“We are extremely excited to open a Regal location in the beautiful Issaquah
Highlands area. Boasting both IMAX and RPX capabilities, our guests will enjoy
the maximum movie experience,” says Neal Pinsker, senior vice president of
operations for Regal Entertainment Group. “Seattle is a very important market
to Regal and we’re proud to continually grow with the community.”

The preview events, occurring June 29 to July 1, offer $2 movies. On Saturday
June 29, the theme is “Regal’s Recipe for Hope” benefitting the Issaquah Food
Bank with recent Hollywood hits along with selected food-themed films. On
Sunday, June 30 “Read It and See It at Regal” features book-related films
benefiting the charity Newspapers in Education. Monday, July 1 benefits
ArtsFund of Seattle during “Regal Superheroes for a Cause” for a
superhero-inspired day at the movies.

“It is always a pleasure to give back to local charities during a theatre’s
grand opening. The activities add to our celebration and are representative of
our role as a new community gathering place,” says Ken Thewes, chief marketing
officer for Regal Entertainment Group. “Giving back to community organizations
is another way we are able to show our gratitude for the loyal patronage from
so many Pacific Northwest moviegoers.”

A cutting-edge technology available exclusively at Regal Entertainment Group
theatres is 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 at the Guest Services counter or 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.”

At Issaquah Highlands the Regal Premium Experience (RPX) presents movies the
way filmmakers intended with powerful, uncompressed surround sound and bright
eye-popping images in 2D and 3D. Guests will enjoy the custom-built premium
environment featuring elegant and luxurious seats. Regal managers express
their confidence in the presentation with the RPX Guarantee: “You’ll agree
it’s the best experience or your next movie is free.”

An IMAX digital projection system at Issaquah Highlands will showcase
Hollywood blockbusters that have been digitally re-mastered into the unique
image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience. Films are projected on a
specially-designed IMAX screen that is slightly curved and moved forward
coupled with a proprietary digital surround sound system to immerse the
audience.

Issaquah Highlands Stadium 12 IMAX & RPX also offers the Regal Crown Club to
reward frequent guests. Regal Crown Club is the number one theatre loyalty
program in the country. Through the Regal Crown Club patrons 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.

The 12-screen theatre can accommodate more than 2,500  moviegoers. Patrons
will enjoy digital projection in every auditorium, stadium seating, with each
row elevated for an unobstructed view, and high-back rocking chairs featuring
cupholder armrests which move out of the way to form seats for two.

For added convenience, Regal offers a variety of ticketing options at the box
office and through the Regal Mobile App available for iPhone and Android
users.
