Regal Cinemas Sets Re-Opening Date for Aug. 21

By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer

Regal Cinemas plans to open their doors again Aug. 21, just in time for Warner Bros.’ U.S. release of TENET over Labor Day Weekend.

Mooky Greidinger, CEO of Cineworld said,

“Welcoming theatergoers back to our cinemas will be a celebration for not only our team and our industry, but most importantly for the fans who have been anxiously awaiting the year’s upcoming releases. With the health and safety of our staff, customers and communities as our top priority, we are happy to invite audiences to return to the timeless theatrical experience that we have all dearly missed.”

With making health and safety a priority, Regal is implementing sanitization procedures, social distancing and mandatory mask policies.

Regal is the second largest theater chain in the U.S. over 7,000 theaters around the country.

AMC, the biggest theaters chain, announced last week that they will open in mid-to-late August, but hasn’t given a specific date yet.
