Quotable

“We’re probably in the middle innings of a nine inning game right now of understanding COVID’s impact to theatrical. we’ve got a few more to play out, and I don’t think we’ll know exactly how it plays out until we’re ‘back to normal,’ where people are moving around in society without fear of risk and that means the concentration of the number of people getting into a building. I’m proud of the team trying a couple of different models. I think what we know is that the theatrical or the feature business will be one that probably has a variety of different forms of distribution moving forward.”

– AT&T CEO John Stankey speaking at Goldman Sachs Communicopia Conference
