CEO of AMC Entertainment
Sari Khumaiyes
Commercial Director of AMC Cinemas KSA
Saudi Arabia
As the world’s largest exhibition chain, AMC has endured a torrid year as a result of all the enforced lockdowns in the countries it operates in. Burning cash throughout the pandemic, AMC seemed to be on the verge bankruptcy. But having bought time with various debt and equity deals, AMC is looking forward to a restoration in box office revenues and is even buying up rival chains that went out of business. In Saudi Arabia, where it was the first company to open a cinema there, it now has 9 different venues and is pursuing expansion as KSA rapidly grows to become one of the world’s top ten box office markets.
