Investing.com --  Cinemark jumped 8% Friday as the company plans to open its theaters to the public. 

Cinemark Holdings Inc (NYSE:CNK) joins AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) in reopening despite dire warnings from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director. 

The U.S. needs to get control of Covid-19 and carefully reopen the country, or the consequences could be devastating, CNN quoted Fauci as saying Thursday in an Instagram interview with actor Matthew McConaughey.

Cinemark will initially show oldies like The Goonies, Back to the Future and Raiders of the Lost Ark at a cost of $5 for adults and $3 for children and seniors. New movies, including Christopher Nolan's Tenet and Unhinged, starring Russell Crowe, will follow.

AMC is charging just 15 cents when it reopens more than 100 theaters on Aug. 20, which is the chain's 100th anniversary. AMC will also bring back titles like Back to the Future and Grease.

Tickets at Cinemark will be limited as capacity is cut to accommodate coronavirus prevention standards, and face masks will be mandatory, except for when chowing down on popcorn and other treats. 

Cinemark is down 63% since the start of the year, while AMC is down 27%.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well.

  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.
