Update: Since 2 p.m. Wednesday, Hurricane Florence has dropped to a Category 3 storm.
With a Category 4 storm descending on south-eastern and mid-Atlantic states, going to the movies probably isn’t the first thing on people’s minds. And movie theater chains have that same thought.
AMC, Regal and other theater chains are set to shutter 50-60 locations over the next few days depending on the intensity of Hurricane Florence. And while the top priority for everyone in the region is to stay safe (our thoughts are with the readers and /Film writers in the area), it’s our job to talk about movie news. So: how is Hurricane Florence expected to affect this weekend’s box office returns and how are theater chains and studios preparing?
