AMC recently announced that they'd be reopening 450 of its 600 theaters on July 15 and initially didn't require masks. AMC CEO and President said to Variety that he didn't want to be part of a "political controversy.
“We didn’t rush to reopen,” AMC CEO and president Adam Aron said. “There were some jurisdictions in some states, such as Georgia and Texas, that allowed people to reopen theaters in mid-May. We opted to remain closed, so we could give the country time to get a better handle on coronavirus. We wanted to use this time to figure out how best to open and how to do so safely.”
