Moviegoers choosing RPX are selecting the equivalent of first class at the movies,” stated Russ Nunley, Regal Entertainment Group Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “We are thrilled to add this incredible cinema to our already impressive pair of Edwards Theatres in the Houston area.”

The theatre is modern in every way with RealD® 3D and a unique auditorium equipped for RPX – the Regal Premium Experience. RPX presents movies the way filmmakers intended with powerful, uncompressed surround sound and bright eye-popping images in 2D and 3D. Guests will enjoy the custom-built premium environment featuring elegant and luxurious seats with high-back headrests.

The access glasses and audio headsets allow guests to individually enjoy the cinema experience in a relaxed, natural way without the inconvenience of separate screening times or special seating. This technology is exclusively available at Regal Entertainment Group theatres.

Guests desiring such accommodations need only request the Sony Entertainment Access System at the Guest Services counter or from any manager.
