Safety & Health Policies

We’ve stepped up our game to reduce touch points and protect your safety. Here are our key policies, advised by Clorox®, the world leader in all things clean, and renowned public health experts.

Masks Required for All

Masks Required for All

Because we care about your health, masks are required for all guests and crew throughout the theatre, regardless of vaccination status and regardless of local or state guidelines. If needed, masks are available to purchase for just $1.

In the auditorium, masks are still required, but may be removed while enjoying food and drinks. Protect yourself and others by wearing a mask throughout your visit.

Select theatres have local or state mandates which require masks be worn at all times. Therefore, no food or beverages are permitted. Please check your local theatre page for theatre specific details.

Reduced Auditorium Capacities

Reduced Auditorium Capacities

All AMC, AMC DINE-IN™ and AMC CLASSIC® auditorium capacities are reduced to meet or exceed state or local guidelines.

In auditoriums with AMC Signature Recliners, our ticketing technology will block the seats on either side of your selection, and there is already enough space between rows to allow for social distancing. In auditoriums with traditional seating, the seats in front of, behind and beside your selection will be blocked. In auditoriums that do not offer reserved seating, please make sure to leave adequate distance between yourself and other guests.

Once you’re in the auditorium, if you are uncomfortable in your reserved seat, please see an associate for assistance.

Social Distancing Standards

Social Distancing Standards

Please remember to maintain social distance throughout your visit. Follow the directional signs and the reminders posted throughout the theatre for guidance.

Hand Sanitizer & Disinfecting Wipes Available

Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes & Hand Sanitizer Available

Take advantage of the sanitizer and Clorox® disinfecting wipe stations throughout the theatre, especially at concessions, before and after pouring your favorite Coca-Cola Freestyle® drink.

Cashless Transactions

Reduce Touch Points

Credit, debit or AMC gift cards are strongly preferred at the theatre, but cash is accepted. Mobile food & drink ordering is now available at all theatres nationwide, and we encourage guests to order ahead and buy their tickets online or on our app.

Self-Check Your Health

Self-Check Your Health

If you have symptoms such as fever or cough, or have come in contact with someone with symptoms, please take care and come back to see a movie with us when you are well.

Thoroughly Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

Upgraded MERV 13 Air Filters

Maximized Fresh Air Flow & MERV 13 Filters

Fresh, outdoor air is constantly circulated in our theatres by opening HVAC dampers, running supply fans and by running exhaust fans 24/7. Our filtration systems have also been upgraded beyond the industry standard of MERV 8 to MERV 13 filters. MERV 13 filters capture the tiniest of droplets, which could contain the COVID-19 virus, whereas the industry standard MERV 8 filter does not.

HEPA Filter Vacuums

HEPA Filter Vacuums

We routinely vacuum carpeted areas using vacuums with HEPA filters, which are proven to trap 99.97% of airborne particles.

Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers

Disinfectant Sprayers

We added extra time between movies so our crew can take extra care cleaning and disinfecting the auditorium before your show.

Routine Cleaning & Disinfecting

Routine Cleaning & Disinfecting

Throughout the day, common areas and high touch points are routinely cleaned, sanitized and disinfected.

Questions? The answer may be in our FAQs.

AMC is closely monitoring federal, state and local guidelines and our policies and procedures will continue to evolve accordingly.
