Abstract:

This thesis analyzes the current transition to digital cinema projection technologies within the film exhibition business. The author begins by discussing two historical cases of technological change in film exhibition technology, and then identifies the corporations that successfully controlled periods of technological change in order to solidify their position atop the film industry. In drawing from these historical case studies, the author examines the current transition to digital cinema projection technologies by discussing the structure of the film exhibition business and identifying those exhibitors that are controlling the transition to digital cinema. The author finds that the top three exhibitors - Regal Cinemas, AMC Entertainment, and Cinemark - are controlling digital cinema through two joint ventures: Digital Cinema Implementation Partners (DCIP), and National CineMedia (NCM).
