AMC Theaters won’t require customers to wear face masks to avoid ‘political controversy’

The AMC Theaters CEO Adam Aron says the chain would not require patrons to wear face masks —where not required by local governments— when it reopens theaters because it “did not want to be drawn into a political controversy,” Variety reported.

Aron told Variety he would be “wearing a mask and leading by example,” but thought it would be “counterproductive if we forced mask wearing on those people who believe strongly that it is not necessary. ” He added that the company believes the “vast majority” of its guests will wear masks. Aron said AMC will not conduct temperature checks on patrons, but will monitor employees for fevers and other coronavirus symptoms.
