ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY: An unfolding opportunity
Entertainment is now thought of as a commodity – which has to continuously evolve
with the current market supply and demand factors. It is a potential revenue generator for
the economy, though currently the share of entertainment revenue in India's GDP is very
less.

Entertainment & Media (E&M)


industry is a cyclical industry that
grows faster when the economy is
expanding. The filmed Entertainment
and Television segment dominate the
industry followed by the Print, Radio
and the Music segments. Churning out
nearly 1,000 films a year, the Indian film industry is the largest in the world. Now, aided
by technological advancements, the industry is set to take a further leap - across
production, exhibition and distribution.

The movie watching experience in India


has gone through many changes. Growth
in cable and satellite television in the
country since the early nineties emerged as a
major deterrent to cinegoers and has
adversely impacted cinema attendance. Then
the era of multiplexes dawned, wooing back a large number of cinegoers who had
stopped going to cinemas in the nineties. The days of long queues for tickets or heated
negotiations with the black-ticketeers, overcrowded shaky chairs, poor print quality and
distorted sound are passe.

INDIAN FILM INDUSTRY: An Overview
India’s multiplex industry is thriving on the back of rising disposable incomes,
favorable demographics, low screen density,
changing spending patterns and taste of
consumers, retail boom and the relaxation of
entertainment taxes by various State
Governments.

Multiplexes were the natural choice for


distributing movies in large cities. Space
was at a premium and several movies were
competing for limited number of screens.
Multiplexes not only increased the number of available screens, but also provided them
with excellent acoustics and enhanced picture display and luxurious, glamorous
aesthetics.

Several state governments have


provided incentives to encourage the
growth of multiplexes. The single
screen movie theatre has now
become a dying breed. Several
theatres are planning to upgrade to the
multiplex concept and hence provide a
boost to big screen cinema.
With better occupancy rates coupled with entertainment tax exemption benefits, it is
believed all players in this sector are set to achieve robust growth on back of aggressive
expansion plans supporting higher margins.
The multiplex’s steady proliferation in the metropolis’s and simultaneous penetration into
some smaller cities and towns testifies to its increasing popularity, coinciding with the
rise of disposable income in the hands of the urban Indian family.

Zankhana Shah (149)


The multiplexes manages to draw audiences to
the theatre with package deals, something for
everyone under one roof— well behaved
ushers, good security service, state-of-the-art
sound and projection quality, branded snacks,
hygienic toilets, shopping arcades, play areas,
restaurants and food courts, and ample parking
space. Demand for multiplex would remain
good as it provides a variety of films (4-5 movies of different genres) to the audience
coupled with shopping malls and food courts.

CONCERNS:
High set-up costs, withdrawal of tax breaks by state governments, intense competition
from unorganized players, film piracy, inferior content (of films) and a slowdown in
urban spending are among the major concerns that would hamper the prospects of this
industry..
Cinemas Fair Value Current screens Revenues/screens
(Rs.) (Rs. in mn.)
PVR Ltd 363 68 20.2
Adlabs Films 422 39 12.4
Shringar Cinemas 44 30 18.8
Inox Leisure 123 41 27.5

The urban population between the age group of


15-34 years is the most frequent movie going
section in the country and growth in this
segment would propel growth in the multiplex
segment too. A younger population tends to
have higher aspirations and will spend more as
it enters the earnings phase.

Multiplex advantage:

Zankhana Shah (149)


Multiplex cinemas offer significant economic advantages over similar size single-screen
theatres like better occupancy ratios, greater number of shows, better exploitation of
a movie and better cost management. Rise in consumption levels, changing lifestyles,
the availability of quality real estate and significant investments in malls are
expected to result in an increase in the size of the organized retail business in India. The
country’s organized retail market of $4bn is expected to increase its share of the total
retail market of $200bn to $15bn by 2010.

