(ABC4) – With COVID-19 restrictions easing, and vaccination rates continuing to rise, many are resuming activities not done since early 2020. That includes returning to movie theatres.
As you head out to catch a film on the big screen, three major movie theatres are easing their masking requirements.
If you’re heading to a Regal theatre, you will not be required to wear a mask unless required by state and local guidelines, according to the company’s website. If you are in an area where masks are required, they can be removed only while eating and drinking while seated in an auditorium.
Regal says auditorium capacities will be reduced where required by state or county mandates. For more on Regal’s COVID-19 safety measures, click here.
Fully vaccinated guests will not need to wear a mask at AMC Theatres. If you are not fully vaccinated, AMC is asking that you continue to wear a mask throughout the theatre, unless actively eating or drinking.
Like Regal, AMC is limiting auditorium capacities in accordance with state and local guidelines. Social distancing is still encouraged.

At all Cinemark theatres, masks are optional for fully vaccinated guests, the company says online. Masks are encouraged for all other guests, but may be removed when eating and drinking when in your seat.
