Naples, FL: Regal Hollywood Stadium 20 - Naples Set to Open in "Early 2nd Quarter"

Posted on Monday, March 18, 2019 1:58 PM

The Regal Hollywood Stadium 20 - Naples in Naples, Florida closed in September 2017 after sustaining damage from Hurricane Irma. At the last update, which was in March 2018, the plan was that the theater would reopen before the start of the summer movie season in 2019.

The Naples Daily News published an article recently that provides an update on how the renovations are going and what is being done to the theater:

In addition to repairing hurricane damage — which amounted to repairing part of the roof and replacing water-logged drywall, ceiling tiles and insulation — Regal Entertainment Group decided to completely renovate the 23-year-old building off Naples Boulevard. The cinema basically was gutted to its shell and rebuilt inside and out.

“The theatre is being completely revamped as part of the refurbishment after the hurricane. Regal is adding new technologies that you’ll be excited to experience, including 4DX and IMAX,” emailed Heather Peters, director of public relations, from Regal’s corporate headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee. “I look forward to sharing more details in the near future.”

At the end of December, Peters said Regal was planning to reopen the Naples theaters in the early second quarter of this year. With construction workers scrambling to finish extensive work yet to be done, the company is adhering to this plan.

“We are still targeting early second quarter, but an exact opening date is yet to be determined,” Peters said last week. “I will be in touch soon once information is available. Thank you for following up.”


The eventual grand reopening of the cinema will reveal an expanded concession area and menu, the addition of a bar, conversion of traditional flip-chair theater seats to rockers or recliners, and the creation of the first IMAX theater in Collier County.


A 117-page “luxury seating conversion” plan filed with the county’s Growth Management Department shows that eight of the theaters will have recliners. Eleven theaters — including the 227-seat IMAX theater — will have rocker-style seats. One 144-seat theater will be equipped with 4DX motion seats, a state-of-the-art technology providing an immersive cinematic experience with up-down, left-right and backward-forward tilting movements and environmental effects to mimic on-screen actions such as flying and driving.

Until the theater reopens, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Silverspot Cinema - Naples and the Paragon Pavilion Cinemas 10.
