MADISON, Wis. — A notice posted online indicates that all AMC Theatres across the country are temporarily closed in order to meet local, state and federal guidelines associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s unclear how long the closure will last.

Madison currently has one AMC location at Hilldale Shopping Center.

On Monday, Marcus Theaters introduced new social distancing arrangements at all of its theaters.

This news comes after ticket sales plunged to its lowest levels in the last 20 years at North American movie theaters.

Wisconsin currently has 72 confirmed cases of coronavirus. On Tuesday, Gov. Tony Evers ordered a statewide ban on all gatherings of more than 10 people and closed all bar and restaurants, except for delivery and pickup orders.
