CHELSEA FEARNLEY DEPUTY EDITOR Chelsea Fearnley WELCOME S pring is here – and I can definitely feel a change in the wind. Yes, the literal chill from the air has gone, and soon the frost from what has been a particularly rigid year for the UK box office will thaw, too. With cinemas set to reopen later this month, there have been whispers about how these businesses will operate in a world where new films are released on home entertainment before they hit the big screen. Some say the room was already on fire, and that Covid-19 just poured lighter fluid around the house. Others, such as senior box office analyst Delphine Lievens, are more optimistic. After speaking at length with her about how cinemas can work in harmony with home entertainment, and even benefit from it, I am also hopeful about the future of box office. More of this on page 27!
