Things are about get big inside the movie theater — like, real big.
After all, Regal Cinemas will be resuming operations at select locations to coincide with the opening of Godzilla Vs. Kong, the company announced in a release.
This is news because Regal’s parent company, Cineworld, had closed all Regal chain locations for six months.
“We have long awaited this moment when we can welcome audiences back to our Regal theaters and restore our essential role within the communities we serve. With the health and safety of our customers, staff, and communities as our top priority, we continue to take all the necessary precautions and abide by our CinemaSafe guidelines to confidently provide a safe and comfortable experience,” Cineworld CEO Mooky Greidinger said in a statement.
“With capacity restrictions expanding to 50% or more across most U.S. states, we will be able to operate profitably in our biggest markets. We will also be monitoring developments closely in the UK and across Europe as we set to gradually reopen across the world in line with local government guidance.”
MovieWeb.com wrote that Godzilla Vs. Kong is the most anticipated release since Wonder Woman 1984 came out in December.
As a result, Regal is opening in select locations starting April 2, or just a couple days after Godzilla Vs. Kong debuts on March 31. It will continue to open theaters in the weeks that follow.
“With theaters open and the box office on the up-and-up, blockbusters can soon make their way out into the world once again,” MovieWeb wrote.

You know, if it wasn’t for the fact that you just know they’re going to cram a heavy handed “climate change” message into this, I’d probably actually go see it. As it is, I’ll just watch at home for free instead.
They suddenly increased King Kong in size x4 for this movie. He was never as big as Godzilla. In the the 1976 movie he’s 50 feet tall, 2005 movie he’s 30 feet tall, 2017 he’s 100 feet, and in 4 years he’s been on some serious HGH at 400 feet tall out of nowhere.
The whole premise of this movie is so dumb so I doubt they aim for any consistency.
Went to a movie the other day at the theater for the first time in a good while. Though I became lazy with the home releases, it really was nice to get back into a movie theater, eat some really shitty popcorn, and have my soda poured and handed to me by the overgenerous 16-year-old. Though they want you to keep a mask on outside of eating, keep a box of popcorn in your lap and enjoy the show.
That fake butter is the best
This seems like one of those movies where the plot will be bad enough, and the special effects good enough, that seeing it in a theater actually makes some sense. Hopefully people get back to normal and it rakes just because it’s available and people are going out.
