The Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition’s live theatrical event footprint has now surpassed 1,030 sites, expanding the opportunity to bring more consumers together for exclusive live cinema experiences.
These live capable sites are part of DCDC’s growing network, now totaling more than 3,120 theatres and more than 33,300 screens across the U.S.
“We’ve been working hard to push for more live capability across the industry as this is a functionality that benefits both content owners and cinema operators,” said DCDC CEO Howard Kiedaisch. “By having a bigger footprint, it not only means more exhibitors and consumers are enjoying the benefits of live events, but it provides content distributors more opportunities to monetize their shows which in turn means more programs will be offered.”
The DCDC Network has delivered 78 live events since its inception with plans to surpass 90 live events by the end of 2023. The wide variety of live events delivered have included eSports competitions, Q&As with film talent, concerts, and sporting events such as boxing, wrestling, and MMA.
The Network delivered 30 live events in 2022 alone including Coldplay: Music of the Spheres Live from Buenos Aires, Paramount’s Scream Opening Night Q&A Fan Event, BTS Permission to Dance on Stage: Seoul, and Netflix’s The Gray Man Q&A.
