And now families can support the work they do simply by taking their kids to the movies starting October 18.”The theatrical release exclusively in Regal Cinemas, United Artists and Edwards Theatres will be launched with two “blue-carpet” premieres at Regal Union Square Stadium 14 in New York city on October 15 and Regal L.A.
