On June 8, 2005, Regal Entertainment Group ("Regal") announced that it has entered into a Consent Order and final judgment with the United States Department of Justice (the "DOJ") to resolve and dismiss with prejudice all previously disclosed claims brought by the United States under the Americans with Disabilities Act (the "ADA") against Regal and its subsidiaries (other than Regal's United Artists Theatres subsidiaries which are subject to a separate previously disclosed consent decree and settlement agreement relating to claims under the ADA originally entered into with the United States in 1996) with respect to wheelchair-bound patrons' lines of sight in and access to the stadium portions of Regal's stadium-style theatres. Without admitting any violation of the ADA, Regal agreed with the DOJ to improve access to its stadium-style theatres to benefit its wheelchair-bound patrons' movie-going experience in a manner consistent with the consent. Regal estimates that with respect to its existing theatres it will incur aggregate costs associated with ADA related theatre improvements of approximately $15 million over the next 5 years. A copy of the press release is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
