New paradigm in business of Cinema: Consumer choices and screen comfort

Content is everywhere, but the overall experience of going to a theatre is unique. It’s not just seeing a film, but often a family outing with a tub of popcorn. Consumers want both the theatre experience and the flexibility of watching their favourite content at any time, at the click of a button. How can the industry align its approach to this changing landscape, and can it circle back to the pre-pandemic huge ticket sales on opening weekends?


Ajit Andhare of Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Pankaj Jaysinh, of UFO- Moviez,

 Lada Guruden Singh of Sony Pictures, Rockline Venkatesh- Exhibitor and distributor and  Kunal Sawhney of Movie Max Participated in the discussion while  Akshaye Rathiof Aashirwad Theaters moderated.
