In your theatre do you use an intercom or walkie-talkies?

Walkie-talkies, portability is the main reason.

When I was with Regal ('04) we were using walkies with ear pieces which enabled us to talk almost hands-free as we did not have to remove the radio from out belts but just pressed a button on the earpiece cord. I'd say go with radios with earpieces as they cannot be heard by anyone other than those wearing the earpieces.

We use Motorola SP50 radios. They're a commercial variant of the earlier "Spirit" radios. We've found them to be bulletproof, though I think this model is now being sold as something else.

Outside staff and management also use the earbud/lapel mic attachments. They work very well in varied noise environments and provide privacy.

If you don't want to go new, you can usually find these radios on Ebay. Just make sure you get the same model number... there are some differences (wide band/narrow band, number of channels, power output, etc).

....we use intercoms and hate them. I am getting walkie-talkies. Can you hear me now? If the Motorola is another name now what would that be? What radios do you use?

we use cordless phones with repeaters throughout the cinema.
With walkie Talkers they are much cheaper but no where near as clear.

And don't forget that 'walkie talkies', handheld commercial radio transceivers, and cordless phones can all be overheard on police scanner radios. I have all those frequencies programmed in all of my scanners.
