Cineworld Group plc announced today that it is in discussions to purchase Regal Entertainment Group for an effective price of $3.6 billion.

The company is based in London, England and operates theaters under the brands of Cineworld Cinemas, Cinema City, Picturehouse, and Yes Planet, totalling 2,217 screens across 232 locations in the UK, Ireland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, and Israel.

Regal Entertainment Group is based in Knoxville, Kentucky and currently operates theaters under the brands of Regal Cinemas, Edwards Theatres, and United Artists Theatres, totalling 7,315 screens in 561 locations in 43 states as well as Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, and the District of Columbia. It is currently ranked as the #2 movie theater chain, behind AMC Theatres, which is owned by the Chinese company Dalian Wanda Group.

Nothing has happened yet, but given that Cineworld's offer is well above Regal's current value, it would seem that only unforeseen circumstances will keep the two companies from making a deal and possibly changing the landscape of the U.S. movie theater industry in a significant way.
