America's exhibition industry has got the luxury bug, with regular seats being ripped out and replaced with extra wide leather recliners and patrons being tempted with gourmet foodstuffs. As well as seats, screens are getting bigger with more IMAX and other large format screens and technological novelties like motion seats and more powerful and realistic sound systems. The higher prices these amenities attract is moving box office ahead despite flat attendance. Exhibitors are also increasing profits by applying digital technology to areas like ticketing, theatre scheduling and screen advertising.
As well as looking at broad business trends in the industry, the report dissects the financial performance of the publicly quoted exhibitors which dominate exhibition: Regal, AMC, Cinemark and, in Canada, Cineplex.
