BOSTON (TheStreet) -- Regal Entertainment (RGC), the largest movie-theater operator in the U.S., has slumped 18% this year. Still, analysts at firms including Morningstar (MORN - Get Report) and JPMorgan (JPM) say Regal's shares may surge as much as 77% in the next year.In years past, the theater industry sought to expand the number of screens per theater, an effort to boost profit that actually lowered attendance per screen and led to bankruptcies. Movie-theater operators still have no control over the films themselves, so if there is a season of duds, everyone suffers.
