Wilsonville-based Movie Gallery Inc. has filed for its second Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection since 2007, announcing plans to close 760 stores.

After the store closures, the Wilsonville company said, 1,906 will remain: 1,111 Movie Gallery, 545 Hollywood Video and 250 Game Crazy stores. But the company said more closures are possible as the bankruptcy progresses.
