All you folks who complain about the facility, seating, absurd munchie pricing, etc. are use to the "good life" of the big city! Broken and worn out seating plus "sounds through the walls" are part of living up here in the hills. Had you gone to the old down town theater or the smaller on near the hospital you would have been well prepared for this building l! If you want to spend a rainy afternoon in a theater and actually enjoy it I suggest that you run down to Hickory or even over to Tennessee. The folks that run the theater here are only in it to make money by satisfying what they think is the mindset of the average freshman college student or someone in the middle school system or even younger. On the rare occasion that the owners decide to run a decent movie the theater is filled by only a tenth or less. The more mature folks dont even look at the listings and the results show that. It is too bad, but the situation seems to have become conclusive. If you see a movie being advertised that just might fulfill something in your heart or mind, be prepared to make a day of it and go for a long highway stroll. The good news is that you will have some quiet time to discuss what you experienced with your sweetie.
I try to visit movie theaters anywhere I travel, but I am always glad to come home to the Regal 7 in Boone. This is my favorite theater! I drive 30 miles to come to this theater at least once a week, and I dont have a problem paying a little more for concessions because I know that theaters dont really make a lot of money off of movie tickets themselves. The new seats are comfy. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about movies, they keep the place very clean (they do a sweep of each theater in between every movie), and Ive never regretted a penny Ive spent there. If anyone has an issue with the prices, go on "Stimulus Tuesdays" where everything is discounted including concessions; and dont forget to sign up for a Regal Rewards Card, they are always giving me free concessions and movie passes... There is something magical about seeing a movie on the big screen, with their great sound system and clear, digital picture. I even like the movie trailers, and I give this theater 5 stars with no regrets.
The staff are wonderful - best thing about this location. Like so many of the cinema theaters, they charge an unreasonable amount of money for popcorn, soda and candies. I would guess that one day, while in a movie theater,an airline executive went to buy popcorn and the light went off in his head when he was walking back to his seat grumbling to himself about how it is highway robbery to purchase popcorn, and he thought, "Hey, why cant the airlines do the same thing and nickel and dime everyone for all the services!?!"Thus we have the movie industry to blame for our all the charges we now have with our airline industry!!! lol. Anyway, this theater is especially expensive! It isnt a modern cinema either-some of the theatre rooms have very old seats in them. A few have been updated. But guess what, this isnt a big city and we dont have another choice, other then to go off the mountain. So there!
I like this movie theater. Ive been visiting this Regal Cinema location since I was a child (back when it was a Carmike, that is), and have always been pleased. I have only good things to say about it: friendly staff; a logical layout; a clean, handsomely decorated building; plenty of parking; many screens to choose from; digital projection and 3D showings. The last time I was there, one thing that I liked in particular was my seat, which I found oddly comfortable (it mightve just been especially accommodating to my back). Ive never had any problems with the theater. Though I dont see many movies, Regal of Boone is where I go to see them, and will continue to do so in the future. My sincere thanks goes out to all associated with this business. I am grateful for, and have benefited from, your service. Keep up the good work, ladies and gents!
I ordered two tickets via Fandango yet was still required to stand in line to get them printed. To me, that really removed the benefit and convenience of purchasing the tickets to a definitely unpacked showing of a movie. Im not a real big fan of the antiquated system of standing in line for movie tickets, so I attempt to avoid it where possible. It still blows my mind how expensive it is to watch a 2D movie here in Boone. There definitely are better quality movie experiences for the same price elsewhere. I guess from a business owners perspective, if you can price gouge you might as well right? At least the movie was good, the audience quiet and respectful, and my experience overall pleasurable.

I came here because I heard they put new hand driers in the bathroom and boy, I wasnt dissapointed at all. My wife and I went to watch the Hunger games (ironically after buying a box of 24 muffins), but were so thrilled with the new hand driers, we stayed in the bathroom the whole time! Regrettably, we hadnt allowed ourselves more than three hours, so we had to leave. We evidently left some of our muffins there, only to receive a prompt phone call from the great management saying they would deliver them to us immediately. The manager beat us home with the hand drier warmed muffins. He even brought us 10 puppies. Ill be watching every movie ever again made in this theater.
My wife and I visited the theater today for the first time in about ten years. Contrary to the negative reviews, we found admission to a very popular release competitive in price with other theaters (yes, movies are expensive nowadays). The concessions were expensive, but again this is a common practice at theaters of late. The seating was comfortable and the theater was clean as a pin until we left, because we dropped a lot of our popcorn. The restrooms were a bit cramped, but spotless.Of course, we attended the first showing of the day. And as mentioned, the staff was welcoming and very friendly. All in all, it was a great experience. I look forward to returning soon.

this cinema sucks soooooooooooo bad... someone (not me) please burn this effing place to the ground so we will be forced to have a new one. OMG I hate this place so much if boone is growing why dont we have another place to watch movies. the prices keep rising but the place stays the same, its cheaper to go to good places and you dont have to sit in a place that should be a dollar theater. Id seriously be super happy if this place went out of business. If anyone knows anyone that wants to turn a couple hundred grand into millions all they have to do is open up something even remotely descent in boone and it will do awesome, I promise...

My biggest complaint with the Regal is not the smell or the ticket prices (get them cheaper as a senior), but the fact that they seldom if ever show REALLY GOOD films if they think they wont appeal to a sixth-grade audience. If a top-rated adult film get nominated for an Oscar, they might show it then. Thats happened several times. The latest example: Woody Allens "Midnight in Paris," which got excellent reviews but which they dont intend to show. Its not the fault of the local manager, Ive heard, but the company itself. Their policy is ridiculous for a college town, and we have no other choices.
