2. (i) The cinema, Paradise Cinema, is located in the Newport Mall in Jersey City. The origin of its name is a famous France and Italian film, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso. Similar with the key of Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, the central principle of our cinema is to provide warmth and happiness for audience. Paradise Cinema now covers an area of about 2000 square yard and owns 4 screening rooms including 1 3D screen and almost 800 seats. All the screening rooms are equipped with wide screens and advanced audio and projection system. Paradise Cinema will provide you with comfortable and exciting viewing experience.

(ii) The blueprint shows the process how the cinema functions and how the service is provided. The “physical evidences” are what consumers will see and experience and each of them corresponds to a step of the “customer actions”. The “customer actions” show the flow of customers’ performance and choices, from entering the cinema, seeing the films to leaving the cinema. The “onstage contact persons” are staff who provide consumers with service directly and face-to-face, such as salespeople in the reception or snack counter, and ticket checkers. The “line of interaction” between “customer actions” and “onstage contact persons” means direct interaction between customers and the cinema. Any vertical flow crossing “line of interaction” depicts a direct interaction happens, such as the sales and purchase behavior of tickets. The next dividing line is “line of visibility”, which separate…...

Cinéma Français

...Cinéma français À partir de la fin des années 70, le cinéma français entre dans une période difficile. Le nombre de spectateurs, qui avait déjà fortement chuté en passant de 424 millions en 1947 à 184 millions en 1970, continue de décliner. La principale raison est le développement de la télévision. L'arrivée de Canal+ en 1984, qui fait du cinéma l'un des éléments essentiels de sa grille, est le symbole de cette époque. Quelques films parviennent à s'imposer au box-office, comme La Chèvre(1981), Trois hommes et un couffin (1985), Jean de Florette (1986), L'Ours et Le Grand Bleu (1988). Face à cette situation, plusieurs mesures sont prises. En 1988, le gouvernement décide de limiter la diffusion des films à la télévision (plus de diffusions le mercredi, le vendredi et le samedi). Après avoir touché le fond en 1992 avec 116 millions d'entrées, le renouveau du cinéma français débute en 1993 avec le triomphe des Visiteurs avec Jean Reno et Christian Clavier, plus grand succès depuis 25 ans. Les années 2000 confirment la bonne santé du cinéma français, avec des succès comme Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Les Choristes ou Astérix et Obélix : Mission Cléopâtre.  Les années 2010 commencent, elles, en grandes pompes, avec un grand succès de l'année 2011, Intouchables, qui avec plus de 19 millions d'entrées devient le troisième film le plus vu de l'histoire du cinéma français, devant La Grande Vadrouille. Intouchables est un film français réalisé par Olivier Nakache et Éric......

Global Cinema

...01/18/2013. Global Cinema Questions for Spanish Cinema and Cell 211. 1. Individual Question: I have not used this film in a class before. I want your honest opinion of it. Look at the course objectives and refer to specific ones as you address whether or not I should use this film again in Global Cinema. I think Cell 211 portrays a very excellent example of Spanish cinema and Global Cinema at large and hence, should be used in future classes. One of the main objectives of the Global Cinema course is for the student to be able to differentiate between film as mass consumption entertainment like the ones produced in Hollywood and film as cultural art as produced in other countries. Even though Cell 211 has a lot in common with Hollywood style of film production, I think it still kept close to the international style of filming because the main Character in the movie, Juan Oliver, was not Idolized and made to seem superhuman. The movie was realistic and not only was it entertaining but also very emotional, which is a strong trait of Spanish films. I particular like the final scene where Armando asked if there was any questions signifying that the movie answered all and any questions the audience had. Another important objective of this course is help the student identify the historical and political issues being addressed in the film and I think Cell 211 couldn’t have done that any better. The ETA members were taken hostage in the prison and I remember......

American Cinema

...American Cinema Unit 2 1. Oligopoly is the exclusive ownership of a industry by several companies acting in concert. Vertical integration is the studios’ control not only of the production of movies but also their distribution and exhibition. The story department consists of workers that are professional readers employed by the studio. They hire these workers to find and develop script ideas out of newspapers, magazine articles, plays, and books. Block booking is the tactic of forcing exhibitors to rent movies in groups rather than separately. Radio-Keith-Orpheum was one of the five major production studios in Hollywood. United States v. Paramount Pictures, Inc., et al. is the Supreme Court decision which ruled that the studio system constituted an oligopoly because it depended on such illegal practices as blind bidding and block booking. Blind bidding is a standard practice in which an exhibitor was forced to rent a movie from a studio without ever having been given the chance to see it or learn anything about it. Minors, was the name given to the three smaller studios in Hollywood during the studio era. 2. A and B are false 3.

