Regal Owner, Universal Pictures Ink Shortened Theatrical Window Pact

Cineworld, corporate parent of No. 2 exhibitor Regal Cinemas, May 13 signed a shortened theatrical window deal with Universal Pictures that affords the exhibitor a share of revenue from premium VOD distribution.

The pact is similar to Universal’s deal with AMC Theatres and Cinemark that grants the exhibitor exclusive 17-day screening of movies. If the title generates less than $50 million at the box office, Universal can offer it into homes for a $19.99 digital rental (PVOD). If the box office exceeds $50 million, the theatrical window is extended to 31 days.

Regal has a separate agreement with Warner Bros., affording the exhibitor a 45-day window beginning with the studio’s 2022 theatrical slate.
