It will offer $3 movie tickets through May 26. Photo: G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle Movie theaters are not only reopening in San Francisco during the pandemic, new ones are opening.

Regal announced that the long-awaited debut of its newest state-of-the-art theater, the 12-screen Regal Stonestown Galleria ScreenX, 4DX and RPX, will happen Friday, May 21, with a slate of current films including “Spiral: Saw.”

To celebrate the opening, movie tickets will be $3 for all shows through Wednesday, May 26. “A Quiet Place Part II” and “Cruella” open on Thursday, May 27.

“Regal is redefining the moviegoing experience at Stonestown Galleria where guests will enjoy the latest in technology and amenities, including three premium format auditoriums,” said Richard Grover, vice president of communications at Regal, in a statement released Tuesday, May 18. “We always strive to be ‘the best place to watch a movie’ and are excited to provide San Francisco moviegoers a new theatre with top-of-line technology, delicious concessions and memorable experiences.”

It should be a moving experience — literally. The 4DX experience includes enhanced special effects including motion-synchronized seats. The theater’s ScreenX auditorium offers a 270-degree panoramic screen. Also, the Regal Premium Experience (RPX) auditorium features uncompressed surround sound and “bright eye-popping images in a custom-built premium environment,” according to Regal.

The Stonestown theater, which has been under construction for more than two years, replaces the mall’s Macy’s department store that closed in March 2018. The opening could be good timing for Regal: Brookfield Properties, the owner of Stonestown Galleria, announced plans this March to transform the suburban-style mall into a neighborhood with nearly 3,000 housing units, six acres of green spaces and a new 20th Avenue that would become a “main street” lined with shops and residential buildings.

Regal, the Knoxville, Tenn.-based theater chain, a subsidiary of the Cineworld Group, operates five other movie theaters in the Bay Area. Regal’s Jack London in Oakland and Regal UA Berkeley reopened on Friday, May 14, joining the previously reopened Hacienda Crossings in Dublin.

Regal’s Crow Canyon in San Ramon still has not reopened. Also unclear is the status of Regal’s UA Stonestown, which opened on Nov. 10, 1970, with the Barbra Streisand film “The Owl and the Pussycat.”

Unlike other chains, Regal did not reopen theaters at all during 2020 after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown in March, not even during a period in the fall when coronavirus cases were lower and as some theaters reopened before another shutdown in December.

Regal operates 519 theaters — for a total of 6,914 screens — in 42 states along with the District of Columbia and Guam. Cineworld is the second-largest theater chain in the world and in the U.S., behind AMC Theatres.

Today (May 26 2021) was the second day the new Regal Stonestown 12 Galleria in San Francisco was open. David the manger did a great job with all the tech things and the helpers. The big test will be this weekend for Memorial Day May 2021! Here is a list of the seating for all the auditoriums inside as of May 26 2021. Theatre #1 4DX® 140 seats, Theatre #2 96, Theatre #3 116, Theatre #4 130, Theatre #5 106, Theatre #6 129, Theatre #7 47, Theatre #8 47, Theatre #9 ScreenX® 204, Theatre #10 213, Theatre #11 214, and the best and largest screen in Theatre #12 RPX® 296 seats. Good luck to David and his Regal SF team for the brand new Regal Stonestown 12 Galleria Theatre on their big grand opening week. I live about 1 ½ miles away so will be going often. Will be so nice to get out and go to a true movie cinema after a year of watching home theatre streaming. Stop by and see a movie.

Not all the new auditoriums at the new Regal 12 SF have electric true recliner seats. Some just tilt back a little when you lean back. The current seat count is listed in my report. The 4DX® screen auditorium Theatre #1 is still being tested and when they find a movie when ready It will open. Too bad It did not make this opening week but It is coming soon.

The new 4DX® screen in Theatre #1 is now open showing movies May 29 2021.