...long-term growth [pic] Source: Motion Picture Associate of America, Inc. Concentration The market is largely fragmented as there are about 2,000 companies that operate about 5,000 indoor theatres. Due to high entry barrier, there are three major players: Regal Entertainment, AMC Entertainment and Cinemark comprised over c. 40% market share in terms of attendance. The costs of purchasing and operating capital equipment for establishing auditoriums are capital intensive. Besides, opening a large multi-screen complex entails high rent and utility costs. Revenue drivers The major revenue sources are ticket admissions, food and beverage and other services. Ticket admissions account for almost 70% of industry revenue; food and beverage sales, which have higher margin than ticket sales, account for more than 20%. Other services contribute the remaining 10% which include on-screen advertisements, facility and concession rental during non-peak hours, and amusement machine use. Industry Trend Decreasing attendance As a result of changes in viewing preference, the attendance has been declining. The increase in cable/ satellite TV and other entertainment products pose a threat for the US theatre industry. Increasing ticket price and revenue With advancement in technology, switching to digital and 3-D projection systems (the premium mix of products) leads to higher margins. Thus, even though attendance continues to decrease, the pricing growth helps to offset the......

Jamaican Cinema

... Film 1006: Post-War World Cinema 15/5/09 Critical Essay: Jamaican Cinema (focus – The Harder They Come (Perry Henzell, Jamaica, 1971) ‘Representing Jamaican culture on the screen, how The Harder They Come triggered the development of Jamaican cinema.’ The Harder They Come was the first movie made in Jamaica, directed by a Jamaican and with a Jamaican theme. The film opened the country’s eyes to the creation of film and the industry that surrounds it. It also gave the world (particularly the West) its first filmic taste of the cultural, social and historical issues of 20th century Jamaica. It was not only successful in the eyes of its audience but also in the eyes of film critics worldwide. Geoff Parker writes “Indisputably the greatest Jamaican film ever made, The Harder They Come is also one of the finest films yet made about the third world.” (2001). At first glance Perry Henzell appears to be using a narrative to document Jamaican roots Reggae music (especially that of Jimmy Cliff); but although The Harder They Come went a long way towards creating a huge global Reggae following the film had many other underlying issues. Even though most critics (Cham, Parker, Yearwood and others) discuss the film as the one that popularised Reggae music in the West it is the task here to illustrate that The Harder They Come brought Jamaican society and its culture into cinematic visibility. Cinema in Jamaica had only a western and......

Innovations in Cinema

...reward type business. It has been the goal of studios and filmmakers to put buts in seats at cinemas all over the world. Over the decades new technologies have added more interest to viewers in the ultimate goal to have the best experience watching a film. In society the cinema was used as a catalyst to forget about what’s going on in daily lives of viewers and take the audience to another world or another time. It was the perfect getaway from troubles of the real world. The Beginning: The first developed film technology was the Kinetoscope projector. Inventor Thomas Edison developed the Kinetoscope. The Cinematograph developed by the Lumiere Brothers was an advancement on its predecessor the Kinetoscope. The Lumiere Brothers would send camera men all over to film various things done by people and they would show the film with their Cinematograph to an audience and from there the cinema was born. Around 1898 a man named George Melies used the technology given and established vast sets and camera tricks as a way to make films even more unique and special. Melies’ films would take the viewer to the moon or on an adventure across the seven seas. People would come to see his films because it was something different. Up to that point films were only a minute or two long but with the success of Melies longer films other producers began making longer films as well. The Birth of the Cinema Theater: At this time film exhibition was more of a novelty where it would be shown......

Pvr Cinemas

... I R M A N ’ S S T A T E M E N T However, we at PVR also realized that its in unique times like this, that tremendous medium and long term opportunities arise. This is the time to re-examine fundamentals, re-jig the core of the business and go line by line to draw stronger efficiencies. Every single person on the PVR team stood shoulder to shoulder and hammered away at every opportunity to do this, regardless of whether it came wrapped in a good or difficult situations, till silver linings appeared everywhere. PVR used the spaces inherent in times like this, to enter new entertainment and leisure domains. The long awaited bowling centre project was piloted and launched to great acclaim. New cinemas were inaugurated. Production projects were completed and released. Tremendous breadth and depth was added to several operation footprints. Given that PVR depends greatly on its internal accruals to finance expansion, your company’s expansion plans were not curtailed the way other capital market-dependant industry players were. To handle topline and bottomline contraction, PVR teams saved or maximized every rupee. Distribution was revisited and operational costs were pared down across the board without affecting core efficiencies. Capital was raised at reasonable costs to tide the company through requirement situations. Teams in operations did their best to maximize average revenue per user across exhibition and F&B. Marketing maximized......

