NEW YORK, N.Y. (WWNY) - Regal Cinemas, which has a theater in Watertown, says it will reopen its U.S. locations on April 2.

Its 549 locations across the nation have been dark now for nearly 6 months.

When doors open, attendance will be limited.

In New York state, Governor Cuomo is allowing theaters to reopen at 25 percent capacity with a limit of 50 people per screening.

The manager of Watertown’s Salmon Run Mall told 7 News she spoke with the manager of the local theater, who suggested the Watertown opening may be more toward the end of May.
