Regal has announced their new planned reopening on August 21. The theater chain was set to reopen in July but with COVID-19 cases rising, many reopenings were postponed.
With Christopher Nolan’s Tenet returning to the release schedule on Thursday, September 3, it has set up the chain to get audiences back. Films including Unhinged, Greenland, and Broken Hearts Gallery are also slated to come to theaters with releases throughout the remainder of 2020, including Wonder Woman 1984, Black Widow, No Time to Die, Soul, The King’s Man and many more.
“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,” said Mooky Greidinger, CEO of Cineworld. “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.”
Regal theatres will enforce the previously announced health and safety measures that adhere to the latest CDC and public health guidelines, including innovative sanitization procedures, new social distancing protocols, and mandatory mask policies for Regal employees and guests.
Regal will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow any changes to regulations or guidance from public health officials.
