Regal, a Cineworld subsidiary, operates the second-largest theater chain in the United States, with over 7,300 screens in 543 theaters. Cineworld is a British cinema company and the world’s second-largest cinema chain, with 9,500 screens across 790 sites in 11 countries.
Regal Cinemas has a Magento storefront hosted on AWS. They were facing numerous challenges with their existing hosting provider, including downtime and poor site performance. These challenges were particularly painful during major movie releases when traffic to the site hit record peaks. With little Magento or ecommerce expertise from their hosting provider, support was slow to rectify the issues, so Regal Cinemas sought out a provider who could deliver a scalable infrastructure, as well as rapid tech support from a team of experts in the cloud and ecommerce segment.
