Brit plexes multiplying faster than revs, report sez

LONDON — The U.K. exhibition industry is teetering on the edge of a financial precipice, according to a report by Dodona Research.

Investment in new multiplexes is outstripping the rise in revenues, claimed Dodona, which specializes in analyzing exhib trends worldwide.
