AMC Theatres, the nation’s largest movie theater chain, will reopen in the U.S. on Aug. 20 with 15-cent movie tickets.

  • AMC Coon Rapids 16 
  • AMC Eden Prairie Mall 18
  • AMC Inver Grove 16
  • AMC Rosedale 14

Seating capacity will be significantly reduced to comply with state guidelines and allow for social distancing.
