WILLIAMSBURG-While Regal Theatres announced its plan to reopen theatres nationwide starting April 2, most Regal cinemas in Virginia won’t reopen until May.

Locally, the Regal Theatre in New Town and the Regal Theatre at Kiln Creek in Newport News are expected to reopen for business on May 21 as well as theatres in Richmond and on the Southside in Suffolk and Virginia Beach.

Movie Tavern in High Street previously announced its reopening plans for April 2 with new safety protocols. AMC Theatres, meanwhile, have been open since last summer including the AMC theatre in Hampton.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
