Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor
owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States,
announces an amazing offer for members of the Regal Crown Club loyalty
program. With the purchase of a Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog or Corn Dog Bites at a
Regal Entertainment Group theatre, moviegoers who swipe their Regal Crown Club

from hurricane Sandy. Crews are working to ensure that it will be open well
before the annual event.

one of America’s most spectacular and exciting marketing and promotional
events. It is the premier event of all competitive eating contests,” said Don
