Much Ado About Nothing out in New York, San Fransisco and Los Angeles on June 7th. It will roll out to the rest of the United States on the 21st.

The two different release dates have been known about beforehand, but the initial screening areas weren't really officially confirmed.

I'm getting a little frustrated about this: I contacted the closest independent movie theater near me to ask if they could get 'Much Ado About Nothing' and they told me that it hasn't been offered to them as an option. Lionsgate and/or Roadside WhoEverTheyAre have to actually list the film before I can put pressure on the theater! What is the deal? /frustrated rant>.
There may be a deal with certain chains, or some such. I don't know.
Well, considering the poster contest is conducted by a major chain, I do wonder if that's not the case, at least at the moment?
Well if they are only releasing to Regal Cinema Theaters then I'm screwed because there aren't any in Iowa. :(
I doubt only Regal will get the movie, since that really defies the definition of "opening wide."
Yeah, San Francisco has no Regal Cinemas in city limits.. My best guess is that'll it will play in a Landmark chain theater.
Just noticed it's listed for the Angelika in Dallas on the 21st.
"Opening wide" and "nationwide" are two very different terms. Opening wide usually refers to 1000+ screens. Nationwide can simply mean a screen or 2 in most states. Not at all guaranteed to play in less populated markets.
I swear I was tweeted a rough number at one point, but now I can't find it, so I'm not sure what I'm remembering.
It was in the summer movie flyer at my local Regal theater, but I just looked at the Regal website and it's not listed there yet.
