Slashfilm managed to grab a screenshot of the schedule as well before Regal pulled the information:
It's speculated more movie theater locations will eventually be announced, and that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will run from about 60-90 seconds in length.
We see the above image also mentions the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will run before all movies, which is what the previous rumor stated.
A leaked animated image may have also given us our first look at the Millennium Falcon.
