Maybe they could open with episodes of the Lone Ranger...
just let HIM wear the mask?

This is a sudden turnaround. I thought they were gonna close.

Or just maybe they will open for the required 8 weeks, bring back their employees, thus converting their bailout from a loan to a forgiven GRANT--and THEN close.

I'd bet on that.

No masks because AMC isn't currently showing any Tyler Perry movies.

So when the lights go down and the movie starts take off the mask. Who will know and what are they going to do about it? Nothing.

Sounds really fun to go to filthy movie theater to watch a crappy movie while wearing a suffocating mask that smells like the tuna sandwich I ate yesterday.
