Regal Cinemas has announced plans to close 39 U.S. theaters, including its location at 199 E Montgomery Ave in Rockville, according to a report today by Business Insider. The Regal Rockville opened on November 6, 1998. Insider reports that Cineworld, the parent company of Regal that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2021, plans to “reject the leases” of the 39 locations starting February 15. The company expects the move to save them close to $22 million a year and “the debtors are hopeful that these negotiations will lead to lease concessions and modifications that will obviate the need for rejection and enable additional theater sites to remain open.”
The Regal locations at 20000 Century Blvd in Germantown and 900 Ellsworth Dr in Silver Spring were not listed in the article and are expected to remain open. Representatives at the Rockville theater could not provide any further information at this time and a closing date has not been announced. Other area local locations scheduled to close include Gallery Place Stadium 14 (Washington, DC), and Bowie Stadium 14 (Bowie, MD).
