Landmark Cinemas CEO: “I Love Tentpoles but I Need More Than That”
Neil Campbell, president/CEO of Landmark Cinemas, asserted that he needs a steady stream of all types of movies—not just tentpoles—to keep his cinemas healthy.
“I love tentpoles, but I need more than that. It doesn’t pay all the bills and doesn’t take care of all my customers. I need [at least] one new film every Friday,” he said during a frank conversation with entertainment technology professionals Tuesday at the Hollywood Professional Association (formerly Hollywood Post Alliance) Tech Retreat in Palms Springs.
