The Regal Biltmore Grande 15 or, as I look at it, the butt-numb-a-thon theater. Even though this theater is closer than the Carolina, I typically only come here for the marathons they show. I have attended the Dark Knight marathon (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises), the Lord of the Rings marathon (all three films in extended editions), and the Die Hard marathon (I should have left after the first four – the fifth was terrible). On May 2nd, I will be there for the Iron Man marathon (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers 3D, Iron Man 3 3D).
The marathons run $20-$30 and include a coupon for a $5 medium combo. I always upgrade the drink to the large bucket (a ridiculous 64 oz.) so it lasts all day. Sad piggy that I am, I also look forward to the flight of mini-hot dogs on marathon day. I look at these as mini-vacations and always look forward to the next one.
The Biltmore Grande has nice stadium seating throughout, clear, large screens, and good audio. Their RPX auditorium has an even larger screen with even better audio. Unfortunately there is an upcharge for RPX and Biltmore Grande’s ticket prices are expensive for this area.
Regal has a FREE reward card. You get one point for every dollar spent but are limited to twenty points a day. Every fifty points nets you a reward – the usual rotating drink, popcorn, movie ticket (not good on 3D, RPX, or new movies). They have $2 Candy Mondays and $2 Popcorn Tuesdays.
Seniors and children are $7. Matinees are $7.50. Evenings are $10.25. 3D upcharge is $3.50 (highest in area). RPX 3D surcharge is $5. Biltmore Grande does not have a kitchen but has a wide range of concessions. Concessions are a bit pricy.
Biltmore Grande is a nice choice if top-notch audio and video are of paramount importance to you. It is high quality without the bells and whistles and they charge a price commensurate with that.
