Cineworld, which owns Regal Cinemas, plans to give up its lease of the theaters on February 15.
WASHINGTON – Regal Cinemas plans to close dozens of its theaters across the country next month.
The move comes four months after Cineworld Group LLC, the British company that owns Regal Cinemas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States.
The plan to close 39 additional cinemas in the coming weeks was revealed in Cineworld’s bankruptcy filing on Tuesday.
The company plans to stop renting theaters on February 15.
Cineworld said in a statement that it estimated closing those theaters would save about $22 million annually.
