About this Deal
On Tuesday, Regal Cinemas announced it is planning to reopen its theaters by July 10, when Russell Crowe's Unhinged is set to be the first new movie on the big screen since the coronavirus shutdown. Regal, which is owned by Cineworld Group, was forced to shutter its theaters in March to curb the spread of the rapidly spreading virus.
"We are thrilled to be back and encouraged by recent surveys that show that many people have missed going to the movie theater," CEO Mooky Greidinger said in a statement. "Amidst the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, Cineworld's main priority remains the health and well-being of both our customers and colleagues."
The company announced it will be taking preventive measures, like socially-distanced seating, adapted daily screening schedules and revamped cleaning procedures.
The announcement comes a week after AMC Theaters set its own reopening for July. The company said the majority of its theaters will be open by the end of next month.
