Regal Cinemas owner confirms it's weighing the closure of U.S. locations

This is good news for efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 but bad news for thousands of theater employees.

After Variety reported that all Regal Cinemas in the U.S. could close as soon as the coming week, Regal parent company Cineworld confirmed that it’s a plan being considered but no decisions have been made yet. The move would also potentially include the “temporary closure” of Cineworld’s UK locations, as the original report also suggested. Cineworld is the largest theater chain in the U.K., and Regal is the second-biggest in the U.S.

We can confirm we are considering the temporary closure of our U.K. and US cinemas, but a final decision has not yet been reached. Once a decision has been made we will update all staff and customers as soon as we can.
