The chain of Regal movie theaters in the US is temporarily closing once more due to the pandemic of COVID-19.

According to a report from KXAN, Regal theaters will begin temporarily shutting down all of their theaters in the US beginning on Thursday.

The ongoing pandemic has caused many businesses to close their doors, and since entertainment is typically non-essential, it's not hard to see why they're facing such difficulties.

A number of films that were scheduled for release have been pushed back or released straight to streaming services. Several theater companies had been struggling before the pandemic, but this might be what takes many theaters completely out the business.


The following statement was released to Variety on Monday:

“In response to an increasingly challenging theatrical landscape and sustained key market closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cineworld confirms that it will be temporarily suspending operations at all of its 536 Regal theatres in the U.S. and its 127 Cineworld and Picturehouse theaters in the U.K. from Thursday, 8 October 2020.”
