Written by: Selected Big Movie Members (see list below)
Date: July 7, 2004
The following statement appeared in the LF EXaminer after it was submitted by a group of exhibitors, producers and distributors who, in light of recent trends, share a concern for the future economic viability of the giant screen industry. This statement represents the first time a group of individual stakeholders have come together to make a joint public statement in support of original 15/70 films produced specifically for exhibition in giant screen theatres.
