By | No Comments

An article by Sr. Principal, Jack Muffoletto, was featured in September issue of FilmJournal magazine, titled ” Shaping the Industry with Design: Amenities, technology, threats and consolidation influence the new theatre environment”.

In it Jack discussed how do we, the designers, address the key topics that influence the cinema industry. Jacks mentions consolidation, content release issues, technology and amenities among other major topics that have a deep impact on the theatre industry today.

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.

“OBSERVATIONS FROM BEIJING AND JEDDAH”

by Mike Cummings, TK Architects International Inc.
May 2017

Departed on May 1st from the US and arrive in Beijing the evening of Tuesday May 2nd.

Wednesday morning, I went to the joint venture office in the Vantone office tower. During the morning we reviewed designs for cinema projects for China Film and Perfect World and exchanged preliminary information about the business meeting. We were joined by Tianyu Liu, one of the first people that I met in exploration of the China market. I had not seen her in nearly a year as she has been on maternity leave.

During the business meeting we reviewed our list of projects. Most are in the design and negotiation phases, but it seems to indicate that the market for cinemas in China remains strong and we will be very busy later in the year. We also talked about interoffice work and how we can improve the process and several business issues related to budget. (more…)

Vegas Strip Views from the Cinemark event at the LINQ

The highlights of the annual CinemaCon Convention in Las Vegas that was held March 20 to 27, 2017 can be summarized as Movies, Movie Stars, Strong Results and Bright Future. 

The primary highlights of each CinemaCon gathering revolve around movies and movie stars.  This year was no different.  Previews of upcoming attractions build positive momentum for exhibitors and allow them to begin planning promotions and special events targeted to specific movies.  Full length screenings of movies, such as “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (In Theatres May 26, 2017), which CinemaCon screened this year, and also had an unannounced screening of “Furious 8” much to everyone’s delight.
