NEW YORK, May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Loews Cineplex today announced that it will begin publicizing the start times of feature presentations.

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.
