CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Regal Cinemas will close 39 movie theaters across the United States including two locations in Colorado.
Regal parent company Cineworld announced in September it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Business Insider said the 39 closures are on top of 12 theaters already closed. The closures will help Cineworld save $22 million per year, according to Business Insider. CNN reports that Cineworld will reject the leases for the 39 movie theaters beginning Feb. 15.
Cineworld operates 747 locations in 10 countries, with 500 of those theaters in the United States including those under the Regal banner.
"The pandemic was an incredibly difficult time for our business, with the enforced closure of cinemas and huge disruption to film schedules that has led us to this point," Cineworld CEO Mooky Greidinger said in September.
