Foreign Exhibs Get Forum

For the first time in the history of the National Assn. of Theater Owners and Showest, foreign exhibs will participate in formal discussions with their American counterparts. Delegates from 17 countries will assess the film industry’s increasing globalization during a daylong powwow Feb. 4 at NATO/Showest in Las Vegas.

A record 400 overseas delegates will attend the National Assn. of Theater Owners confab, up from last year’s high of 323.

“This has to be an historic event,” said Tim Warner, NATO/Showest general chairman. “There is a new order in world exhibition. International boxoffice is getting more and more on a par with domestic boxoffice. The overseas release pattern of U.S. films is getting closer and closer to the U.S. break.”

Panelists will include Myron Karlin, Motion Picture Export Assn. of America prez; Ted Shugrue, prez of Triumph Releasing, distribution arm of Columbia Pictures Entertainment, and president of Triumph’s overseas distribution wing, Columbia Tri-Star Film Distributors; Anthony Manne, exec v.p. of Triumph Releasing; Salah Hassanein, prez of Warner Bros. Intl.; Stanley Durwood, chairman/CEO of AMC Entertainment; and Stephen Perrin, managing director of Europe Entertainment Data Intl.
