AMC, Cinemark and Regal movie theaters drop mask requirements for vaccinated guests

U.S. & World

(WJW) – Masks are no longer required for people who are vaccinated at the three main movie theater chains in the U.S.

AMC Entertainment, Cinemark, and Regal Cinemas announced the decision two weeks after the CDC said fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks in any setting.

“In accordance with CDC guidelines, masks are not required for guests who are fully vaccinated,” AMC said on its website.

“If you are not fully vaccinated, we ask that you continue to wear a mask throughout the theater unless actively enjoying food or drinks.”

Similar updates to mask policy were made on Regal and Cinemark websites.

All three chains said they would follow state and local mandates on mask wearing, which may be different from the CDC guidelines.

All employees at AMC, Regal, and Cinemark locations will still be required to wear a face mask.

Check with your local theaters to see their policies before you go.
