Movie Theaters Are Still (Mostly) Open, But That Won’t Last
"It's been a devastating week for the entertainment industry as Kovic Nineteen forces to cancellation of public gatherings. All over the world. Movie theaters are struggling to cope with two major factors declining attendance and delayed film releases from Motion Picture Studios theaters around the globe have closed but major change like AMC and cinemark have not yet decided to close up shop here in the US. Here's John Horns discussion with senior film writer at Variety Matt. Donnelly one that we've been reporting on depicted but theaters will close regionally not a blanket. You know all the movie theaters in the country represented by trade group called NATO But we imagined that they'll they'll try to close out in pockets of the slow wave to get as much you know revenue as they can. Nato is the National Association of Theatre Owners and just a couple of days ago. They cancelled their annual convention which was scheduled for the end of the month in Las Vegas. The other factor is that a lot of major releases are being pulled from the calendar. Disney has pulled. Moulin the new James Bond Movies. Nocco come out the next fast and furious sequel. Fast Nine has moved to next year. There are a number of other movies that have been placed on hold. What kind of problems does that create for those theaters that remain open because it seems like a lot of the tentpole movies aren't going to get released? Yes the great question. I mean it doesn't incentivize an audience to brave public faces when you don't have really premium and exciting new films to show them and also let's talk about just the agrees Spending on marketing studios have already completed to promote rely on and stuff nine. They're looking at hundreds and millions of and across the board for movies that aren't going to hit theaters for another year or so. If movie theaters are considered dangerous or if they're actually closed might companies like Disney and. Maybe it's not move on. Maybe it's another movie down the line just get released on Disney plus or an equivalent streaming service. Do you think that is part of the potential conversation going forward I can tell you confidently that over the past month or so of all been you know? They won't dare speak out loud The strategy of going directly to digital. But don't forget that a lot of companies are publicly traded so they have an onus to create value for general that. They can't get their movie theaters. They might be obliged to release them through streaming for higher price point or just to incentivize customers to stay but yeah. I think absolutely this is the reason to To look at sort of Shattering will be called the traditional theatrical window. Which is where movie theaters get ninety days or exclusivity with all the movies that come out and then they moved down two places like streaming and on demand. I think he could absolutely see some of the mid range films. You take something like marbled new mutants which is Sort of young adults giving property. I don't think that anyone to expand that to blow minds in the movie theater. They could easily put that directly on Hulu wish neons and and see up taking subscribers just before we got on the phone. I looked at the stock of cinema world which runs Regal United Artists and Edwards Theatres. Its stock is down. Almost eighty percent in the last month compared to the overall market dropping about twenty-five percent cinemark another major chain has seen its stock dropped almost sixty percent and at the same time. Netflix is down just seventeen percent which is better than the overall market so it feels like Wall Street sentiment on the at least short term potential for exhibition is really grim and at the same time. A lot of movies in production are shutting down as well and that won't be felt for months if not a year down the line. Is that going to be a factor as well not just for exhibition but for streaming services? Yeah I mean we. We've been having conversations about e even take the last round of of film festivals that went up. Jones going distribution all the time to to places like Toronto telluride Sundance. I think the OC a spike in sales of those finished movies But they can put up on services today but in terms of original production places like netflix. Amazon impact will be dramatic. Episodes opened a brand new six down stage facility in New Mexico where they intended to shoot the stranger things that will be delayed. You're talking about like theory of Marquis Properties in the stream or so. I think there will be a bit of a shock to either licensed beloved prize old content to put on or a scramble to fine finish work. They can put up in the near term. It does feel like some smaller exhibition chains are trying to come up with creative solutions. Alamo Draft House said that it in its San Francisco Theatre. It's doing something where no more than two hundred people can be in the theater and it's GonNa ask people to kind of separate themselves from one another. It feels like an interesting idea. I don't know how sustainable it is. Are you hearing other things like that where people can buy seats and maybe block off the seats around them or is it just whatever you find when you get into the auditorium? I think you'll find a lot of people finding creative solutions to enjoy the game. But I think at the end of the day there's so much option And there's just such a volume of content. You can watch at home so I think it's just more about separating the the brave from those would rather stop by Saly and you and I cover the movie business. I haven't been in a theatre at least a week and a half. How are people who cover movies? Seen movies are a lot of people now watching films on their laptops as opposed to going to screenings or theaters absolutely You know I went to a screening of a short film that one of the talent agency last week and of Savonarola Laura dern who just gave everybody an elbow bump to say hello and handshake so I think people are increasingly quite. Get us about Coming together so they do a lot more digital screeners for for industry professionals. Another interesting note As of last night The South by Southwest Film Festival organized. A last minute of sort of virtual festival with an online screening library to try to give some of those Indians. That didn't get to play a chance to get in front of accredited president. Chris I think is really cool and also what kind of solution that keeps everybody

