Future Industry Developments
The increase in other entertainment options, for instance computer games, pubs, home cinemas and the ever shrinking window between the release of a movie in the cinema and then onto DVD means that the future of the cinema industry is uncertain. The trend towards consolidation will no doubt continue, but it is interesting to note that the number of multiplexes opening has platitude, with an average of 25 a year opening between 2007 and 2008, only 6 were opened in 2009. This perhaps signals that the multiplex market has reached its full potential and that the marketplace is stabilizing.
However, the stabilization of the market at the top end does not as yet seem to have filtered down to the smaller cinemas and as such, many continue having trouble turning a profit. It is the owners' belief that the current market is ideal for the development of a new concept which gives movie patrons an entirely unique cinema experience - Grand Record.
