Even if you’re a cinema junkie, going to a public movie theater may well be the last thing on your social to-do list during a pandemic—but you can now rent out theaters for private screenings for a reasonable cost.

Cinemas have struggled alongside the rest of the entertainment industry with shutdowns and social distancing, which is why several companies, including AMC and Cinemark, have opened their doors to small, private group gatherings.

Here’s how to rent a private movie theater.

Rent out an AMC theater

AMC Theatres is renting its auditoriums for groups of up to 20 people at a starting price of $99 (plus tax). Depending on the movie and location, prices may go up to $349. These are the films currently available for private showings:

  • 2 Hearts
  • The Conjuring
  • The Conjuring 2
  • The Curse of La Llorona
  • Hocus Pocus
  • Honest Thief
  • How to Train Your Dragon
  • Jumanji: The Next Level
  • Jurassic Park
  • Monsters, Inc.
  • The New Mutants
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Shrek
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Tenet
  • The War With Grandpa

To book, you’ll fill out an online form with your desired movie and preferred date, time and theater location. AMC says it may take 3 days to review your request, and advises you to finalize your booking at least a week in advance.

You can customize your experience, too: add concessions (popcorn and drink vouchers sold at an extra cost), rent a microphone so you can personally welcome your guests ($100), or nix the 15 minutes of previews before your film.

Rent out a Cinemark theater

Cinemark is also renting out its theaters for private groups. The company has a $99 deal similar to AMC’s (with $49 promos in some locations on certain nights), but the process is a little different; you’ll book all the tickets for an existing public showtime instead. Since these bookings are limited, they may be sold out in your area. Check what’s available at your nearest cinema.

Otherwise, Cinemark also offers what they call premium private screenings, which are more customizable (and more expensive) rental packages.

Check your local theaters

Your local theater or regional theater chain may also be doing private parties—Harkins (locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas) and Megaplex (Utah) offer such screening packages, for example.

The Finsocial entity will request a license to operate as a digital bank starting next year

The banking system is preparing for the arrival of new players next year. To the requests of BTG Pactual, JP Morgan and Lulo Bank to operate as banks in the country will be added that of Finsocial, a company that grants loans to public sector teachers and pensioners from Colpensiones, Fopep (Public Pension Fund), Casur (Retirement Salaries Fund of the National Police), Positiva and Fiduprevisora.

Santiago Botero, CEO of Finsocial, confirmed in an interview with LR that he expects the fintech to become a 100% digital bank by the first half of next year. However, the estimated time will depend on the length of the validations and analysis by the Financial Superintendency to grant the license.

“Right now a new partner is coming to Finsocial. There are five companies interested and I estimate that before the end of the year all the details of this transaction will be known. The firms behind this operation are foreign, there are North Americans and there is also a very large European fund, ”added Botero. Once this operation is completed, the license application will proceed.

The CEO of Finsocial also assured that the bet to become a bank occurs because, first, they have the resources to achieve it and, second, because they have already done the most difficult thing that these entities do, which is to learn to lend money and know how to manage the risk in those operations.

Taking into account the experience they have in the sector, Botero advanced some details of how the entity will work, once the Superfinancial gives them the guarantee. The first thing the executive highlighted is that the entity will raise money, offer other lines of loans that go the same way with its commitment to “safe credits”, and will have a credit card.

“We are doing the papers with Mastercard, but I think we will also have with Visa,” said Botero, who added that they will have a savings account in which they offer some type of return to customers and will have collection mechanisms such as CDT and Other than products that there are and that adjust to the needs of the users.

With the start-up of the operations of Finsocial, Lulo Bank, JP Morgan and BTG Pactual as banking entities in the coming months, the Colombian financial system will complete 29 banks, of which it has been confirmed, so far, that two would be neobanks, which are Finsocial and Lulo Bank. It is worth clarifying that Nubank will not yet function in Colombia as a bank.

In the midst of this avalanche of requests and the fact that about 90% of the municipalities in Colombia are not yet implementing electronic payment systems, according to a study by Visa, Botero said that betting on a digital offer is not a limitation because plans to take advantage of the 29 offices they currently have as an anchor to teach users about digital banking, as they have been doing so far.

Finsocial is committed to becoming a bank at a time when it has 30,000 clients and a loan origination goal of $ 290,000 million, at the end of this year, which would represent an increase of 30%.

Based on bets such as that of Finsocial, David Nieto Martínez, professor and coordinator of the financial area of ​​the Faculty of Economic and Administrative Sciences of the El Bosque University, assured that one of the sectors that has had to reinvent itself the most is the financial one, the which had a greater pressure in terms of digitization due to the different mobility restrictions that were had. This conjuncture increased the need for 100% digital entities such as neobanks.

Manuel de la Cruz, president of Banco Santander Colombia, assured that this is great news, as this helps to improve competition and competitiveness. “We hope that the regulator will ask these banks the same requirements as traditional banks,” he added.

