Exhibitor United Cinemas Intl. (UCI) recently opened its first multiplex in Brazil, the first in a series that the Universal/Paramount joint venture plans for Latin America's largest market.
The Brazilian government announced Monday the bidding procedure for cable and microwave delivery licenses in the country.
After resisting getting involved in filmmaking for many years, Latin America's biggest TV player, Globo, finally has decided to enter the sector.
