Cinemas and movie theaters are closing across Canada, with the closing of more than a dozen of them.

Regal Cinema, which has been in business since 1977, announced Monday it would close by June 29, 2018.

The move comes as a result of a decline in revenue over the past year.

Regent Cinemas is closing for good after 31 years of operating.

Cinemark, which was owned by Alamo Drafthouse Entertainment for 14 years, is closing at the end of June 2018.

There are also plans to shut several other cinemas in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.

A spokesperson for Regal said the company has “committed to the best possible financial and operating strategy” in order to make the most of its assets and reduce costs.

A spokesperson for Cinemark did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Regency Cinemas will close at the beginning of 2019, with a date yet to be determined.

The closure of Regal, which operated the Regent and Regent Cinema theatres in Brampton and Toronto, is part of a broader trend.

A similar trend is underway in Quebec.

Cinemas are closing in other provinces as well, including Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

It’s not the first time the industry has been forced to close.

The Ontario Cinematheque has also announced it is closing, after 20 years in business.
