by Michelle QuillenApril 23, 2012

The new millennium has graced us with the technology to bring our favorite childhood heroes to three-dimensional life on the big screen. Comic fans can now gear up for debut of The Avengers with a five Marvel movie marathon hosted by Regal Entertainment Group on May 3.

The event will showcase the following films, shown one after another: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor 3D, and Captain America 3D, with the much anticipated The Avengers 3D wrapping up the superhero set. The duration of this one-day indulgence means ten consecutive hours of Marvel madness.

Admission to the Regal Marvel Marathon is $35. Tickets are on sale online as well as at the 76 participating Regal Cinemas, United Artists and Edwards Theaters among 26 states. Regal’s industry-leading loyalty program, Regal Crown Club, will reward its members with 20 extra more points for each ticket purchased than usually offered for items sold at the box office and concession stand. The admission, which breaks down to only $7 per movie, also includes a free small popcorn.

Senior Vice President for Marketing and Advertising at Regal Entertainment Group, Dick Westerling, is proud to be able to offer this experience to fans of the series.

    I have a Regal present card, went on its website to see what theatres I can use the card at by entering my zip code. The research pulled AMC theatres and Regal threatres. So does this mean I can use the card at AMC locations?

    Newmarket Films set by itself an unusual problem when it made a decision to launch the controversial fake investigative documentary “Death of a President” just six weeks following acquiring the motion picture at the Toronto Worldwide Film Festival very last month.

    But it may well deal with an even more formidable obstacle simply because many key theater chains are refusing to perform the film, which mixes genuine news footage with dramatized segments depicting the fictional 2007 death of President Bush.

    Newmarket, the 12-year-old Los Angeles-based movie financing, manufacturing and distribution company, options to open up the movie Oct 27, just in time for the November 7 election.

    “Yes, it can be controversial,” Newmarket co-founder Chris Ball said. “It’s really a compelling political thriller. In many ways it is sympathetic to George Bush. It talks about a rush to judgment. In no way is it a call for violence.”

    But the country’s biggest theater chain, Regal Entertainment Group, has passed on enjoying the film, citing
    I most certainly would not. I wouldn’t go no issue who the President was.

  • Roslyn Pasley

    I already have gone less to the movies throughout the last few years because of price hikes…I think i may be done after this (Credit Wall Street Journal for this article).

    Major U.S. movie-theater chains, seeking to accelerate the surge in revenues fueled by such 3-D hits as “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland,” are imposing some of the steepest increases in ticket prices in at least a decade.

    The new prices take effect Friday in many markets across the country in theaters owned by such major exhibitors as Regal Entertainment Group, Cinemark Holdings Inc. and AMC Entertainment Inc.

    More from WSJ.com:

    • 3-D Powered Box Office Surge

    • Did the Academy Awards Kill the ‘Oscar Bump’?

    • James Cameron on the Coming DVD Release of ‘Avatar’

    The increases, in one case as much as 26%, vary from theater to theater, but many cinemas are raising prices most—or even solely—for 3-D showings, which accounted for the vast majority of last year’s 10% jump in domestic box-office sales. 3-D movies generated 11% of domestic ticket sales in 2009, up from just 2% in 2008.

    At an AMC theater in Danvers, Mass., a Boston suburb, 3-D ticket prices are jumping more than 20% to $17.50 from $14.50, while the adult admission price for a conventional film will remain at $10.50. At one Seattle multiplex, adult admission is rising to $11 from $10 for a conventional film, to $15 from $13.50 for a regular 3-D showing and to $17 from $15 for Imax 3-D.

    A 3-D Imax movie at New York City’s AMC Loews Kips Bay will cost $19.50, up from $16.50.

    The increases weren’t announced by the theater operators, but were reflected in prices posted Wednesday on movie-ticketing Web sites, such as Fandango.com.

    AMC and Cinemark declined to comment. Comment from Regal wasn’t immediately available.

    The industry’s move comes on the heels of a record-setting year at the domestic box office, with revenue surpassing $10 billion for the first time. Movie attendance in the U.S. and Canada grew 5.5% in 2009, with 1.42 billion tickets sold, the most since 2004. Ticket sales so far this year are running 10% higher.

    Movie theaters typically charged $2 to $3 extra for 3-D movies. But the brisk demand for the premium-priced tickets led many exhibitors to conclude they were still underpriced. About 83% of the record $2.6 billion in ticket sales for “Avatar” came from 3-D and Imax screens. And Walt Disney Co.’s “Alice in Wonderland” also set records when it hit 3-D screens earlier this month.

    While the new prices could boost theater owners’ already buoyant revenues, some industry watchers think they could also spark a consumer backlash. Studios, theater operators, and trade groups have long touted films as a bargain, compared with other forms of entertainment. A decade ago, the average ticket at a multiplex was $5.39, but prices have edged up between 2.7% and 6.1% a year since then, according to the Motion Picture Association of America.

