FRAMINGHAM – AMC Theaters will close nationwide for between six to 12 weeks, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the nation’s largest chain announced today, March 17.
There is an AMC theatre in Framingham, on the Natick line.
The federal government recommended that public gatherings shouldn’t exceed 10 people.
“We are ever so disappointed for our moviegoing guests and for our employee teams that the new CDC guidelines that Americans should not gather in groups larger than 10 people make it impossible to open our theaters,” CEO Adam Aron said in a press release. “We will continue to monitor this situation very closely and look forward to the day we can again delight moviegoers nationwide by reopening AMC movie theaters in accordance with guidance from the CDC and local health authorities.”
Individuals with an AMC A-List theater subscription will have their membership paused during that time.
