LEAWOOD, Kan. — AMC Theaters announced Tuesday that they are temporarily closings all of their theaters to help with “social distancing” and prevent the spread of coronavirus.

“All AMC theatres are temporarily closed in accordance with local and federal guidelines,” the theater chain posted on their website. “They will re-open when those guidelines allow.”

AMC previously told FOX4 it’s also taking aggressive steps to keep its theaters clean.

In a tweet by the company, officials said they would close the theaters for 6-12 weeks and pause list memberships.

Along with cleaning theaters between showings, at least once per hour, AMC said staff was cleaning “high-touch” areas like kiosks, counter tops, restrooms and handrails.