Radiography of the sector
The four entities that are lining up to start operating as banks come at a time when the profits of the 25 entities reached an accumulated $ 3.53 trillion at the end of July of this year, that is, 42.5% below the levels registered during the same period of 2019, when profits were $ 6.14 trillion, according to data from the Financial Superintendency.

In addition to entering a financial system that is hit by the economic crisis unleashed by COVID-19, the new entities will have to face a scenario in which Bancolombia and Davivienda are the banks that moved more than 69% of total operations registered by the financial system at the end of June 2020, with 2,701 million and 515 million transactions, respectively.

The movements of the two banks occurred in the middle of a context in which the number of operations that Colombians carried out through the financial system was 4,663 million at the end of the first semester. These moved a total of $ 3,599 billion, which represented an increase of 10.5% compared to the data for the second half of 2019.

It is worth noting that operations in virtual channels continue to increase. Through these, 74% of the total operations were carried out: 2,469 million through mobile banking and 966 million through internet, with shares of 53% and 21%, respectively.

Finsocial’s bets aimed at supporting communities
Botero assured that in the midst of the crisis that the country is going through, Finsocial has committed to creating products that support the economic development of different communities. A sample of this bet is that the entity launched three initiatives during the pandemic, which are FinsoAmigo, Finsoalivio and FinsoTienda. “To this is added that Finsocial plans to issue social bonds for $ 160,000 million. We plan for these bonds to come out before November ”, added the CEO of the company.

Vincenzo De Luca returns to Fazio (defined by the governor Fratacchione himself). The guest president on Rai Tre at the show “Che tempo che fa” after 9pm.

“From the advances that I received in the government dpcm there are interesting things but also elements of ambiguity. For example, there is the sale of take-away food until midnight, except for consumption on the spot nearby, who can measure the proximity? The governor of Campania Vincenzo De Luca said this to “Che tempo che fa”. “I also see – he said – one thing that does not convince me, the mayors can prohibit mobility in the busiest neighborhoods, it seems to me that we are still in elements of unclearness”.

On dpcm school provides the Dad as done in Campania. We have not closed the schools, but started Dad. We had 800 cases in the schools and therefore we made a balanced decision. If we want to save ourselves in Campania we have to decide first and in a more rigorous way ”, explains Vincenzo De Luca in connection with Che Tempo Che Fa.

“Luckily there is regional autonomy, I think about my demographic problem. I expect faster government decisions. I see too many meetings. For a week I have been asking for more doctors but nothing from Commissioner Arcuri ”, continues the Governor.

“Halloween is imbecility, it only serves to increase useless consumption, I don’t think I have created a diplomatic accident. We think about saving lives and there are some idiots who are preparing to party. This nonsense cannot be tolerated by us. It just counts how many human lives we save. The people who died in Campania are the lowest in Italy by population ”, explains De Luca.

Cardi B deletes Twitter following critique of Offset reunion

Cardi B has deleted her Twitter account.

The rapper, 28, took to Instagram — where her account, which has over 77 million followers, is still live — on Saturday to explain her decision to leave the other social-media platform. Primarily, she said in her rant on Instagram Live, she was upset at critique of her recent reunion with rapper Offset, who she filed for divorce from last month, and generally with being told what’s best for her.

“I’m so tired that because of y’all I’ve gotta continuously explain myself,” she said in the video, Billboard reported, adding that she’s not even the one who made her own divorce public, yet she has to deal with the fallout over it. “I didn’t put my divorce out there, a f - - king court clerk put it out there. And because people are making rumors up, ‘Oh, this guy has a girl pregnant,’ this and that, I have to address it.”

Despite followers having a field day over the reunion, Cardi said it’s actually one of the last things on her mind.

“Offset is not the only f - - king problem that I deal with,” Cardi said. “To be honest with you, my marriage is one of the least worries that I have right now.”

She maintains hope the pair may work their relationship out and prove haters wrong.

“You guys want to be harassing this n - - - -. Bro, if I work things out, why are you going to this n - - - -‘s Twitter to harass him? That s - - t don’t make no f - - king sense,” she said. “I love my fans and I’m thankful and I’m grateful for everything you do, but some of you really be acting like I sleep with ya.”

Being inundated with unrequested advice makes her feel like a Disney Channel star.

“A whole bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life like I’m motherf - - king Ariana Grande or something,” Cardi said, “like I came from Disney or something.”

In other social-media woes this month, Cardi also accidentally posted a topless photo to Instagram.

The Flaming Lips performed a concert with the band and fans encased in plastic bubbles

The rock musicians from Oklahoma City are literally blowing up in 2020, using inflatable human-sized bubbles to defend themselves and fans against Covid-19 while finding a way to play live.

Performing at The Criterion in their hometown on Monday evening, The Flaming Lips placed themselves — and all attending fans — inside individual plastic spheres. The concert — which was part live show, part music video shoot — was born out of a sketch doodled by Wayne Coyne during the pandemic’s early days, the frontman told CNN.

