LEAWOOD, KS (KCTV) -- AMC Theaters announced on Friday afternoon that they are reducing the maximum capacity of each of their theaters by 50% in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The change will begin on Saturday and will run through April 30.
How the theater will approach this is by capping ticket sales for each auditorium to an amount that's half the normal seating capacity.
CEO and President Adam Aron said, "With this action, we are facilitating the ‘social distance’ between guests who still want to see movies on a big screen.”
The company is also ramping up their cleaning protocols by cleaning what they call "high touch" areas at least once an hour.
