There was a lot buzz about Tenet. We will even say it is probably the most extremely anticipated launch of 2020, though that is a low bar given the state of the film exhibition enterprise today.
In the meantime, AMC has been reopening its cinemas in phases since having to shutter all of them throughout the preliminary levels of the outbreak. Earlier this week it promised that round 70% of its U.S. areas have been to have their lights on by at present.
As it’s depending on cinema attendance, AMC has suffered enormously from the shutdowns engendered by the pandemic — no marvel it is so wanting to get again into enterprise.
Social distancing measures have been put in place on the firm’s cinemas. That, plus the lingering skittishness of individuals towards crowd conditions for worry of getting contaminated, makes me suppose a full-blooded migration again into film theaters is not going to occur. But it surely’s an encouraging (re)begin for AMC as an organization, therefore at present’s bullish response.
