Regal Village Square

Thirty-nine Regal theaters in the U.S., including Village Square in Las Vegas, are set to reportedly close in February, Insider reported on Thursday.

The closures come after Regal's parent company, Cineworld, announced it would file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September. The closures start Feb. 15.

"Cineworld told the court on Tuesday that its plan to reject the leases for some 39 locations would help it save $22 million a year and that it is still working with landlords to preserve other theaters," Insider reported.
