“The Implications of the Biggest Legal Decision to Hit Hollywood in Decades.”
J. Christopher Hamilton, assistant professor of television, radio and film in the Newhouse School, was quoted by The Hollywood Observer for the story “The Implications of the Biggest Legal Decision to Hit Hollywood in Decades.” The article discusses a recent ruling by a New York federal judge to terminate the Paramount Consent Decrees after more than 70 years. Hamilton, an expert on the film industry and entertainment law, sees the ruling as an opportunity for movie theaters to revolutionize. “Instead of thinking of movie theaters as older institutions, what if it was an entertainment-based destination where there are games and food? Interactive theatrical experiences,” says Hamilton.