“I did a little drawing… where I drew a picture of The Flaming Lips doing a show in 2019. And I’m the only person in the space bubble, and everybody else is just normal,” Coyne told CNN during a phone interview on Friday. “Then (I did another drawing with) The Flaming Lips playing a show in 2020. The exact same scenario, but I’m in a bubble, and so is everybody else.”

At the time, Coyne says, the idea was more or less a social commentary on the state of virus, with the thinking that Covid-19 would never linger long enough to see the bubble experiment fully inflate.

“I don’t think anybody would have thought … in the middle of March that this is still going to be going, you know, eight months later. I think we all thought this is a month, this is maybe two months, but we’re going to get a handle on this,” he said.

Coyne and the band first unveiled the concept during a May visit to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

That inspired them to keep going.

“We do a couple of songs with about 30 people in the bubbles. And we start to think, ‘Well, you know, just from doing that, we start to get an idea that we could actually do it, you know, and it could actually happen,'” Coyne revealed.

The “space bubbles” have long been a part of The Flaming Lips stage shows, so Coyne and company were familiar with a series of inflatable orbs. After setting the specs, the band ordered 100 bubbles from China, and this unique music event – one first drawn up on Coyne’s sketchpad — was ready to pop.

“Since May, the desire to see the live music has just gotten, you know, more, more amplified,” he told CNN, noting that fans interested in test-driving the experience were asked to arrive at The Criterion between 6:30 and 7 p.m. ET.

“Right at a little after six, we already had enough people.”

With a couple hundred fans floating about, The Flaming Lips performed a dance remix of “Assassins of Youth” and “Brother Eye,” a pair of tracks from their latest LP, “American Head.”

Coyne captioned an Instagram post from the show with the word “Yessss!!!” — a nod to the feat they had collectively pulled off.

“I like the way this looks, because you can get as excited as you want, you can scream as much as you want, you just can’t infect the person next to you, no matter what you forget about, how excited you get,” he said. “That barrier is still there, they’re protected, and you’re protected… that part of it is what we really felt like was the success,” he said.

So are bouncing bubbles, with fans and bands equally encased, the future of live music, at least amid this global pandemic?

“I’m willing to do everything I can, you know, to say, I think we could do this, and this would be absolutely safe,” says Coyne, who said that ultimately he’s holding out hope for a vaccine.

“We, as The Flaming Lips, we like the idea that we are doing something different…. I think it could be cool. It could be fun. And we could all have a, you know, a crazy unique experience,” he said.

“For the time being.”

This is the plan to prepare the commercial landing of the Swedish multinational Ikea in the Chilean market

Financial Newspaper – Santiago

It is not that they have to speak Swedish, or know a complete Abba album, but the 60 people who prepare the arrival of Ikea to Chile have been learning for months about the culture of the iconic furniture and decoration store. And from your country of origin.

Since May 17, 2018, when Falabella hit the ground running and announced that it had acquired the franchise to install the brand created 75 years ago by Ingvar Kamprad in Chile, Colombia and Peru, the work began incessantly. US $ 600 million were allocated to refurbish premises and hire personnel.

In addition, a regional board of directors was formed chaired by the former corporate general manager of Home Improvement, Enrique Gundermann and made up of Alejandro Arze, Jordi Gaju, Juan Fernando Correa and Sergio Muñoz. All men from Falabella.

Nothing random
And the process has been quiet, in part, because many of the decisions have to be made with the permission of Europe. According to those who know the business, the Nordics have an impressive level of detail, especially for the Chilean standard.

And it is that anyone who has entered an Ikea store in Paris, Madrid or Stockholm perceives the same distribution of the aisles, and even very similar music and aromas. And all that, they want to transfer it to Santiago, Bogotá and Lima. Nothing can be left to chance, they emphasize.

The first thing was to find locations, or rather to choose which Homy stores would switch to the Ikea format, since the Homy stores will gradually disappear, although they will remain as a brand within the Sodimac Homecenter and on sodimac.com. The Homy of the Kennedy Open in Las Condes and the Tottus of the Plaza Oeste in Cerrillos were chosen.

In the case of Chile, the locations should be opening in the first quarter of 2022, for Colombia and Peru there is no date, but yes or yes it will be after Chile.

It was first planned to do it in early 2021 in Santiago, but the pandemic delayed everything. Even several months the work stopped completely, although inside the Open Kennedy store, for example, it is still used as a kind of warehouse, to deliver the sales made through the website.

The place of delivery to the client is right in the Sodimac of the same shopping center of the Falabella group next to Parque Arauco. But in parallel with the search and commissioning of these locations, they had to put together a team.

Well located places, with a lot of neighboring residential sector and with different socioeconomic segments. While in Colombia it will be in the Calima shopping center, which Mall Plaza has just acquired; and in Lima, there is still no defined place.