Multiplex in a mall is the mantra for managing junction of retailing and

ADLABS MULTIPLEXES
Introduction
Adlabs is transforming into an Entertainment behemoth with business starting from
Film Processing to Exhibition to Distribution, FM radio and Home video. FM radio
seems to be the first initiative that will roll out by Oct’06.
Adlabs foray into FM Radio business will further de-risk its business model and will
enhance the business prospects in the long run.
Key Highlights

Zankhana Shah (149)


 Adlabs’ film processing business continues to maintain its leadership position
with more than 65% market share in Western region and has grown at an avg. rate of
19% over the last 5 years. Its a high margin business (OPM of 42% in FY’06) and
this division contributed around 60% of total revenue in FY’06.
 Film exhibition is the latest focus area for the company and by 2009 total screens
with Adlabs would exceed 250 from the current 34 screens. EBIDTA margins which
are currently at 23 % continue to be second best in this industry (after Inox). Post
expansion, 70-75 % of its multiplexes would avail entertainment tax benefits.
 Overseas distribution division of Adlabs has rights for 5 big banner potential
blockbuster films of 2006-07; Krrish, Baabul, 36 China Town, Jaaneman and Guru.
With the margin of 15-20% in overseas distribution, the company expects to release
16-18 films every year, the highest by any single distributor.
 Adlabs is looking at the acquisition route as part of the company’s plan to emerge
as a big player in the rapidly growing segment of home video.
Introduction
Adlabs is a leading motion picture processing laboratory, incorporated in 1978. CEO &
MD, Adlabs Films, Mr. Manmohan Shetty is a highly respected figure in the Indian
Film Industry and is known for his astute business sense. He is one of the original
founders of Adlabs Films Limited. An arts graduate by qualification, Mr. Shetty has more
than 27 years of experience in film processing and Printing and currently looks after
strategic business planning, finance, business development and client interface. Today
Adlabs is a market leader in the entertainment industry with an integrated business
model covering the entire value chain from film production & processing to distribution,
exhibition, Home Video & FM radio.
Anil Ambani-led Reliance Capital acquired majority stake (51%) in Adlabs Films in
a deal valued at Rs 360 crore. As of March 31, ’06 ADAG held 54.9% stake in Adlabs
Films. Even as management control shifted to the new promoters the operations
continued under the existing management team (Mr. Manmohan Shetty and others).
The company has processed films for almost all production companies in Mumbai. It has
a 70 % market share in the 35 mm negative film processing and 60 % market share
in the 35 mm colour processing in the western region.

Zankhana Shah (149)


Adlabs setup the first Imax dome theatre that was open for public screening on 31st
March 2001. The company launched the first multiplex with 4 theaters in the same
premises as the IMAX Adlabs theatre in Oct’01
Company Visibility:
It is looking at spanning the entire value chain of the entertainment content carriageway;
the Anil Ambani group is ensuring its footprints across every possible facet of
entertainment. Ranging from television
to radio to films to exhibition to home
video, the ADAE group seems to have a
blueprint for every division in place, and
the kick-off into the media and
entertainment segment does not seem
too far off. As of now, Adlabs has
bagged 45 licenses in all, making it the
largest player in terms of number of
licenses owned including stations of existing players.
Film Distribution:
Earlier Adlabs in a 50:50 J.V with Mukta Arts was catering to overseas distribution
only but later Adlabs bought that 50% stake by paying little less than Rs 50 mn.
The Overseas distribution business commenced operations aggressively in November
2005 and has distributed over 15 titles till May’06. It has an excellent line up of potential
blockbuster movies in the current fiscal including Krrish (under Rakesh Roshan banner)
& Baabul (under Ravi Chopra banner)
Film Exhibition Business:
Adlabs entered the Film Exhibition Business in the year 2000, with the setting up of a
518 seat IMAX® Dome theatre, (The largest Dome Theatre in the world) along with
Mumbai's first multiplex (4 screens and 1314 seats). Currently Adlabs is having 9
multiplexes with 34 screens and 11450 seats and it’s planning to expand rapidly its
multiplex business in next 2-3 years.

7 P’S OF SERVICE MARKETING:

PRODUCT:
The theatre is no more only a product. It is divided into
Product + service = Experience

The core service is the movie showing hall in the theatre.


Basic service:

Zankhana Shah (149)


Providing with the food and beverages inside the multiplex, sitting arrangement for
everyone in the theatre
Expected service:
Quality of different services provided is the best, and there are 4 to 5 screens for better
choice to the customer. Clean and hygienic décor enhances the overall outlook of the
service.
Augmented service:
 Providing with bookstore, chocolate shop, gaming zone inside the theatre.
 Home delivery of tickets on just one phone call.
 Online booking of tickets for ease in booking of the same.
 Giving the customer a wholesome retail mall like experience in the theatre itself.
Potential service:
The customer is given sofa cum bed for watching a movie. Food and beverages served at
the seats to the customer. Bank ATM’s, Cheque drop collection boxes, credit card
collections, Internet banking terminals. Courier Agency, Post Box, Browsing / Computer/
Business Center with Video Conferencing, Std/ISD/ fax receiving & sending, Financial
services selling, Tele Shopping counters, Complaint centers for Cable TV/ Utilities,
Designer Seats for physically handicapped.

