Boxoffice Podcast

In this episode of the Boxoffice Podcast, co-hosts Rebecca Pahle, Shawn Robbins, and Chad Kennerk discuss this weekend’s second annual National Cinema Day, predicting which films could see the biggest boost from the industry-wide celebration of moviegoing. Later in the episode, the trio runs down the fall slate, highlighting the potential big earners–and big question marks–on the calendar from now through the end of November. In our feature segment, Boxoffice Podcast co-host Daniel Loria speaks with Jeff Geiger of NCG Cinemas, receiving the Statesman of the Year Award at this year’s ShowSouth.
