AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. Chief Executive Officer Adam Aron said the domestic box office won’t rise to pre-pandemic levels this year and may still fall short in the subsequent two years.

Studios are just starting to release major films at a pre-pandemic pace again, and the industry is still assessing the new habits of moviegoers, Aron said in an interview at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas this week. By 2024, theaters will probably start making close to what they did in 2019, according to Aron, but they’ll have to continue to be flexible to survive.
