Regal has announced the closure of all locations until further notice, starting March 17, 2020, as a precaution "amid the current circumstances" surrounding the coronavirus pandemic that is now affecting the United States and the rest of the world.

The press release issued by Regal was brief, and it is included here in full:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., March 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal announces closure of all theatre locations starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020, as a precaution amid the current circumstances. All theatres will remain closed until further notice.

"Any time, at any Regal, it's our goal to provide a safe and healthy environment for our employees and guests," stated Mooky Greidinger, Cineworld CEO. "At this time, we have made the difficult decision to close our theatres. We value our movie-loving customers and have no doubt we will be serving them again as soon as possible with a full slate of Hollywood blockbusters. The Cineworld Group and Regal Theatres are strong, standing on solid ground and our continued goal is to be The Best Place to Watch a Movie!"

Regal will continue to update the status of all theatres on our mobile app and online at REGmovies.com.

About Regal:
Regal, a subsidiary of the Cineworld Group, operates one of the largest and most geographically diverse theatre circuits in the United States, consisting of 7,155 screens in 542 theatres in 42 states along with the District of Columbia and Guam as of February 29, 2020. We believe that the size, reach and quality of the company's theatre circuit provides its patrons with a convenient and enjoyable moviegoing experience. We are committed to being "The Best Place to Watch a Movie!" Additional information is available on Regal's website: www.REGmovies.com.

Many theaters are restricting seating, performing extra cleaning, and taking other precautions in order to keep moviegoers safe, including closing down temporarily. The situation is very fluid, and changes and updates continue to happen in real time. (For more on this, please see Curious How Theaters are Handling Coronavirus Concerns?)

You can find what movie theaters are still open and playing movies by going to the Movies section and finding the movie you are interested in. However, since theaters are moving at a rapid pace, please confirm that the theater you want to attend is expecting to be open for the show in question by visiting their official web sites, Facebook pages, and Twitter feeds for official notifications.

If you're not able to attend a theater to see a movie, there are plenty of great movies to watch at home! Please see our Movie Downloads and Streaming Options page in the Gift Shop for some possibilities!
