Programs and business practices

The Edwards Theatres Grand Palace 24 in Houston, Texas
The Edwards Theatres Grand Palace 24 in Houston, Texas
  • Corporate Box Office: Regal's CBO sells "VIP Super Saver" and "PREMIUM Super Saver" discount tickets in the quantities of thousands to corporations for various uses. Companies may use these as rewards for their employees, or may re-sell them, as Costco Wholesale Corporation does. The main difference between VIP and PREMIUM tickets is that PREMIUM tickets can be used on "No Pass" attractions, while a $1.50 upgrade fee must be paid on the VIP ticket to do so. The New Jersey Department of Education gave PREMIUM Super Saver tickets out to students that participated in surveys.
  • National CineMedia: National CineMedia, jointly owned by Regal Cinemas and AMC Theatres, orchestrates advertising by playing video ads in theatre lobbies as well as box-office handouts and posters. Common products advertised are NBC television or Web sites.
  • Regal Crown Club: The Regal Crown Club is a free customer loyalty program. Members earn points based on how much they spend at box office and concession (typically 12 points per box office purchase, and 2 points per concession purchase). These points accrue and every 40 points members earn a free small popcorn, free small soda, or free movie ticket. The Regal Crown Club currently has over 4 million members. This program also offers $1 candy on Monday and Free Popcorn Tuesdays
  • Fandango.com: Regal Entertainment Group uses Fandango.com as its primary provider of movie tickets online. Customers can purchase tickets on the site and then pick them up at the theatre, from either the box office or an in-theatre machine (similar to an ATM). The service carries a $1.00 surcharge, and customers must bring the credit card used to buy the tickets with them to pick them up. Many Regal theatres have TV screens that show Fandango commercials among other previews, and there are usually Fandango commercials in the theatrical trailers as well.
