Regal movie theater locations will begin reopening on July 10, 2020, according to an announcement made recently by parent company Cineworld Group. All its locations were closed in March in response to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic that swept the country and the world. While the virus is still present, most states are implementing a phased reopening plan of businesses, with health-related guidelines intended to increase health safety.

The announcement mentioned that employees will be sanitizing each seat in each auditorium after each movie with "electrostatic ‘fogger’ equipment" that they say will be highly effective, using a non-toxic disinfectant that dries very quickly. High-contact points throughout the theaters will be sanitized and floor markers will assist moviegoers with physical distancing.

Additionally, the following safety measures are going to be in place when the theaters reopen on July 10:

REGAL EMPLOYEES

  • Regal employees will undergo daily health screenings including temperature checks where mandated.
  • Employees will be required to wash hands at minimum every 30 to 60 minutes, dependent on job role.
  • Where required by local governance, all employees and guests will wear masks.

THE LOBBY

  • Greeters will be located in the lobby to assist guests with new procedural changes.
  • Guests will be encouraged to proceed to their auditorium as soon as possible, and exit the theatre in a timely manner at the conclusion of their movie
  • Wall mounted sanitizer dispensers will be available on either side of the main entrance.
  • Vending machines and water fountains will not be available for use.
  • Where required by local governance, arcade games will be closed.

THE CONCESSION STAND

  • Every other register will be closed to maintain social distancing.
  • A reduced menu offering will be temporarily available
  • Self-service condiment stands will be closed.
  • Refills on large drinks and popcorn will be suspended.
  • Locations featuring diners, restaurants and in-theatre ordering will have these services temporarily suspended.
  • Locations with bars will remain open for walk-up service only.

THE AUDITORIUM

  • Where required by state or county mandate, auditorium capacities will be reduced to 50%.
  • Our reservation system will maintain two empty seats between groups (1 seat at recliner locations) to maintain proper social distancing throughout the movie.
  • At theatres where performances are non-reserved, you will be requested to leave two seats between groups.
  • Group sizes will only be limited where required by a state or county mandate.

The company currently operates more than 500 locations in the United States under the brand names of Regal, Edwards, and UA.
