will be priced at 15 cents (plus sales tax).

This is part of a phased plan to reopen AMC in the U.S. A

MC currently expects to open about two thirds of its more than 600 U.S. theater locations in time for the Sept. 3 release of Warner Bros.’ Tenet, Disney’s Aug. 28 release of The New Mutants. The remainder of AMC’s U.S. theaters will open only after authorized to do so by state and local officials.

The one-day 15 cent ticketing celebration kicks off several promotions that guests will find as they return to AMC around the country.

After Thursday, bring-back titles such as the special Inception 10th anniversary event, as well as titles like Black Panther, Back to the Future, Ghostbuster, Grease and Star Wars: Episode Five – The Empire Strikes Back will be priced at only $5. AMC is also offering an array of $5 food and beverage treats, including regular popcorn, regular Coca-Cola Freestyle drink and KidsPacks, through the end of October. And all AMC Stubs members will earn double points on all ticket and food and drink purchases through the end of October.

“We are thrilled to once again open our doors to American moviegoers who are looking for an opportunity to get out of their houses and apartments and escape into the magic of the movies,” said Adam Aron, CEO and president of AMC Theatres: “ As our guests return on our first day of resumed operations on Aug. 20, we invite them to join us in celebrating a return to the movies, and in celebrating 100 years of AMC making smiles happen with movies at 1920 prices of only 15 cents each.”

In addition to the throwback movie titles that start August 20, guests can enjoy new movie releases almost immediately, which will be available at normal admission prices. For full title and showtime information, moviegoers should check their theatre’s webpage on

Upon returning to the movies, AMC officials said guests can expect to experience AMC’s comprehensive health and sanitation program: AMC Safe & Clean, which was developed under advisement of current and former faculty from Harvard University’s School of Public Health as well as the Clorox Co.

AMC Safe & Clean components include significant reductions in the maximum tickets available for each showtime and seat blocking in reserved seating auditoriums to allow for appropriate social distancing between parties, enhanced cleaning procedures that include extra time between showtimes to allow for a full, thorough cleaning and nightly disinfecting utilizing electrostatic sprayers, use of high tech HEPA vacuums, upgraded air filtration efforts including the use of MERV 13 filters wherever possible, new guest and associate safety protocols that include mandatory mask wearing by all guests and associates, hand sanitizing stations throughout the theatre, and the availability to guests of disinfectant wipes.
