Great Falls' AMC Classic movie theater will open on Thursday -- but with a few changes to the moviegoing experience.

As part of AMC’s "Safe & Clean" campaign, all AMC theaters will practice the following protocols:

  • Enforcement of masks upon entry into the facility
  • Shorter concession menus to minimize long lines
  • 40% or less capacity guidelines for theater seating
  • Refills unavailable to minimize person-to-person contact
  • Social distancing required in the facility
  • Masks must be worn unless eating or drinking concessions
  • Employees required to complete daily health screenings
  • Many concession items available upon request, such as food napkins, lids, straws and condiments like ketchup, mustard, relish, buttery popcorn topping and salt
  • Sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available
  • Patrons urged to self-screen and avoid visiting theater if displaying any signs of COVID-19
  • Frequent hand washing encouraged for both patrons and employees

These additions are intended to allow patrons access to movies in a traditional format while also taking precautions against the spread of COVID-19.

According to AMC’s website, most of their theaters will reopen by Labor Day weekend.
