Regal Cinemas is trying to lure customers out to a night at the movies with reduced rates for “Art” films. The list of films the chain posted on Twitter include Trainspotting, No Country for Old Men, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Slumdog Millionaire, La La Land, Call My By Your Name, Whiplash, Still Alice, Pain and Glory, and Moonrise Kingdom. There’s a little of something here for everyone and the pricing is an added bonus. Regal says that an adult ticket for these films at Regal Cinema Art Theaters is $5, and $3 for children. That’s a nice deal, and pricing like that is going to be key in getting people back into theater seats after the coronavirus pandemic. A lot of industry voices suspect that things won’t truly get back to normal until 2021. So, different companies are going to have to get creative.
“Welcoming theatergoers back to our cinemas will be a celebration for not only our team and our industry, but most importantly for the fans who have been anxiously awaiting the year’s upcoming releases,” Mooky Greidinger, CEO of Regal’s parent company Cineworld said in a press release. “With the health and safety of our staff, customers and communities as our top priority, we are happy to invite audiences to return to the timeless theatrical experience that we have all dearly missed.”

A while ago, Regal had planned for a July 10th opening, as it is now August, you can see the effects that the coronavirus pandemic had on their reopening strategy. Like other theater companies, they’re trying to balance that process with limiting customer harm.
Back then they said, “”Regal announces plans for the reopening of theatres starting Friday, July 10. Reopening plans include a wide range of new health and safety measures based on guidelines provided from the CDC and other public health organizations. The plan also includes safety measures based on feedback received from employees and moviegoers they have deemed most important for their return.”

When are we getting the movies that were supposed to be out for the summer

Would be too sick
Let’s get some 60s or 70s classics on this list? Films 90s kids and younger didn’t get to see in the theater…if at all.

Not a fan
Yikes. None of those films are big screen necessities. Did you pick them out of a hat?
