2017 In Review

By | No Comments

New year, new beginnings… and, boy, did TK have many new beginnings this past year 2017.

The Great Move.

We have moved. It was only across the street, but after many years at the Mark Twain historic tower, we moved to the City Center Square building at 1100 Main St, Suite 2200. We love our new place with bird’s eye views of downtown KC. We jumped at the chance to design the new space to our own liking. It was a long road to perfection (as you can see below), but we are loving our finished and new place now! (If you have not stopped by, please do when you are in the area! ) (more…)

If you want to get someone’s attention, talk about one of these topics that are influencing the cinema industry:

* Seating, self-service, more service, efficiency, “integrated” and “experiential” are the terms and amenities operators are contemplating today.

* I am continually fascinated by the pace of technology solutions entering the industry and the opportunities they create. If you don’t have technology or it is unavailable or slow, the customer quickly grows impatient and might have to wait or rely on others; this is a pain point to avoid.

* For years, industry leaders have contemplated the release window, piracy, VOD and alternative online entertainment options. Customers are truly moving from bricks to clicks, and this is a real threat. However, touch, feel, taste and special events are impossible to achieve online.

* Consolidation is eye-popping and more than likely will continue and create demand for more differentiation and innovation.
