Business Booming At AMC Theaters As It Topped Its Post-Pandemic Attendance This Weekend

BURBANK (CBSLA) — It was a great weekend for AMC Theaters.

It topped its previous post-pandemic attendance record.

The theater chain said 3.2 million people went to the movies between Thursday and Sunday in both its U.S. and international locations.

The busiest AMC Theater in the country was right here in the Southland — the AMC Burbank 30.

The theaters suffered big losses after being shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic but reopened in March following news of Los Angeles County moving toward the red tier which would allow movie theaters to reopen with limited capacity.

AMC reopened with enhanced learning and safety protocols in place.
