Village Roadshow restructures

Crawford passes on contract renewal, exhib moving HQ

SYDNEY — Village Roadshow’s international exhibition operations will be restructured, and its headquarters will be moving from London to Melbourne.

Move comes after 25-year vet chairman and co-chief executive John Crawford decided not to seek renewal of his contract when it expires in December.

Village’s exhibition restructuring and consolidation will include merging many U.K. functions with Village’s joint venture partner Warner Bros.

Like rival Oz exhibitors Hoyts and Greater Union, Village is also cutting back in its overseas expansion program, based on below-par performances from operations in Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland.