Other products available at the outlet are:


Crossword bookstore, coca-cola co. products, international chocolate counter, Kiosk of
other cosmetic products, Food from other suppliers, etc add up to the product as a
peripheral to the core service of the theatre.
PRICE:
Revenue Source of ADLABS:
Main source of revenue for multiplex business are Ticket revenue, Food & Beverage
income and Sponsorship income (Advertising revenue).
Ticket income is the largest contributor to the multiplex and is a function of Total
number of seats, Avg. no of daily shows, Avg. ticket price and avg. occupancy levels.

Zankhana Shah (149)


Ticket revenue contribution varies between 70-77% of the total revenue and that too
50-55% of revenues are collected during weekends where typically occupancies are
higher.
 Ticket prices of the outlet vary from Rs. 100 to 250/-
 The introductory rates of the multiplex were kept lower that was the advantage to
pull the crowd to the theatre. Around till 6 months the prices were Rs. 40-60/-
only.

Food & Beverage revenue is the revenue generated through sale of food items such as
popcorns, cold drinks and confectionary items. This part of revenue some times directly
proportionate to the avg. number of patrons and form 20-22% of total ticket revenue
generally.

Advertising revenue is relatively small source of income; it comes around 3-5% of total
revenue that includes on-screen and off screen advertisements. Apart from efforts to
increase revenues from this source multiplexes are now resorting to hitherto untouched
territories like in-theatre promotions alternative sources like live cricket matches
(which is now a craze for youngsters), F1 races and corporate screenings.
Areas like elevators, ticket counters, ticket jackets, seats, floors, walls, popcorn
containers and washrooms that were never used by traditional cinemas for advertising
are being exploited now.

Operating Cost of ADLABS:


Of the various costs incurred by multiplexes, entertainment tax and payments to
distributors are the major costs each taking away around 18-20% of the revenues. With
most players operating on leased properties, lease rentals steal away a further 8-10% of
the turnover.

Zankhana Shah (149)


The other costs include cost of Food & Beverages (F&B), employees, marketing and
utilities like electricity, water, security, maintenance, IT and telecom etc. but such
overheads are lower per screen since most of it is shared by multiple screens. In any case
Multiplexes enjoy better bargaining power with producers, distributors and F&B
suppliers.
Distributor cost is nothing but the cost incurred to acquire the film content. Distributor
cost is normally paid as a % of the remainder of the total box office collection after
netting off all taxes (notional or actual). It account for 30-40% of the total ticket revenue.
F&B cost is cost of various food and beverages, which is 6-7% of total cost. Lease rental
cost varies between 10-15% depending on the location of the properties.

PLACE:
All Cinemas are located at premium locations and symbolize excellence in design,
ambience and service. Every Cinema is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, so as to
provide a moviegoer with a superior cinema viewing experience.
Imax Adlabs is in the inner areas of the wadala and not on the main highway, and hence
the patrons had to travel a lot after coming to main road. So theatre started with the bus
service before ½ an hour of show timing, making it easy for patrons to travel till the
multiplex. The introductory rates of the multiplex were kept lower that was the advantage
to pull the crowd to the theatre. The whole place is developed with complexes and whole
residential area has been created. Just through one multiplex the whole area is now
developed with housing complexes.

POSITIONING TO TARGET GROUP:


Psychographics
Young Upwardly mobile people with high disposable income constitute a substantial
percentage of our patron profile.

Zankhana Shah (149)


PROMOTION:
Adlabs indulges into different kinds of indoor and outdoor promotional activities.
The cinema advertising concept is new in India. It's a new medium that is capable of
producing advertising recall that is up to five times greater than that elicited by television
commercials.
At our various Cinemas, you can choose to have a host of on-the-floor promotion
activities. These activities complement and support conventional media activities.
Various interactive activities can take place at Imax cinemas:

wonderful opportunity to display floor or wall displays.

