AMC Streets of St. Charles 9 will be among the theaters to reopen on Thursday. Additional theaters will reopen in the following weeks, AMC said in a news release.

As our guests return on our first day of resumed operations on August 20, we invite them to join us in celebrating a return to the movies, and in celebrating 100 years of AMC making smiles happen with movies at 1920 prices of only 15 cents each,” said Adam Aron, president of AMC Theatres.
