More than 7,000 movie screens will be dark in the U.S. this weekend as the Regal theater chain said it will shut down all 536 locations on Thursday. The closure reflects “an increasingly challenging theatrical landscape” due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is temporary, the chain said.
 
The closure affects locations in Natomas, El Dorado Hills, and Davis.
 
Roughly 40,000 Regal employees in the U.S. now face a work furlough. The company opted to shut down operations after the James Bond franchise’s No Time to Die was shelved until 2021.
