Regal Cinemas has announced their plans to close all of their 536 U.S. theaters indefinitely.

According to a statement released on Twitter the suspension of operations will take place at close of business on Thursday.

In response to an increasingly challenging theatrical landscape and sustained key market closures, Regal will suspend operations of all theaters at close of business on Thursday, October 8, 2020 until further notice. 

See the original tweet below.

It’s no secret the movie industry is suffering greatly as a result of the pandemic. 

Many studios have pushed back their big budget films to 2021 and 2022 and the films that are making into theaters are not seeing the box office numbers they want and/or need.

Dang, Regal Cinemas.
