The chain of Edwards Theaters is owned and managed by Regal Entertainment Group (REG), in itself a move theater chain with headquarters in Knoxville, Texas. Emphasis must be made that REG is considered as the second-largest theater chain in the United States (564 theaters with 7,307 screen as of June 2016). REG also operates two other cinema brands aside from Edwards Theaters, namely, United Artists Theatres and Regal Cinemas.
Like its sister brands, all Edwards Theaters cinemas have kept their brands including their indoor branding and exterior signage. But these movie theaters also use the Regal Entertainment Group brand including its name and logo; this is part of the deal upon acquisition. The REG logo is then used side-by-side with the Edwards Theaters brand.

In 1930, William James Edwards Jr. opened the first Edwards Theaters in California. Over time, it became one of the state’s most famous and popular chains of movie theaters. By 1997, when Edwards passed away, the chain consisted of 560 screens in 90 locations. But in 2000, the chain declared bankruptcy after its ambitious expansion plan went under.
After a few changes in ownership, Regal acquired the chain. Regal Entertainment Group was also acquired by Cineworld on February 27, 2018 and, in the process, made it the world’s second-largest movie exhibitor; AMC is the largest.
Things to Know From Booking to Seating
In keeping with the Internet Age, Edwards Theaters provides online ticketing services for its customers. Interested individuals can log on to its official website, book and pay for their tickets, and print their ticket confirmation pages. The online ticketing system obviously makes it convenient to set a movie date with your family and friends sans the lining up at the box office.
Once at the theater, you should show your ticket confirmation page to the ticket attendant who, in turn, will scan its QR code. In case your QR code cannot be accessed, you can provide the ticket attendant with the phone number used in completing your order. The phone number can be used in accessing your order although the conformation number and ticket identification can also be used in this regard.
Customers can also purchase concessions using the online ticketing system. If so, you can just walk to the concession counter – look for the Atom logo – and ask the attendant to scan the QR code on your ticket confirmation page. You can then pick up your ordered concessions.
Patrons can also buy their tickets at the theaters’ kiosks. The admittance procedures, such as the age limit and identification requirements, also apply; local ordinances may affect the details of the admittance policies.
Edwards Theaters, furthermore, will not sell tickets to minors (i.e., 16 years old and under). For patrons between 17 and 20 years old, the chain usually asks for a valid identification, especially when multiple tickets are being purchased. Patrons have to be at least 21 years old to buy several tickets, as well as attend the screening for which these additional tickets were purchased.
Most Edwards Theaters locations offer closed captioning features. Ask the managers about it for more information.
Keep in mind, too, that Edwards Theaters support the MPAA ratings system so admittance procedures for certain movies are strict. For example, children under 6 years old aren’t allowed to watch Rated R movies and ushers can ask suspected to be underage for valid identification for these movies, too.
Children under 3 years old can come in free of charge except in recliner and reserved seating locations. Children 3 to 11 years old are required to pay the child admission price while people 60 years old and above are qualified for senior tickets. Note that not all types of tickets will be available for all movies, such as for R-rated movies.
Edwards Theaters also have handicap-friendly facilities, particularly seating labelled “handicapped”; look for the wheelchair symbol in the seats, which are reserved for disabled persons and their companions. Guests who accompany patrons in an assistant or companion role may be passed in while guests with disabilities can ask the theater employees for assistance.
Every Edwards Theaters location offers its customers the best in movie-going experience. The theaters are spacious, air-conditioned, and well-maintained so every book and cranny looks and feels cleans. The audio-visual system is world-class, too, with high-definition screens combined with speakers that audiophiles love for their great sound.
We suggest joining the Regal Crown Club program, a no-fee rewards program that allows its members to earn credits upon purchase of tickets and concessions. The credits, or points, can be redeemed and used in buying rewards like admission tickets, food and drinks, and movie merchandise. There are also other membership benefits like discounts, coupons, and sweepstakes, as well as sneak previews and special offers.
Edwards Theaters can also be booked for special events, such as birthday parties. Ask the theater manager for details, such as available dates, prices, and package inclusions.
