Regal Pointe Orlando plays host to many of the newest releases from all the major studios, as well as some of the old classics, either on or around their initial release anniversary. They also take the season into play when deciding which classics to bring back for special screenings. A prime example is Jaws. For one night only in September guests were invited to watch the classic in IMAX.

This Google Reviewer seems to really enjoy the seating, lol: “I went here on Sunday last weekend and it was nice there! I tried the 4DX for The Suicide Squad and it was a fun experience which was like a 2 hour Universal Studios ride!”
