DANBURY — Get your popcorn and facemasks ready.

Big theater movies are coming back to Danbury next week after a four-month coronavirus hiatus.

AMC Danbury 16 plans to reopen on Aug. 20 with a full cast of safety and sanitation measures to protect against COVID-19 infections, according to AMC Theaters, the nation’s largest movie theater chain.

That means moviegoers will be required to reserve seats and order movie snacks ahead of time so food and drinks are ready for pickup at showtime, the company says.

It also means the movie theater will enforce social distancing norms and carry out new sanitation routines.

To get people used to movies in the COVID era, AMC will open in Danbury and 100 cinemas across the country next week with one-day ticket prices of 15 cents per movie.

The chain calls it “Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices.”

Opening-day movies include “Ghostbusters,” “Black Panther,” “Back to the Future” and “Grease.”

AMC has reopened theaters abroad but has been set back reopening in the United States due to a summertime rise in coronavirus cases, especially in the South and the West.
