A Quad Cities theater is putting it's curtains down this week.

A cinema employee told Quad-City Times that Regal Moline Stadium 14 Cinema will close this week after Thursday's (7/20) movies are done. It's reflected in Regal Moline's website too, as no showtimes are available for after Thursday.

The closure comes after Regal's London-based parent company, Cineworld, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September 2022 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, finding themselves about $5 billion in debt. It's not been specified if the bankruptcy, which was filed in Texas, is the reason behind the Moline cinema's closure.

If you want to stop by the cinema one more time, films they will be showing on Thursday include:

  • Barbie
  • Oppenheimer
  • Insidious: The Red Door
  • Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny
  • Sound of Freedom
  • Elemental
  • Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
  • Joy Ride
  • No Hard Feelings
  • The Little Mermaid
  • The Miracle Club
  • The Flash

Regal Entertainment Group, which initially owned Regal Moline, was sold to Cineworld for $3.6 billion in 2018. The closure of Regal Moline now leaves Moline and the Illinois half of the Quad Cities without a movie theater. The closest one on the Illinois side, according to Fandango, is in Sterling. Other than that, Illinois QC residents will likely have to cross over into Iowa for the fastest route to a movie theater.

Cineworld also owns Cineworld Picturehouse in the U.K. and Ireland, as well as Cinema City in Eastern and Central Europe, and Planet in Israel. As of Friday, the Quad-City Times reports that Cineworld was being traded on Friday at over-the-counter markets for just $.0042.
