As European motion picture professionals gather in Barcelona this week for the start of CineEurope 2015, Barco will once again be highlighting the Barco Escape format, arguably one of the hits of this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Prior to CineEurope I got a progress report from Barco executives and some Escape customers about the new format and how exhibitors and audiences have responded to it so far.
The Event Cinema Association this year will host two events at CineEurope June 22-25 in Barcelona. The CineEurope Focus Sessions – a panel discussion on the trade show floor on Tuesday June 23 at 4:00 pm – will feature some high profile, first time speakers: Emma Keith of NT Live, John Bullen of Sony Europe, Duncan Connal of Vue Cinemas, John Lewis of Broadway Cinema Letchworth, and Grant Calton of Fathom Events. This will be followed the next day by a poolside reception.
