Cinemark CEO Doesn’t Thinks AMC’s Release Deal Will Disrupt Exhibition Ecosystem: Business Casual

Powered by RedCircle

Since the coronavirus pandemic swept the globe, movie theaters have had to shut their doors. As a result, theaters are taking a second look at their relationship with production companies.

Cinemark CEO, Mark Zoradi, comments on the adverse effects this brief run time could mean for a film’s earnings and the cinema profit funnel at large.

Perhaps a shortened theater run may ultimately help drive demand and get people in theater seats.
