Boxoffice Podcast

This Week on The Boxoffice Podcast: Daniel Loria, Rebecca Pahle, and Chad Kennerk look at the impact of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert film on the release schedule—and the missed opportunity of having a BARBENHEIMER-style phenomenon after Universal’s Exorcist: Believer
abandoned its release date and deprived the public of the EXORSWIFT at the box office. In our feature segment, Rebecca speaks with Santikos CEO Tim Handren on the circuit’s aggressive expansion from a regional Texas chain to one of the country’s ten-largest movie theater brands.
