The Festival Cinemas had opened June 1, 1984. Signature Theatres had originally bought the theater from Mann Theatres in April of 2000. Signature Theatres gave it a $2.5 million renovation, which added stadium seating and reduced the capacity from 2,900 to 1,900.

I drove by this theater last week – it’s still called the Festival Cinemas. No mention of Regal anywhere on the building. There’s definitely an ‘80s vibe to the place.
Drove by this theater again last week and snapped a couple of photos. I did notice Regal’s logo on the concrete trash can outside and on one of the floor mats inside.
I loved going to this theater back in the 80’s,when I was stationed at Fort Hunter Liggett. Great theater!!!!
