WASHINGTON — Regal Cinemas is planning 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 theaters in the coming weeks was revealed Tuesday in a filing from Cineworld's bankruptcy case.
The company plans to reject the theaters' leases on Feb. 15.
Cineworld said in the filing it estimates closing these theaters will save approximately $22 million annually.
Around 500 Regal theaters currently remain across the country, according to its website. It is the second-largest movie theater chain in the U.S. behind AMC Theatres, which has around 950 theaters globally.
California and New York have the most Regal theaters closing, with 7 set to shutter in California and 6 closing in New York.
