Shoptalk: Parent company to temporarily close Edwards Grand Teton theater – Post Register


Posted: October 7, 2020 at 11:52 pm

The Associated Press reports that shares in the company that owns the Regal, Cineworld and Picturehouse movie theaters fell as much as 58% after it said it will temporarily close the venues because delays to the latest James Bond film left it with few blockbusters to attract customers during the pandemic.

Regal operates the Edwards Grand Teton theater in Idaho Falls.

Cineworld Group Plc said Monday that 536 Regal cinemas in the U.S. and 127 Cineworld and Picturehouse venues in the U.K. would close on Thursday. Some 45,000 employees are affected, AP reported.

The company has high debts and is, like the wider industry, struggling with the effects of the pandemic, AP reported. It said that with major markets such as New York closed and no guidance on when they will reopen, studios have been reluctant to release their pipeline of new films.

This is not a decision we made lightly, and we did everything in our power to support safe and sustainable reopenings in all of our markets including meeting, and often exceeding, local health and safety guidelines in our theaters and working constructively with regulators and industry bodies to restore public confidence in our industry, Mooky Greidinger, CEO of Cineworld, told the AP.
