Regal Theatres are Closing in California. Right here’s the Record – NBC Los Angeles

Regal Cinemas is reportedly set to close 39 theaters across the country, and several of those locations are in California.

Four Regal move theater locations were set to shutter in LA, Orange and Riverside counties.

The news comes months after Cineworld filed for bankruptcy in September.

Cineworld is the theater chain’s parent company.

According to court documents filed this week, Cineworld plans to shutter 39 theaters across the country, with closures expected to begin next month. According to Business Insider, which first reported the news, the closures are expected to save the company $22 million a year. Another dozen Regal theater locations were previously closed.

Even National Cinema Day in September, aiming to draw people back to the theaters in lieu of streaming with $3 tickets, did not seem to prevent the closures.
