AMC Entertainment Holdings (NYSE: AMC) CEO Adam Aron: “Movie Theaters – We’re Not Leaving!”
“…Thanks to rising attendance, increased ticket prices achieved both through mix changes, and actual price increases, storing food and beverage revenues per patron, a relentless focus on cost containment, and the pruning of marginal theaters from our network, our financial results in Q2 were well ahead of our own, and consensus third-party expectations. In short, AMC crushed it in Q2….”
“…There are those who were sure that our recovery in Q2 would be slower than is the current reality. Again, the Q2 numbers for AMC have proved them wrong, as well. But there are those, still, who continue to forecast the demise of the theatrical exhibition business overall or maybe they just want to predict the demise of AMC. They say that streaming is going to beat us, that’s their conventional wisdom. Well, a lot of people mock conventional wisdom because so often it’s just plain out wrong. You’ve likely heard before this mantra, maybe even repeated it yourself. Radio is going to kill off movie theaters. TV was going to kill off movie theaters. VCRs were going to kill off movie theaters. DVDs are going to kill off movie theaters. Each time movie theaters proved resilient. Americans went to a movie theatre a billion times in 2019. That’s a billion with a B. And the global box-office in 2019 was a record-high $43 billion. Yes, there was a pandemic, but now streaming is going to kill off theaters, we breathlessly hear. Well, at AMC, we intend with all of our might, and brains, and heart, and soul to prove those procrastinators and prognosticators wrong, too….”

Roblox Corporation (NYSE: RBLX) CEO David Baszucki: ”Immersive Advertising is Enormous Opportunity”
“…We’ve historically started with younger players. And now we see growth in two areas: One is the existing Roblox player base is growing up with us. So that is a retention opportunity to bring them with us. But we also bring other people in. Squid games, the concerts, both examples of events that we believe most likely reached some new audience. In the case of Squid Games looking for — and that’s singular Squid Game, people looking for a place to experience that brands side-by-side the awesome show. And so they came to Roblox where they could see that. So, I do believe those things add to the retained people that come into our platform and stick with us and bringing new older players to a platform…”
“…Advertising is an enormous opportunity, and at the same time our vision for advertising is immersive, it’s native, it’s around high-quality experiences and over time, we’ll be working on rolling out. But the standards around this, how this is supported globally and we do think there’s an interesting and big future and at the same time, a very high-quality branded advertising type future…”
