Is it the end of the movie theater?

Riley Sandberg, Contributor

Regal is shutting down forever and you might be wondering why. Well, Regal is closing its doors for many reasons. It might be because there are no new movies coming out or that this pandemic scared everyone from going to the movies.

One of the many reasons why Regal is closing is because there are no new movies coming out. Since the beginning of the pandemic, movie companies cannot make new movies and who would want to sit in a movie theater with a mask on?  Hopefully, not all movie theaters will follow in Regal’s path due to the pandemic. This article states that ” ‘an increasingly challenging theatrical landscape’ due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is temporary, the chain said.” (NPR). Hopefully this is true and they will open back up again.

Hopefully not all movie theaters will shut down due to this virus. Let’s hope that movie theaters will figure something out so we can stay safe and still watch movies in theaters.
