L.A. LIVE theatre's upgrade to newest projection technology makes Downtown location one of city's few to showcase High Frame Rate 3D films

\"In Hollywood...most consider 48 FPS a must-see.\"-Los Angeles Times

The Hobbit opens in theatres this Friday

Los Angeles, Ca (December 13, 2012) Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14 is one of only 450 movie theatres nation-wide to offer The Hobbit, opening in theatres nationwide this Friday, in a new and evolutionary presentation format for 3D with a High Frame Rate called HFR RealD 3D. Regal moviegoers have purchased more than 250,000 pre-sale tickets to see The Hobbit, which shows the incredibly strong advance interest.

Frame rates are the number of images (frames) displayed by a projector in on second. Currently, 24 frame rates is the industry standard in cinemas worldwide. The HFR RealD 3D technology of 48 frames per second record and play visuals at twice the current rate. Shooting at twice the rate of normal speed, it helps to eliminate strobe effects, the flickering caused when an object on the screen moves too fast for the frame rate to focus, also creating a brighter screen, due to the projection shutter being open more often.

\"Regal Cinemas will showcase Peter Jackson's latest work in a special 3D presentation at 48 frames per second in The Hobbit, being shown at Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14. This High Frame Rate enhances picture quality, smoothness and clarity,\" stated Ken Thewes, Chief Marketing Officer at Regal Entertainment Group.

Tickets are available for advanced purchase for The Hobbit in HFD RealD 3D at Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14 through Fandango.com.