    “The U.S. economy isn’t in the greatest shape, and there is definitely risk here in pushing price too far in a weak economy,” said Richard Greenfield, a media analyst at BTIG LLC, who issued a research report Wednesday on the price hikes.

    Mr. Greenfield said the next month will serve as a test of the strategy. “We’ll have a sense if there is any pushback” from moviegoers, he said.

    Some movie-studio executives expressed concern that the price increases might be too much too soon. “The risk we run is that we will no longer be the value proposition that we as an industry have prided ourselves on,” said a distribution executive at one major studio.

    Other studio executives agreed that the move was risky, but some, like Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution for Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros., expressed support. “The exhibitors are trying to push the needle on ticket prices and see where it ends up,” Mr. Fellman said. “So far charging a $3 or $4 premium has had no effect on consumers whatsoever, so I’m in favor of this experiment to raise prices even more. There may be additional revenue to earn here.”

    Studios are also in a bind. While many are wary of appearing to gouge consumers, they are also facing higher costs as they produce more movies in the technology-heavy 3-D format. Though ticket prices are set by theater operators, the proceeds are split roughly 50-50 with movie studios.

    Five major 3-D films are opening in theaters over the next three months, starting this weekend with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc.’s “How to Train Your Dragon.” That rich selection is one reason theater owners chose to raise 3-D ticket prices now. It may also help set consumers’ expectations for future 3- films.

    Imax 3-D tickets to “Dragon” are expected to cost an average $1, or 7%, more than Imax tickets to Disney’s “A Christmas C

    Is it ok to give bridesmaids gift cards as a gift for being in the bridal party? If I do this, I was originally thinking of a dinner and movie combo (Applebee’s at $10 or $25 or Steak n Shake at $10 or $25 and Regal Entertainment Group at $10, $25, or $50). But then I was thinking about Bath and Body Works (at $10, $25, $50).
    Would these be acceptable and how much should I give each bridesmaid? (Btw, I’m hoping to have enough points by the wedding at Mypoints.com to get the gift cards from there. Is that wrong of me to try to do that? I will actually pay for any that I don’t have enough points for.)
    Should I get the same thing for each bridesmaid or should I change it up some (like different restaurants with the dinner and movie idea or even switching betweeen the two ideas)?

    As I browsed Fandago for the Dark Knight Rises movie showings on Friday, and I noticed some of the theaters say “no passes”. What does that mean? Does it mean that I can’t use my Premiere Super Saver Movie Ticket from Regal Entertainment Group that says valid on any day at any time?

  • jdfan

    I have an online membership with freeshipping.com and they are offering Regal Entertainment Group movie tickets for $6.50 with a minimum purchase of 4. Can this be trusted? My local Regal Theater said that if the tickets were from Regal Entertainment, they would accept them. On this website, you do not select the movie that you want to see, you just buy the tickets and it is a pass for any movie.

    2 Questions:

    1) How do I know that I can use these ticket for non-matinee showtimes?

    2) Can I use these tickets to go to the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2?

    Thank you everyone in advance who answers! Have a nice day!

    For instance, I got Coraline for Christmas, which I discovered was shot in the red/blue format and the shutter glasses I have do not work with it.

    I have a Panasonic Viera 3d tv. Also, do I need to set my tv to 3d in order to watch? When I did that, it seemed to intensify the ghosting I saw on the screen. Will my 3d blue ray player only work on a 3d tv?

    Not looking to spend $150/pair on glasses. Don’t suppose I can hope the “free” glasses from the 3D movies @ the theater will work?

  • Squall Leonhart

    Using blender to create a 3d object and after effects for motion tracking, how could I combine the two? Is there any way to export 3d objects to After Effects from Blender? Do I need to bring the movie into blender, and if so is there any way of motion tracking? Say, for example, I have a scene of a table and the camera tracks around it. I create a 3d mug in blender. What next if I want to put the mug on the table in the scene?

    The usual explanation for our 3d vision is that, having 2 eyes, the crossed result of their slightly different vision creates the 3d effect. However, if I close one eye, I don’t experience any sudden flattening of my vision; nor I think that one-eyed people have problems perceiving depth, do they? So, what’s the REAL mechanism behind 3d vision?

    I’m a full-time graphic designer in the IT industry. I’ve had to recently become familiar with 3D Max. I’m not very good at it and want to improve. I could see myself perhaps working in the video game industry.

    Any suggestions on the skills I should work on to improve my concept art or 3D software skills? Any good books you’d suggest?

    I’ve just got a 3d tv and i wanted to watch a movie which is meant for 3d but something that a 12 year old girl would like. It can be an animation and if it is an animation it doesn’t have to be for 3d.

    I would do all the 3D art but I’m zero in programming. I’m wondering if there is something like GameMaker for 3D environments – with draggable behaviours and the sorts. So I can make a quick sample of a 3D model running around in an environment and interacting with it, without calling a developer.

    Note: I use Cinema, MAX and Lightwave for the 3D modelling. I obviously need to import boned animations, textures, and possibly lighting.
