Regal Entertainment To Offer Speed Racer On IMAX Screens

Knoxville TN -- Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States, today announced that tickets are on sale for Speed Racer: The IMAX Experience. The movie opens Friday, May 9 with a special midnight show at a total of 18 Regal Entertainment Group IMAX® theatres across the country.

"Regal Entertainment Group is proud to offer yet another new IMAX entertainment experience to our moviegoers. Speed Racer is sure to be an exciting adventure made even more thrilling on the enormous IMAX screen," stated Dick Westerling, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising for Regal Entertainment Group.

In Speed Racer, Speed is a natural behind the wheel. Born to race cars, he's aggressive, instinctive and, most of all, fearless. Speed is loyal to the family racing business, led by his father, the designer of his thundering Mach 5. When Speed turns down a lucrative and tempting offer from Royalton Industries, he not only infuriates the company's owner but uncovers a terrible secret—some of the biggest races are being fixed. The only way for Speed to save his family's business and the sport he loves is to beat Royalton at his own game.
