  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We are updating our Regal estimates to factor in a better 1Q17 trend in industry box office than we anticipated, but limited change to our full-year view. For 1Q17, domestic box office rose 4% year over year, better than our expectation for a decline when we last published Regal estimates. However, we continue to see a flattish domestic box office trend for the year, with a decline in 3Q17 and a flattish 4Q17 offsetting growth in 1H17." (4/3/2017)
