Regal Cinemas, one of the largest movie theater chains in the US, has announced a plan to show classic movies and fan favorites when they reopen instead of blockbuster titles.
According to Variety, the theatre chain plans to show favorites such as “The Empire Strikes Back,” “Jaws” and “Black Panther.”
The move comes just weeks before the release of “Mulan” on July 24 and “Tenet” on July 31.
In accordance with the CDC’s social distancing guidelines, all theaters will have a 50 percent reduced capacity when they reopen on July 10. In addition, Regal will increase cleanings between showings as well as introducing contactless payment.
Employees and customers will also be required to wear gloves and facemasks.
On July 17, The Nolan series, featuring “Inception” and “Interstellar” will be screened along with the 2017 live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast”.
The National Association of Theatre Owners has also issued guidelines for the reopening of movie theaters.
