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

inese-language films, which are increasingly welcomed by Chinese audiences.” 上海品茶微信女神会所

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.

A rough industry estimate from entertainment analysi

 上海品茶微信s website Dengta under online ticketing platform Taopiaopiao show

s cinema visits slumped by nearly 100 million to around 807 million in the first half of this year.

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

s, as cinemas stopped selling cheap tickets at 9.9 yuan or 19.9 yuan,” Chen said.

This helped strengthen Apple’s technical as well as no

n-technical initiatives in China, the latest of which is going to open later this summer – the company’s first design and development accelerator in China.

上海品茶微信The center, to be based in Shanghai, will provide technical support to developers who work on

Apple software. Through the facility, Apple will present lectures, seminars, experiments, speeches and tra

ining. It will also organize regular networking events to help the developer community in China and its上海品茶微信

neighborhood to improve the design, quality and performance of their products.

上海品茶微信女神会所The upcoming Shanghai facility will be in line with Apple’s recent thrust in China. S

ince 2017, it has set up four research and development centers in China – one eac

corporate job experience in the United States. She got a MBA from the University of California, Be

上海品茶微信女神会所rkeley and acquired master’s in electrical engineering from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.

Ge returned to China in 2017, and was impressed immediately by the nation’s r

“Chinese software developers have grown to be a very admirable community of innovators and they上海品茶微信

Now, over 2.2 million Chinese developers are active on Apple’s App Store which was上海品茶微信女神会所

launched in 2010. Their combined global sales on the platform have exceeded 200 billion yuan.

The number continues to grow as the California-based company s

teps up investments in China, the world’s largest consumer electronics market.
