As United States businesses begin to reopen, movie theaters are starting to come back online as well.

Even though AMC Theatres has announced that its locations plan to remain closed until closer to the release dates of films such as Tenet on July 17th and Mulan on July 24th, other movie theaters across the country are slowly beginning to reopen.

As reported by Variety, as of Friday, May 15th, there were about 200 movie theaters open in North America, which is nearly double the number of open locations than the week prior. Making up a large portion of the total, there are about 150 drive-in theaters open, while about 50 brick and mortar locations are open.

The states that make up the majority of open theater locations are Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. However, many other movie theaters may take a similar approach as AMC and remain closed until closer to summer movie premiere dates.
