A 2020 photo by Jay L. Glendening for the L.A. Times that appeared with "Coming....Someday. What's Next For the Movies?," an April 30, 2020 Times special report. Much of the content in the 11 articles was about what has to happen to get production started but Ryan Faughnder's article "How will movie theaters make customers feel safe after coronavirus?" was more about the theatre end of the business.

More Information: See the Cinema Tour page for 12 photos by Chris Utley. Cinema Treasures also has a page on the Regal.

The L.A. Times had a March 2014 article on Regal's plans to install a 4D auditorium in partnership with CJ Group, a Korean company. In 2015 the complex got a liquor license.
