Tech Innovations from CinemaCon 2021 Aim to Boost Movie Theaters’ Recovery

CinemaCon 2021 provided an opportunity for some of the world’s leading cinema technology companies to meet with exhibition’s top executives for the first time since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. The crisis has exposed cinema vendors to the same disruption and upheaval currently affecting exhibitors, with global sales stopping suddenly in March of 2020 and only now crawling back to operation.

What Movies Get Wrong About Hypnosis

Hypnosis in the movies and TV is something that many people have been fascinated by since the question is usually ‘Can they really do that?’, but the best answer is usually to tell people that it’s a movie. There are some truths when hypnosis is being used in movies since there is a great deal of focus that goes into the very real practice of it. But one thing to remember in the real world is that hypnosis is something that’s often used as a form of therapy, not a cheap parlor trick that can be pulled out when one wants to entertain their family or friends. There are a lot of ethics and morals that go into the practice of hypnosis since if someone does ‘go under’ it’s very possible that there might be ramifications that might end up endangering them as well as the hypnotist given that this practice is capable of pulling up various moments from a person’s subconscious, which could be dicey with some people. Here are a few ways that the movies get hypnosis wrong.
