For the first time in six months, Regal Cinemas will be reopening its US theaters to the public in April, according to an announcement from its parent company, Cineworld Group.

Cineworld Group said the phased reopening will kick off with a limited number of cinemas opening for “Godzilla vs. Kong” on April 2 and going wider with “Mortal Kombat” on April 16, the company announced Tuesday.

Cineworld also plans to reopen theaters in the U.K. in May, in line with current government guidance.

“We have long-awaited this moment when we can welcome audiences back to our Regal theatres and restore our essential role within the communities we serve,” said Mooky Greidinger, Chief Executive Officer of Cineworld. 

The company has reached a multi-year agreement under which films from Warner Bros. Picture Group will be shown in Cineworld’s cinemas in the US as of their opening.

Beginning in 2022, Warner Bros. theatrical releases will have a 45-day window of theatrical exclusivity, with certain provisions, Cineworld announced.

“We are very happy for the agreement with Warner Bros. This agreement shows the studio’s commitment to the theatrical business and we see this agreement as an important milestone in our 100-year relationship with Warner Bros.” Greidinger added.
