|Online competition is fierce, but cinemas will survive|
So the answer to the debate, from CMG's viewpoint, is that all content providers are needed as the studios alone can't produce nor finance enough quality content to quench the consumers' thirst for quality entertainment - the Netflixs of the world are needed. There is no logical reason why cinemas can't screen the streamers original content in addition to studio generated films.
Cinemas provide the venues for great stories to be told by great artists and it is not only the high-impact action super hero films but all types of films.
This is not an either/or issue it is about providing cinemas with a steady stream of good 'big screen' content of all genres from all sources.
