MovieTickets.com has entered into an agreement with Regal Entertainment Group to offer its ticketing services across all 572 Regal Cinemas theaters with 7,356 screens, including its three main brands: Regal Cinemas, Edwards Theatres, and United Artists Theatres.
“Our new relationship with Regal, the largest theatre circuit in the United States, establishes MovieTickets.com as the leader in the advance movie ticketing category, based on both screen count and number of movie theater chains served,” said Joel Cohen, CEO of MovieTickets.com. “The addition of over 7,300 screens significantly boosts our footprint in the domestic marketplace and magnifies the opportunities for us on a much broader scale.”
“Regal is excited about our relationship with MovieTickets.com,” said Dave Doyle, CIO at Regal Entertainment Group. “Our partnership with MovieTickets.com means greater access to the magic of movie-going at Regal and added convenience for our customers.”
In a joint statement, MovieTickets.com co-founders and co-chairmen Shari Redstone and Mitchell Rubenstein, said, “We could not be prouder to join forces with a leading exhibitor of Regal’s caliber and offer moviegoers around the nation unparalleled ticketing choices and services. As the founders of MovieTickets.com, it's especially meaningful to see us take a leadership position with such a significant addition."
MovieTickets.com will begin deployment of its service across Regal Cinemas, Edwards Theatres and United Artists Theatres today, with the rollout continuing through the end of this month. With the addition of these theaters, MovieTickets.com will be providing advance movie ticketing to over 28,000 screens worldwide, becoming the largest online advance movie-ticketing platform in the world.
