April 29, 2021

The 36th event in the series will go live on April 29th, ,09:00 Los Angeles, 17:00 London time.

# CJCinemaSummit will enable industry stakeholders to stay connected to the industry and gain key up to date insights as well as to ask questions and support each other through these turbulent times.

The sole aim is to create a virtual meeting space with a regular schedule where speakers will share industry information, as well as enabling a space for round tables and audience participation.

One sign that the cinema industry is re-emerging from COVID-19 shutdowns is how many blockbusters IMAX has awaiting its giant screens over the next three months. the company has accomplished a lot since the fall of 2020 and Craig Dehmel, Head of Global Distribution at IMAX will tell us about the company's big "Godzilla vs Kong" box office, enormous success with local titles in Japan, and an upcoming slate of blockbusters that includes everything from "A Quiet Place 2," to "Fast & Furious 9" and even a Broadway musical. Can you guess which one?


Alison Burns, the Director of Operations for Novo Cinemas in the Middle East, also joins us to talk about the success they have had with IMAX auditoriums as well as how the United Arab Emirates has weathered the COVID storm.


Plus, Movio's Sarah Lewthwaite stops by to help us add up the numbers on last year's event cinema releases in the United Kingdom.
