3. Will the new proprietor of the nation’s biggest free venue chain power a reconsider on the dramatic window?
In December, Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner’s Landmark Theaters, the biggest autonomous auditorium chain in US with 252 screens in 27 markets, was offered to Charles S. Cohen Media Group for an undisclosed sum. Updates on a deal was normal, as the chain had been reputed to be offered to everybody from Amazon to Netflix to Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios . Less talked about is the manner by which the Cohen Media Group could move the showy window all alone.
Milestone is an anomaly as a major chain in that it will indicate Netflix motion pictures dramatically, despite the fact that the gushing monster keeps on demonstrating a large portion of its titles in theaters and online in the meantime. Cohen has just demonstrated that won’t change on his watch. On the off chance that the organization needed to, it could push for a shorter showy window (normally the 90-day time span a motion picture appears in theaters before going to spilling or another subordinate market). Cohen Media Group is additionally a free dispersion and creation organization (it discharged past Oscar chosen people “Faces Places” and “Solidified River”), which gives it control of both the creation and arrival of motion pictures.
