Opening dates announced for Loudoun’s Regal movie theaters

The national chain shuttered its theaters last year due to fallout from the pandemic.

Local theaters have opened and closed a number of times during the up and downs of the coronavirus pandemic. For some time now, most of the theaters in eastern Loudoun County have been open, at least partially. The CMX Village 14 (former Cobb) at the Village at Leesburg. The Alamo Drafthouse including its pop-up drive-in theater. Even the AMC Loudoun Station 11 (former Starplex), which has been opening on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The hold-out has been the area’s Regal Theaters, which include the Regal Fox at the Brambleton Town Center and the Regal Dulles Town Center. This is even more noteworthy because the Regal Fox has just completed a major makeover, adding a smoothie bar, a coffee bar, a cocktail bar and more, when Regal shuttered its theaters nationwide. (See our report here.)

Now we have opening dates for the Regal movie theaters. According to Regal, the Dulles Town Center theater will re-open on May 14. And the Brambleton theater will open a week later, on May 21.

The one that’s not on the re-opening list — the Regal Countryside in Sterling. Opened originally in 1996, county leaders approved a plan last year to tear down the theater and put up some townhome-style residences in its place. So it appears the Regal Countryside may have shown its last movie.

    my kid worked at the Regal Countryside. Lots of his friends did too. Too bad it’s closing for good but he told me a couple of years ago about the rumor to raze it and put Townies there. It is old and outdated and the movies are ones that I enjoy but I can see how they can’t compete with the DTC theater.

    There w b 166 townhouses+apartments on top driving the number of car trips to over 600 on Tripleseven Rd a narrow country road I have personally met w the developers who hv agreed in writing to adding a lane to this road @Palisades&restriping Cromwell to make 3 lanes instead of the current 2 this will help move traffic at both intersections Developers have also agreed to some other items to help minimize the impact on Calverts Glen & Countryside. But the fact is that this is going to make it more difficult for current residents to get in & out of their respective communities oh, & the County is insisting on adding a Bike lane to this narrow road!
