QuoteMooky Greidinger, the chief executive of Cineworld, said on Sky News that delays in the opening of many films â€" including â€œMulan," â€œBlack Widow,â€ â€œWonder Woman 1984,â€ as well as the Bond movie â€" meant the company â€œdidnâ€™t have the goodsâ€ for customers. â€œItâ€™s the wrong decision from the studios to move the movies in such a way,â€ Mr. Greidinger said. â€œUnfortunately, we cannot operate without a proper flow of products and sadly, you, like I, have seen audience numbers dwindle to tiny and unsustainable levels and the delay of Bond has been a huge blow.â€
Quote from: Hydra009 on October 05, 2020, 12:48:06 PMThat really sucks. And it seems that theaters in general have been taking a beating these last few years, covid and digital releases just pushed them over the edge.
QuoteAfter announcing it would reopen more than two-thirds of its 91 movie theater locations by the end of August, Marcus Theatres reports it will now temporarily close 17 of those 72 reopened cinemas as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.These now temporarily closed theaters include two in southeastern Wisconsin â€" Marcus Menomonee Falls Cinema and Marcus Hillside Cinema in Delafield."As the entertainment industry continues to adapt to the impact of Covid-19, the number of studio releases available has slowed dramatically, which has directly impacted guest attendance," Marcus Theatres said in a statement. "As soon as this trend reverses and demand returns, we will quickly resume operations."
