Regal in Anchorage to Close

A movie theater in Anchorage is expected to close. 40 regal locations are set to shut down across the country — that includes the one here at Tikahtnu Commons. Moviegoers we spoke to in Anchorage say — they’ll miss the place.

“We are a military family so the area was just up and coming when we were leaving 9 years ago. So its been fun to come back and watch it come full circle and the movie theater was one of the first things that started that we really saw. Its been fun to watch the whole area grow and sad to see it go for sure but hopefully something will replace it in the near future.”

News of the closures comes after Regal’s parent company — Cineworld — filed for bankruptcy last year.
