I love going to a movie theater. And our local theaters have changed so much in the past decade or so with stadium-style seating, and the seats themselves are wide,  reclining, and comfortable.

Plus, watching a movie on a screen that's bigger than your house, gives you the ultimate movie experience. I'm certainly glad that our local theaters are back open after the pandemic forced theaters and just about everything else to close for a long time.

Theater Company  Files For Bankruptcy

Speaking of closings and theaters, the parent company of Regal Cinemas, Cineworld, filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in late 2022, due to the damage caused by the pandemic.

According to CNN, in September of 2022, Cineworld closed a dozen Regal Cinemas and now has announced 39 more theaters nationwide will close beginning February 15th. That will leave around 500 Regal Cinemas left in operation across the country.

Of those 39 Regal Cinemas, six of them are in New York State and two are in the State of Pennsylvania. One Southern Tier Regal Cinema is on the list of 39. That theater is the Ithaca Mall Stadium 14.
