Local residents recently saw one of their most popular movie theaters close, another establishment that felt the impact of the recent pandemic. Cecilia Levine wrote about the shuttered theatre for Daily Voice Bucks.
The Regal Richland Crossing movie theater, located in Quakertown, closed its doors on Thursday, the most recent closure of a Regal theatre due to the financial implications the COVID-19 pandemic had on the industry as a whole.
Cineworld Group, LLC, the chain’s parent company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this month. They are just one of many groups in the movie industry who have taken a large financial toll due to restrictions on in-person movies.
“The pandemic was an incredibly difficult time for our business, with the enforced closure of cinemas and huge disruption to film schedules that has led us to this point,” said Mooky Greidinger, the CEO of Cineworld Group, LLC.
While this theatre has closed, the chain still has 18 theatre in operation through the state, including three in Bucks County. These theaters are located in Doylestown, Langhorne, and Warrington.
