Watch the Jack Myers' Leadership Conversation with NCM's Cliff Marks and Regal's Ken Thewes. What will the new cinema experience be like for audiences and brands as movie theaters open to the public? What does the future of the movie industry look like? What are the great innovations to look forward to in movie theaters and cinema advertising? These questions and more will be addressedby MediaVillage founder Jack Myers during his "Leadership Conversation" with Ken Thewes, chief marketing officer of Regal, and Cliff Marks, president of National CineMedia (NCM).

"As we continue to navigate the new business realities of this historic time, we are grateful Regal and NCM will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look into Hollywood and what audiences and brands can expect in the coming months and well into 2021," said Myers, whose Leadership Conversations have been showcasing insights of thought leaders from the media, marketing, advertising and entertainment communities. "MediaVillage hosts 90 distinct content platforms dedicated to amplifying voices of leadership and bringing the media and advertising community together through shared experiences, human connectivity, online education, market intelligence and advancing diversity."

"Advertisers recognize that cinema delivers a unique experience and unequaled value," commented Marks. "There are several blockbusters ready for release and our research shows consumers are eager for a return of their favorite film viewing environment. Ken and I are excited to share the many innovations that our audiences – and advertisers – will discover as we welcome them back later this month."
