The announcement to close the theaters came four months after Cineworld filed for bankruptcy in September of 2022. The reason for the bankruptcy filing is largely related to the impact that the pandemic had on the theater industry.

Mohegan Lake Theatre to Be Saved From List of Closings

On February 15th, court documents filed in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas Houston Division saw that 30 of the leases were removed from the list. Cineworld will instead attempt negotiations with the landlords of each of these theatres.

The 30 theatres that were removed are not out of the woods yet. According to the filing, Cineworld is still able to authorize a lease rejection for each theater at a later date. The fait of these theaters is still up in the air, but for the time being, the Cortlandt Town Center theater will still be listing regular showtimes for movies.
