New York CNN —

Regal Cinemas is closing 39 more theaters across the United States.

The decision comes four months after parent company Cineworld filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after the pandemic devastated the industry and public screenings.

In a filing this week, Cineworld said it plans to decline leases for the 39 theaters beginning February 15, which would save the company $22 million annually.

Cineworld is working with landlords to keep its other cinemas open. After these closures and a previous round in September 2022 that closed 12 locations, there are around 500 left.

“The debtors hope these negotiations will result in lease concessions and changes that avoid the need for denial and allow additional theater locations to remain open,” Cineworld said in this week’s filing.

When Cineworld announced its decision to file for bankruptcy last year, the company said it wanted to reduce debt. The company believes filing for bankruptcy will “strengthen its balance sheet and provide the financial strength and flexibility to accelerate and capitalize on Cineworld’s strategy in the cinema industry.”

Regal Cinemas is the second largest theater chain in the United States after AMC Theaters, which has 950 locations according to its website.
