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.
