Sarasota, FL: Regal Hollywood Stadium 20 Reduces Its Screen Count to 11 Ahead of Renovations

Posted on Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 4:50 PM

The Regal Hollywood Stadium 20 in Sarasota, Florida has reduced the number of screens at the theater to eleven, which means that the theater's name is now the Regal Hollywood Stadium 11.

The name change hasn't reached the theater's web site or Facebook page yet, but the change was mentioned in an article published recently in the Herald-Tribune:

Moviegoers flocking to see blockbuster “Black Panther” this weekend at downtown Sarasota’s Regal Hollywood movie theater may be surprised to see its sign has changed from Hollywood 20 to Hollywood 11.

That name change reflects the theater’s reduction from 20 screens to 11 as part of the previously announced $3 million renovations that also include new luxury reclining leather seats.

Recliner and reserved seating have become an increasingly popular trend for both Regal Cinemas and fellow movie theater chain AMC Theatres. Regal upgraded its Oakmont 8 theater in Bradenton with recliner seating in 2014.

Regal Hollywood’s popular $6 ticket prices remain for now, but that could change later, according to a theater employee. An adult ticket for a standard-format screening at Regal Oakmont is $12.19, according to the theater’s website.

The theater renovations will open up approximately 28,000 square feet of space for other tenants in the Main Plaza at U.S. 301 and Main Street. The 8.5-acre property that also includes Old School Bar & Grill and a number of empty office spaces and stores is owned by BBC Main Plaza, a group of three investors that includes Eric Baird, Jesse Biter and David Chessler.

In a statement, Biter said they have not decided exactly what the extra square footage from the theater’s renovations will be used for.

The new seating was teased as "coming soon" in several posts on the theater's Facebook page, with the most recent being today (February 28, 2018), so it appears that they haven't begun yet.

The closest movie theaters to the Regal Hollywood Stadium 11 are the Burns Court Cinema and the Cobb CineBistro Siesta Key. The latter offers luxury recliners, reserved seating, and in-theater dining service from a food and drink menu.
