Dozens of Regal Cinemas locations across the country are set to close after the theater’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy late last year. The closures include one of our own Las Vegas Theaters.
The pandemic changed our country – our world – in many ways. One big change was the way we watched movies. The pandemic devastated the movie industry and public screenings as we once knew them.
I have always been a movie lover, and by that I mean actually going to the theater, ordering movie popcorn (the BEST popcorn) and watching it on the big screen. Even the sticky floors couldn’t keep me away!
It seems everyone has their own big screen now, along with every streaming app available – so why go to the theater? Sad question, and one we never dreamed we’d be asking only a few short years ago.
Movie theaters across the country are now closing their doors, because they are just not making money.
According to Business Insider, Regal’s parent company, Cineworld, made the announcement of the 39 Regal Cinemas locations that will close their doors in a new bankruptcy filing last week.
According to Business Insider, in last week’s latest filing, Cineworld informed the court that it would reject the leases for the locations in an effort that would reportedly save $22 million per year.
