As AMC Theatre locations begin to reopen, movie-goers will only need 15 cents to see a film on opening day.

In a statement released on Thursday, the chain offers "movies in 2020 at 1920 prices" on Thursday, Aug. 20, when more than 100 of the chain's U.S. locations will reopen.

"As part of AMC’s Centennial Celebration, all AMC U.S. theatre locations that open on August 20 will offer all available seats for all movies that day for the 1920's admission price of 15 cents each," the statement released by AMC says.

AMC says during the following two weeks, around 300 more of its movie theaters will reopen.

During its opening-day promotion, AMC will play classic films, such as "Ghostbusters," "Black Panther," "Back to the Future" and "Grease," which will continue to play after opening day for the reduced price of $5 per ticket.

AMC's Evansville location at 5600 Pearl Dr in Evansville, Indiana, is slated to reopen on Aug. 27. 

The AMC movie theater in Madisonville, Kentucky, will open back up on Sept. 3.

As AMC theaters reopen, new safety protocols will be in place.

Masks will be required for all patrons and staff throughout the theatre. Masks may be removed while eating or drinking in the theater, though AMC is asking everyone to remain masked during all other times.

Auditorium capacity has also been reduced to 30% or less. In AMC theaters with traditional seating, every other row will be blocked off.

AMC says to avoid shared contact with food handling, cash transactions won't be accepted at the concession stand or bars. AMC says cash can be used to purchase a gift card for food and drink.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
