Why Aren’t More Coming Soon Movies Available To Watch in Theaters?

3 of these movies available to watch as of 9/13

Keith & the Movies blog way back in March 2019 asked an interesting question that led me to ponder another question I don’t understand. Maybe somebody reading can explain the following:

None of these available to watch as of 9/13

There are over 20 new movies “coming soon” on the Rotten Tomatoes page for this coming week. And yet of these 20 movies, the same 3-5 movies will be showing at Regal theaters in our area (I’m about 45 minutes from Seattle, so not exactly in the middle of nowhere with one theater that gets almost no new movies).

That’s a very small percentage of the overall movies that are supposed to be opening. Do individual chains get exclusive movies? For example, I see that <i>Freaks</i> is playing tomorrow at the AMC movie theater (only one AMC theater in the area).

8 movies and zero available to watch

To repeat the caption for emphasis: none of the eight movies above are showing in any of the dozen Regal Cinemas near me on their release dates. Not one. Why is this?

None of these eight movies are available anywhere (nearby) either. Sigh. Why not?
