Exec with a Vue

Brit exhib taps vet Knibbs COO

LONDON — Steve Knibbs has been appointed as chief operating officer of U.K. exhibitor Vue Entertainment.

Knibbs was formerly senior VP for Northern Europe at rival exhibitor UCI. He left that post in May to join Vue, but was unable to start his new job until now.

Vue was formed in May when SBC Intl. Cinemas acquired Warner Village U.K., creating a chain of 40 state-of-the-art multiplexes with 384 screens.

Knibbs will report to Vue CEO Tim Richards. Richards commented, “Having been involved in every UCI multiplex opening since the first multiplex cinema in the U.K. at Milton Keynes in 1985, he is a seasoned exhibition executive who has an unrivalled track record for delivering results in the cinema industry.”
