Former Regal theater to reopen as The Edge cinemas
BIRMINGHAM, AL — Closed since 2006, the former Regal Festival Stadium 18 (the article says it was the Regal Festival 12), located in Birmingham’s Crestwood area, will reopen in early August after remodeling. It will be the second theater operated by Greenville-based Naos Entertainment and will now be known as The Edge cinemas.
Property owners, city officials and neighborhood leaders say the new theater can reinvigorate a commercial district that has seen more going out of business sales than grand opening parties in recent years. The shopping center is off Crestwood Boulevard and includes Home Depot and Burlington Coat Factory.
The only movie theater currently in the city is off U.S. 280. The other closest theaters are in Vestavia Hills, Hoover and Trussville.
