Simon Property Group, Inc. announced today that Regal Entertainment Group is bringing a state-of-the-art movie complex to the Shops at Nanuet. Regal Nanuet Stadium 12 & RPX (Regal Premium Experience) will open in 2013. Regal joins as the second tenant disclosed for the new shopping center.
Regal’s RPX concept presents movies with uncompressed surround sound and eye-popping images in 2D and RealD 3D, which is digital 3-D. Each of the theaters will feature stadium seating with unobstructed views, digital projection in each auditorium, “a giant immersive screen illuminated by high-quality digital projectors and completed with a 9.1 pinpoint surround sound system.”
“Regal Entertainment Group is eager to join this inviting and vibrant town center that’s under construction in Nanuet,” stated Russ Nunley, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Regal Entertainment Group. “Our theatre’s location on the development’s main street and alongside all the new merchants will make this a great place for shopping, dining and entertainment.”
Other amenities include retractable cup holders that can be moved to form seats for two and multiple ways to purchase tickets: a state-of-the-art box office, Regal Express kiosks for fully-automated ticket purchases and through the Regal App and REGmovies.com.
