Imax CEO Says Streamers Weighing Giant-Screen Releases

“We’re in active discussions with all of the streaming [services] about an IMAX release,” Richard Gelfond, CEO of the large-screen exhibitor, told the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference during a session that was webcast Wednesday. Gelfond argued that while Netflix, Amazon and other streamers are increasingly working with top Hollywood talent, “there’s not an opening day,” especially for their tentpole releases. The exec added that the streaming business recognizes “the number one way to event-size the size [of a movie] is in Imax.” – Etan Vlessing, The Hollywood Reporter https://ift.tt/2OisoeL
