Regal Cinemas will shutter two New Jersey movie theaters and 37 others across the country after filing for bankruptcy.

The list of closures includes theaters in 20 states and Washington D.C. Regal Cinemas will shutter New Jersey locations in Mays Landing (Regal Hamilton Commons) and Phillipsburg (Regal Pohatcong).

Exact closing dates have yet to be announced.

Cineworld, Regal Cinemas’ parent company, announced last September it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

This week in a new bankruptcy filing, Cineworld said it plans to reject the leases of the 39 theaters starting Feb. 15.

Regal Cinemas is the second-largest cinema chain in the United States.

There are more than 500 theaters nationwide and 11 in New Jersey.
