LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — AMC Theatres is reopening it doors on Aug. 20 and will celebrate its history with a throwback to the year it all started by offering "Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices."
Upon reopening, moviegoers can again enjoy the magic of the big screen at 1920 ticket prices. For one-day-only, on Aug. 20, all tickets at AMC will be priced at 15 cents (plus sales tax).
Two AMC Theatres are reopening in the Las Vegas valley -- AMC Rainbow Promenade 10 and AMC Town Square 18.
This is part of a phased plan to reopen AMC in the United States. AMC currently expects to open approximately two-thirds of its more than 600 U.S. theatre locations in time for the September 3 release of Warner Brothers’ TENET, following Disney's Aug. 28 release of THE NEW MUTANTS. The remainder of AMC’s U.S. theatres 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 Aug. 20, bring-back titles such as the special INCEPTION 10th-anniversary event, as well as titles like BLACK PANTHER, BACK TO THE FUTURE, GHOSTBUSTERS, GREASE and STAR WARS: EPISODE V – 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 & drink purchases through the end of October.
In addition to the throwback movie titles that start Aug. 20, guests can enjoy new movie releases almost immediately, which will be available at normal admissions prices.

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.
