Another industry is relying on the future of remote work to boost its own business.
AMC Theaters will transform some of its movie theaters into large Zoom video conferencing rooms to help distributed companies connect with one another for “cohesive virtual and in-person” events and experiences.
Through the Zoom Rooms at AMC partnership, companies can book movie theaters with around 75 to 150 seats for three-hour blocks, while giving attendees access to movie theater concessions.
“One of the lessons learned during the pandemic when so many of us were forced to work remotely was the importance of a reliable, dynamic communications platform,” said Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Theatres. “We also learned that even though we may be spread far apart, the ability to come together in person is as important as ever.”
The program is expected to launch next year across 17 U.S. cities.
