The head of AMC Entertainment is hoping that its theaters that have been closed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic will reopen by mid-June. That prediction is mentioned in an article published today by The Hollywood Reporter:

"We said we expected to be shut for six to 12 weeks. That would be May 1 to mid-June. That might be more the right timing," Aron on Tuesday told CNBC's Squawk Alley.

His prediction fell at the outer edge of AMC's original range. Aron added that no one could forecast cinema reopenings with precision.

The exec on Tuesday insisted Americans were likely to flock to the local multiplex once the COVID-19 crisis had abated. "I think if we've learned anything in the last two weeks it's people … just so want to get out of their houses. I think we’re all feeling cooped up and want to get out and have life return to normal," Aron asserted.

But he also cautioned that Americans needed to reach the end of the coronavirus outbreak before they stopped sheltering in their homes and movie theaters could reopen.

A spokesperson for Cineplex, Canada's largest cinema chain, said it was too early to speculate on when its own screens would reopen.

AMC closed all 600+ locations in the United States on March 17, 2020. Click the Read link below to view the full article.