Spanish Cinema

...Global Studies 298: Barcelona Winter 2009 Cinema History in Barcelona and Spain Cinema reflects the voice and culture of a nation. It documents important changes in politics, lifestyle, and even language. Barcelona was the birthplace for Cinema in of Spain. During the silent period of film all of the biggest Spanish directors including Marro, Chómon, Gelabert, and Bános were based out of Barcelona (Alvarez 6). The first films that had sound where shown in Barcelona before anywhere else, although without sound due to the lapse in technological capabilities (Alvarez 7). Barcelona’s movement in film did not stop there. Throughout the years and generations Catalan cinema has been a part of Spanish culture and has in its own right fought to survive. In the beginning Barcelona was the sole player in Spanish Cinema. Madrid, the other major metropolitan area, was more concerned with traditional forms of entertainment such as bullfighting and la zarzuela (musical theater) (Alvarez 6). The first Spanish film was actually that of a group of church goers leaving Sunday Mass which was entitled Salida de la misa de doce del Pilar or in English: “Leaving the Midday Mass at the Church of Pilar in Zaragoza.” This film was already the way from 1896 and would seem to show an enthusiastic future for film if it were not for such factors as foreign competition, government, and an overbearing church (Stone 14). During the turn of the century in particular themes of the......

Indian Cinema

...Indian Cinema The field of Entertainment has evolved significantly over the years. Earlier pictures didn’t have sounds they just had movements from Actors. These movies were called silent motion pictures. With the invention in technology the movies started talking and were called ‘Talkies’. Soon these movies became popular and were a major source of entertainment. There was a section of people who were apprehensive about the possibility that movies will overshadow the theatre or the art of stage acting. But all these fears proved to be untrue as theatre is still very popular amongst certain section of society. Theatre creates a direct emotional bonding with the audience. Over the decades movies have become a very popular source of entertainment. The medium of Movies has been used as a medium to depict stories and culture of the society. It has been responsible in shaping up the society and getting public co-operation for nation building. The Indian Film industry recently completed its 100 years of existence making it one of the oldest and largest movie industries in the world. The first Indian movie was Raja Harishchandra and it was released in 1913, directed by Dadasaheb Phalke. In that era it was considered derogatory for females to work in movies. In 1930’s a new era was started with the introduction of “studio system”. It’s most successful early film “Devdas” (1935) was the product of the studio system with P.C. Barua as the main lead.

Marketing has long relied on the use of market segmentation. While birth age has been a useful way to create groups, it describes segments but does not help to understand segment motivations. However, environmental events experienced during one’s coming of age create values that remain relatively unchanged throughout one’s life. Such values provide a common bond for those in that age group, or generational cohort. Segmenting by ‘coming of age’ age provides a richer segmentation approach than birth age. This study compares two significant cohorts: Baby Boomers and Generation Y, with respect to their shopping behavior and purchase involvement for food, clothing and automobiles.

Film and Cinema

...Film and Cinema Checkpoint Art 101 Kristal Gardner 6, October 2010 The distinction of film and popular cinema can be found in the reasons that each was “created.” Both can be used for documenting what one sees and feels however there is a difference in the way that people chose to use the different aspects. Film has been widely used as a documentation of events; wars, economic crisis, natural disasters, etc. Film has also been used over dramatize cinematic movies, such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. This was done by Douglas Gordon in his 1993, 24 Hour Psycho where he drew out the original scenes to span only two frames per second, thus causing the movie to span an entire 24 hours. The Battleship Potemkin was a montage, a sequencing of disparate images used to create a multi faceted image, which was created to shock the audience by sequencing many different shots per frame. There were many new technologies developed in film to help intrigue the audience, the flashback (which is used in many movies with regularity), cross-cutting, where the director moves back and forth between two events in the film, and continues to do so in shorter and shorter sequences until the back and forth becomes furiously paced. Film may be considered by many to be more artistic than popular cinema. Popular cinema is used for entertainment purposes. Popular cinema movies will have a story to unfold before them so that they may be caught up in what is happening to the......
