When AMC announced it’s reopening plans two weeks ago, CEO Adam Aron got himself in hot water when he told Variety he didn’t want to make a political issue, and enforce the wearing of masks in areas of the U.S.
That said, AMC would still enforce the wearing of masks in areas that were still mandating such COVID-19 precautions.
A social media backlash erupted and Aron reversed course, creating a full circuit wide restriction that all guests to AMC Theatres will be required to wear masks.
Alamo Drafthouse had already decided before AMC they would enforce a circuit wide requirement that all guests must wear face masks, with Regal Cinemas following AMC’s lead!
Cinemark continues to uphold its policy that they will enforce its guests to wear masks only in those areas of the country that require it.
