Conversations at the Heart of CinemaCon

May 2019

Come on a journey with me over miles of carpet and up escalators and down escalators and maybe more carpet too….oh wait it’s just the walk to CinemaCon.  I’m sure my health insurance is wondering if I attached my Garmin to the neighborhood dog because my step count was easily triple my norm.  At the end of that long carpeted journey what one finds is great conversations.  For TK this year CinemaCon was ultimately about conversations.  We had excellent discussions with numerous clients about their current and future projects.  We also met other attendees from all corners of the exhibition business, and the world.  Chatting with first time attendees is always enjoyable to learn what brought them to the show.  We were able to visit with many of our vendor friends whom we rely on closely as valuable team members on shared projects.  All these conversations created a positive energy that seemed to hum across the convention and trade show floor.

September 2018

An article by Sr. Principal, Mike Cummings, was featured in October issue of FilmJournal magazine, titled “Destination Entertainment: Preserving the social experience in a streaming world”.

In the article, Mike Cummings discussed the view of the cinema going as a socially infused entertainment experience. He talked about the benefits of movie-going in this modern world of media streaming as a fun and pleasant way to get away, socialize and enjoy the surrounding atmosphere. See how well thought-out design and latest technology tie into the successful process.

Many times, when I meet someone or talk with friends and am describing my work—primarily designing movie theatres—people will ask me: Aren’t movie theatres going away? I inevitably start with talking about people dining out even though they have a kitchen in their home, and the fact that collective storytelling is part of our human experience dating back to cavemen gathering around a fire. Usually this stream of conversation stops, but there is a whole lot more to the story…

Belt, Suspenders and the Sagrada Familia

Recently in a meeting a colleague made the comment, “That’s like using both a belt and suspenders.”  He was trying to say the system under discussion was redundant.  Being the only woman in the room (something unusual in our office), I had to speak up and say, “Hey wait a minute, in my world a belt does something different than suspenders.  Belts hold things in and suspenders hold things up.  Down isn’t generally an issue.”  Well after the laughter cleared there was some very thoughtful contemplation from the guys.  It was very evident that they had never stopped to think about it from that perspective.  Many times, seeing a new perspective is just what is needed for a new or fresh idea, or a better answer.

This year has been a kaleidoscope of shifting ideas for me and great opportunities for new perspectives. (more…)
