BRIDGEWATER, NY — Beginning Saturday, AMC will cut in half the seating capacity of every one of its theatre auditoriums, including the AMC Dine-In theatre at the Bridgewater Commons Mall.

“The health and safety of our guests and theatre teams are of the utmost importance to AMC,” AMC Theatres CEO and President Adam Aron said in a statement. “Therefore, AMC is proactively taking action to cut in half the number of tickets that we will make available at all our U.S. theatres. With this action, we are facilitating the ‘social distance’ between guests who still want to see movies on a big screen.”

The seating restrictions will remain in place until April 30, with movies being listed as Sold Out once the theatre has reached 50 percent capacity.

“These are uncharted times in the United States,” Aron said. “We are very closely monitoring the guidance of the CDC. We are complying with all directives from federal, state and local health and government authorities, and with our unilateral move to reduce capacity and increase social distancing we are going beyond what governments are requiring of us.”
