To Athanasopoulos, Chinese audiences’ increasing demand for blockbusters and higher-re
上海品茶微信solution screens is part of the reason why premium film screenings are welcome.
“We saw strong demand in blockbusters, not only those (from) Hollywood but also Ch

Athanasopoulos was talking about the science-fiction hit The Wandering Earth during the Spring Festiv
上海品茶微信al holiday. IMAX China’s bet on the film garnered earnings of over 300 million yuan from the box office.
“We see that continuing to happen in the future … and that’s part of the
reason why we made an expansion plan to tap China’s fast-growing premium film scree 上海品茶微信
ning market, which we think is taking up a larger share of China’s overall box office market,” he added.
上海品茶微信女神会所IMAX China’s move to expand came amid growing concerns China is tempering demand for films.
Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University, sa
id although IMAX China set an expansion plan, the amount of new cinema 上海品茶微信
s (40) still seems to be modest. “The overall market performance might be an influence,” he added.
“The lower-than-expected box office performance this y 上海品茶微信女神会所ear is partly because of a drop in cin
ema visits, particularly in third-and lower-tier cities where demand is weakening,” Chen said.

“On one hand, rising ticket prices prevent many people from visiting cinema 上海品茶微信女神会所

preparatory work has been done in advance of the G20 meeting between the two leaders,” Lach
上海品茶微信man said. “The most that I am expecting from this meeting is an ag

“If that proves to be the case, markets could be disappointed,” he said.
Douglas Paal, vice-president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Pe 上海品茶微信女神会所
ace, told Xinhua that if there is agreement to keep talking, “Wall Street should be happy.”
“But I think Trump is more invested in the talks failing and helping with the 2020 elect 上海品茶微信

上海品茶微信女神会所The shared accommodation boom is sweeping across China, with transaction volume rising 37.5 percent year-on-year to 16.5 billion yuan ($2.4 billion) in 2018, a new report said on Tuesday.
The report, released by the State Information Center, shows the country’s main shared accommodation platforms offered 3.5 million housing units in nearly 500 cities last year.
Chengdu, Sichuan province topped all other cities in terms of the number of active users, followed by Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Xi’an in Shaanxi province. 上海品茶微信女神会所
According to the report, second- and third-tier cities are accelerating the push to embrace shared accommodation services that offer short-term low-cost lodging.
Lijiang in Yunnan province, Qinhuangdao in Hebei province and Guilin in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region have seen signi 上海品茶微信女神会所
ficant jumps in the number of short-term lodging platforms’ stayed nights, rising 650, 600 and 300 percent in 2018 respectively.
The report noted an increasing number of young people prefer to start a business in platforms that offer shared accommo
dation, as 70 percent of major shared accommodation platforms hosts were born in the 1980s and 1990s.
Specifically, more females prefer to be a host on those platforms, occupying 60 percent of the total on main shared accommodation platforms.
Vacationing with pets is a new trend in the market, the report said. More than 40 percent of sh
ared accommodation users have pets, among which 66.7 percent prefer taking pets on vacation.
The report came as the nation’s sharing economy marches into a new stage, where quality matters more than expansion speed. The report said the an
nual growth rate of the shared accommodation market is expected to remain around 50 percent over the next three years.
