Movies return to AMC Kent Station

Limited seating, masks required

Movies are back, although with limited seating, at AMC Kent Station 14, 426 Ramsay Way.

Here are the requirements due to COVID-19.

Masks are required for guests and crew throughout the theatre. Your mask must cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly around your face and chin. Neck gaiters, open-chin bandanas and masks with vents or exhalation valves are not acceptable at this time. If needed, masks are available to purchase for just $1.

In the auditorium, masks are still required, but may be removed while enjoying food and drinks. Protect yourself and others by wearing a mask before, during and after your movie.

Auditoriums are at 25% capacity, based on state guidelines. In auditoriums with AMC Signature Recliners, the new ticketing technology will block the seats on either side of your selection, and there is already enough space between rows to allow for social distancing. In auditoriums with traditional seating, AMC’s technology will block the seats surrounding your selection. In auditoriums that do not offer reserved seating, please make sure to leave adequate distance between yourself and other guests.

Once you’re in the auditorium, if you are uncomfortable in your reserved seat, feel free to move to another socially distant seat after the movie starts, or see an associate for assistance or a refund.

Where tickets are sold, credit, debit or AMC gift cards are preferred to reduce contact, but cash is accepted, and may be used if needed to purchase a gift card for movie treats.

For shorter lines and quicker service, AMC has temporarily simplified food and drink selections. Classic movie treats like AMC Perfectly Popcorn, Coca-Cola Freestyle, hot dogs, candy, MovieNachos, AMC KidsPacks and more are available.

AMC, whose locations closed in March, reopened its 14 Washington locations on Oct. 16 after Gov. Jay Inslee eased restrictions. King County remains in Phase 2, which requires the seating capacity at 25%.
