Cineworld announced today that it will close all of its movie theaters in the United States this week after the postponement of the new James Bond film left a big hole in schedules. The closures affected 536 U.S.-based Regal Cinemas and 127 Cineworld and Picturehouses in the U.K. The closures will happen on Thursday. Approximately 45,000 employees are affected. Cineworld did not share any plans for a reopening date and claimed it would be watching the situation closely. Many U.S. theaters have reopened after being closed due to the coronavirus in March, but audiences have been slow to return as the country has continued to struggle with coronavirus.
