"Regal is so fortunate to work with these great charities and be able to give back during Carlsbad's grand opening festivities," says Russ Nunley, vice president of marketing and communications for Regal Entertainment Group. "These activities not only add to our celebration but also give us a way to show our gratitude to our fans throughout the San Diego market while also placing our new showplace in the spotlight."

The experience of going out to the movies continues to evolve as Regal raises the bar. Regal Entertainment Group is invested in providing amenities that further enhance the moviegoing experience.  At Carlsbad 12, guests will enjoy a new state-of-the-art theatre featuring Regal King Size Recliners providing more room, comfort and true luxury.  Each recliner has an electric control for multiple positions and features padded footrests.

Carlsbad 12 also offers the Regal Crown Club to reward frequent guests. Regal fans can access their card through their mobile device for easy access on-the go by downloading the Regal Movies app. Users can program their favorite theatre, gather movie information, select showtimes and purchase tickets. The Regal Crown Club is the number one theatre loyalty program in the country, allowing patrons to accumulate credits at the box office and concession stand to earn free popcorn, soft drinks and movies.  Free membership is available at the theatre or online. Moviegoers can also stay connected through Regal Cinemas' Facebook page and Twitter account, @RegalMovies.

Available at all new and existing Regal Entertainment Group theatres is a cutting-edge technology, the Sony Entertainment Access System, to assist moviegoers who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or low vision. The system includes specially designed lightweight eyewear for guests who are deaf or hard of hearing 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 via a pair of headsets for guests who are blind or have low vision. The access glasses and audio headsets allow moviegoers 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 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."
