The Changing Cineplex
Wednesday 12 February 2020, 14:00-18:00
Hotel Okura, Amsterdam
The Digital Cinema Summit, presented by Integrated Systems Europe in conjunction with Digital Cinema Report, highlights how advances in digital cinema technology are transforming not just how movie theatres around the world operate but the kinds of content they can offer to their customers. Top digital cinema technology experts from around the world will discuss those changes and the new developments on the horizon.

He started the technology column for Weekly Variety and for two years was a contributing columnist for Box Office magazine. He has reported on film and television production for most of the leading trade publications in the industry. He was Senior Editor at Millimeter magazine, Founding Editor of Post magazine and Editor-in-Chief of AV Video & Multimedia Producer magazine.
Competition at movie theatres around the world these days increasingly seems to be less about the movies exhibitors are showing and more about the seats they offer, the food they serve or the other entertainment options only they can provide. Meanwhile, the Hollywood studios produce fewer movies year after year and streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon spend millions of dollars on a diverse and growing range of movies and other programming. And the very wealthy, those willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a single feature film can see it in their home theatres before they even get to the Cineplex. Which raises the question: are feature films still the most important thing at your local movie theatre?
The Digital Cinema Summit will detail the many changes that are taking place in movie theatres around the world with an emphasis on the changes taking place across Europe. Leading experts and practitioners from all parts of the motion picture distribution chain will provide insights to how these changes are being implemented and how movie theatres are profiting from them. In addition, the conference will offer an excellent venue for networking, face-to-face exchanges and the opportunity to establish new business connections in this ever-developing industry.
