    NEW YORK, May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Loews Cineplex today announced that it
 will begin publicizing the start times of feature presentations.  Beginning
 with the Company's locations in Connecticut on May 13, Loews movie listings
 will note that the feature presentation will start 10 to 15 minutes after the
 published showtime.  The Company expects to begin including this added
 information in all markets nationwide over the next month.  Loews anticipates
 that patrons will continue to arrive prior to showtime to visit the concession
 stand and select their seats.
     Travis Reid, President and CEO of Loews Cineplex, said, "It has been a
 long-standing tradition to show coming attractions and advertising before the
 feature, and we believe most of our customers understand this practice.
 Recently, however, some of our customers have suggested that we also publicize
 the start time of the movie.  In response to those requests, we are pleased to
 communicate the start time of the overall show, as well as the approximate
 start time of the feature."
