Seminole Trail Stadium 9 will offer all of the latest state-of-the-art cinema amenities. Over the course of the past several years Regal Entertainment Group evaluated multiple options for construction in Charlottesville before determining that an expansion and extensive remodel of our existing Seminole Square theatre was the best choice. The location of the existing theatre near the intersection of Seminole Trail and Hydraulic Road makes it a very convenient location for moviegoers. Regal owns the property and has already begun the design process for construction. A diagram of the expanded facility is now on display in the lobby of Seminole Square. “Regal Entertainment Group is very appreciative of our loyal patrons in Charlottesville. Our company has invested in the community with construction of the Downtown Mall 6. The cinema is located at the heart of the city and is host to the prestigious Virginia Film Festival. Regal is confident that now is the right time for an expansion along the heavily traveled Seminole Trail retail corridor ” says Dick Westerling senior vice president of marketing and advertising for Regal Entertainment Group. “A new Regal Cinemas will offer our guests more movies a variety of showtimes and all of the latest theatre amenities.” The new Regal Seminole Trail Stadium 9 will be expanded from the current four-screen Seminole Square in every way covering more than 43 000 square feet when complete. The existing lobby will be transformed into one additional auditorium with a higher ceiling height restrooms and concessions work area. The new square footage will include an enlarged lobby and more screens.
