Has anyone been able to find a list of which theatres Hoyts is selling to Regal and which they are not? I'm trying to find which are not part of the deal and may end up being available.

I've read Regal wants to keep mostly the theatres in Boston and the D.C. area. But details like specific sites may be worked out in the next month or so:
http://www.knoxnews.com/kns/business/article/0,1406,KNS_376_1721292,00.html

Rochester NY has a fairly new Hoyts 12-plex in a mall. Three Regal sites already here, a 13, 16 and 18 plex.

I'm interested in this too; I'm surrounded by Hoyts right now (3 locations with 24 screens).

Regal moves in on Hoyts America cinemas
07 February 2003 04:05


No-one in Australia is publicly commenting on Regal Entertainment Group's widely publicised to buy 554 Hoyts America screens.

But then Australia's richest man, Kerry Packer, whose family company Consolidated Press Holdings (CPH) is apparently getting $200m split evenly between cash and stock from the sale, is not known for encouraging a culture of openness. And neither is the deal signed.

It is understood that Regal is buying about 60% of the circuit, and particularly the most profitable screens, and that CPH's resultant 5% shareholding in Regal may mean Packer's son James gets a seat on the board.

The deal will push Regal, which is owned by Philip Anschutz, to over 6,000 screens, including the Edwards Theatres and United Artists Theatres brands.

Hoyts owned about 1,800 screens worldwide until it sold off its 35% stake in the 337-screen Cinemex circuit in Mexico midway through last year. It is one of the three dominant players in Australia with nearly 370 screens across the country. Other Hoyts territories include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, New Zealand and Uruguay.

I've seen a list of some of what Regal isn't taking. However I cannot give out the particulars of the list because its not my place to do so. I am certain Hoyts will make this list public when they are ready to talk to potential buyers.

I have found out that the Hoyts Cinemas in the following locations are NOT included in the package Regal is buying: Brockton, MA; Sharon, MA; East Bridgewater, MA; and Waterbury, CT. Since the local media for these areas (that is where I found this info) know which cinemas are and are not being included there must be a public list somewhere.
