Regal Entertainment Group Hosts Grand Opening Celebration For Waugh Chapel Stadium 12 & IMAX

Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States, is celebrating the grand opening for Waugh Chapel Stadium 12 & IMAX. Activities include preview events with $2 movies for three full days to benefit local charities. The official grand opening will be September 14 with first-run features including Resident Evil: Retribution in IMAX 3D and Finding Nemo 3D. Moviegoers will also enjoy free popcorn and soft drinks with each paid admission Friday, September 14 through Thursday, September 20.

“Waugh Chapel is a tremendous open-air retail center in a thriving community between Baltimore and DC. Right in the center of this town center is our new state-of-the-art Regal Cinemas which includes the impressive IMAX Experience,” stated Russ Nunley, Regal Entertainment Group Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “Regal Entertainment Group is thrilled to open this remarkable entertainment destination for the moviegoers of Anne Arundel County.”

The new theatre is modern in every way, equipped with RealD® 3D and the IMAX Experience. IMAX digital projection systems showcase Hollywood blockbusters that have been digitally re-mastered into the unique image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience as well as original documentary-style IMAX content. Films are projected on a specially-designed screen that is slightly curved and moved forward to further immerse the audience. Images of exceptional quality, combined with IMAX's proprietary digital surround sound system and patented theatre geometry create “The IMAX Experience," making audiences feel as if they are IN the movie.

Another cutting-edge technology available exclusively at Regal Entertainment Group theatres is Sony’s Entertainment Access System to assist deaf, hard of hearing, blind and low vision moviegoers. The system includes specially designed lightweight eyewear for deaf and hard of hearing guests to privately view closed captioned text directly in their line of sight for both 2D and 3D movies. This assistive technology also includes a wireless receiver that provides access to descriptive audio tracks for blind and low vision guests via a pair of headsets. 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.

Guests desiring such accommodations need only request the Sony Entertainment Access System at the Guest Services counter or from any manager. Captions and descriptive audio can only be accessed by use of this equipment and it is not available to other moviegoers. To select films offering this service, online showtimes will note: “Accessibility devices available.”

Everyone is invited to enjoy this new entertainment destination on Monday, September 10; Tuesday, September 11; and Wednesday, September 12 while helping local charities. These Preview Events will feature $2 movies, $2 popcorn and $2 soft drinks with proceeds benefiting Boys and Girls Clubs of Anne Arundel County, Got Your 6 – Military Support, and Grants 4 Teachers of Anne Arundel County.