"Fortune, Sports Illustrated and southern living. Mourner communications was a holding company and had a really super complicated history of its own. It grew out of the one or brothers motion picture studio and their various businesses that included movie theaters and a production and distribution business in the motion picture industry. Eventually Jack Warner of the Warner Brothers was the only Warner remaining and in nineteen sixty six he decided he was going to get out of the business. So he sold his shares of the company to another company called seven arts production, limited that company also bought another media company Atlantic records, then you had a guy named Stephen Ross who had built a conglomerate of businesses. He comes in. He acquires the Warner Brothers seven arts conglomerate, and now the the whole mess. Stephen Ross is other businesses and Warner Brothers seven arts all becomes known as Kinney national services. But then. Then there's a big scandal involving one of the businesses actually a parking business as about price-fixing, and that led to Ross selling off most of the companies in the conglomerate the remaining businesses that he kept were the media wants it became Warner communications. This was in nineteen seventy one Time, inC, and Warner communications merged in nineteen eighty nine. And that's where we get Time Warner which at the time was the largest entertainment conglomerate in the world in nineteen ninety-five. This new company Time Warner had acquired Turner Broadcasting System for nine point six billion dollars. And then in two thousand America Online and Time Warner looked to merge together AOL was essentially buying Time Warner for one hundred sixty five billion dollars. So that's hell the transaction. Would look on paper that AOL the company was buying Time Warner for. For one hundred sixty five billion dollars AOL's founder Steve case took the role of chairman of the board. And the new company would be a O L. Time Warner the association wouldn't quite last full decade. But it would really make an impression in its short time in the spotlight.

Yeah, he used to used to pop it and lock it. Yeah. Yeah. But, but on suit and tie. And yeah, works for a major motion picture studio. And of course, that's a logical transition. Yeah, not hymning since. No. Just this whole thing though. I feel bad one for Ben Affleck because been Affleck is going through some personal shit right now like he's he doesn't hit rock bottom. He's in fucking rehab. Last, I saw for his alcoholism and shit like so bad to the point where Jennifer garner his ex wife head to pretty much pick him up and take him to rehab. And there's a photo floating around out there where he's in the back seat of her car and they're getting him like Jack in the box or some shit. He just looks terrible. Like just face is reddish shit and flush, and he just looks drunk as fuck. And it's probably like three o'clock in the afternoon. So he has his own issues. So if he is completely out as Batman that she won't surprise me at all because they he's starting to become a liability to the point where it's like no one in their right mind is going to invest. You know, another one hundred two hundred million dollar movie into this dude when he really don't even seem like he wanted to be Batman anymore. Anyway, plus all this other per. Live drama. He got going on is probably best to just let him just fade away and figure out something else with Batman, so so Demi Demi Lovato. Okay. And then MAC Miller, and now Ben Affleck is going on binges. I think we need a new superhero. Where's Dr drew right or duchess. So many, no, no Dr drew definitely so many celebrities need rehab right now.

It's like, yeah, we pretty much know every detail and tidbit about they life. So it's just like he just picked a bad time to fall off a wagon, I guess. But with with this particular news. It. How do I don't want to say this? It frustrates me because I. I am of the mind of, I'm ready to just be done with the DC. You ought to gather just like cancel all this shit.
