After news that Regal Cinemas was set to temporarily shutter all U.S. locations Thursday, the chain confirmed that some California locations would remain open for now.

Regal Cinemas said it would temporarily suspend movie-screening at all 536 of its theaters in the United States after revenue losses amid the coronavirus pandemic.

These seven theatres are located in markets throughout the state and had recently opened. Now, they will remain open to offer audiences in those newly-opened markets an opportunity to see Tenet on the big screen along with other current releases,” the statement from the company read.