Movie Associations:
This is one of the most interesting ways to get noticed. One can tie up with a particular
movie across all of their properties:
 On-the-floor contests based on the theme of the movie
 Press advertisements, radio spots, flyers, banners and standees inside the cinema
 Web advertising and newsletters
Some recent success stories include:
 Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift & DC Design.
 Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna & DNA After Hrs.
 Superman Returns & Mattel Toys.
First Cut
One can choose to be a part of their paid previews on Thursday nights. The idea is to
target film buffs and opinion leaders. The following are the ways to grab their attention:

Zankhana Shah (149)


 The brand's logo can be placed on press ads, slides, flyers, newsletters and
standees along with periodic mention in radio spots
 On the ground contest, promoting it via press and radio
Associations with festivals:
Generally, movie festivals attract people with specific tastes. More often than not, they
have their likes and preferences in place. They generally recommend ways to help you
associate with this kind of an audience. A different festival will attract a different profile.
Hence, they require a custom designed approach. They help one to decide what approach
will work for your brand so as to ensure maximum impact. Generally, the following
activities are recommended
 On-the-floor contests
 Press ads, radio spots, flyers, newsletters and standees
Online promotions:
Regular online promotion increases hits on the sites and hence increases brand awareness
& loyalty.
E.g.: Buy 5 tickets online for superman and win merchandise of superman like bags,
watches & key chain.

PEOPLE:
Every new employee in the organization is given indepth training and are asked to get in
sync with organization policies and values. The technology is taught to help them gain
efficiency.
 Workplace free of Harassment
The Company is committed to providing a work environment free of discrimination
and harassment ie. a congenial environment motivating the employees to give their
optimum output. The Company’s anti-harassment policy applies to all persons
involved in the operation of the Company and prohibits unlawful harassment of other
employees including supervisors, outside vendors, clients.
 Healthy and productive work environment
The influence of drugs and alcohol on the job is absolutely prohibited.

Zankhana Shah (149)


 Safety in Workplace
The safety of employees in the Workplace is a primary concern of the Company.
 Each employee must acquire appropriate and sufficient knowledge of
requirements relating/affecting/regulating his duties while executing his functions in
day to day business to enable him to recognize his individual responsibilities and also
be able to guide his subordinates to function within the framework of applicable laws,
rules and regulations.
 Confidentiality
 Misrepresentation for personal profits/gains
 Expense shall not be reimbursed by the company.
 Customer Relationships
If the nature of an employee’s job responsibilities puts him in contact with any
Company customers or prospective business clients, it is critical for him to remember
that he represents the Company to the people with whom he is dealing. He is hence
required to act in a manner that creates value for the Company, helps to build a
relationship based on trust and goodwill thus enabling the Company to capitalise on
this customer relationship to nurture its growth. The Company and its employees
have provided services for many years and have built up significant goodwill over the
time.

From box office to back office
Vista’s ticketing software covers the gamut of Adlab’s operations—right from box-office
to the MIS reports—and forms the core of the company’s operations. All the other IT
requirements and installations have been built around this package. Vista can be broadly
categorised into five functional areas—Back office module, box-office module,
concessions module, signages module and IVR call centre module.
IT in the F&B counter
The Concessions module ensures that details of the total stock is fed into the system and
then distributed to the five refreshment counters. Every transaction is locked at the point
of sale. The online stock updates us with real-time inventory balances.
Security Systems:
The company also has special devices for monitoring staff. Every employee is given a
‘proximity card’, which regulates their access over the premises of the theatre. For
instance, the multiplex has designated people for designated areas, and the log of every
person entering official premises is entered into the system.

One can advance book Tickets for any day any show any theater at any place. We have
evolved multiple mechanisms like Virtual card, Smart Card, Per-paid card, Scratch card,

Customer Satisfaction Survey:

Zankhana Shah (149)


To have a better understanding of the service provided by adlabs, a consumer satisfaction
research was conducted. The survey was conducted among people who have experienced
the service offered by Imax adlabs. The samples were randomly picked up from
individuals who were at the outlet as well as other individuals who have had a prior
experience at Imax. The respondents come from different communities, life-styles and
different age groups.
These individuals were asked various questions pertaining to their eating experience and
attitude towards Adlabs. They were also asked to rank various attributes like the quality
of the food, the service time, price, etc on a scale of 1 to 5. The analysis of the data has
been given below:
Customer satisfaction is another key factor in the Adlabs Theatre. Complaints are
attended and rectified at once. Customer Service is ensured for the audience right from
the booking of the theater till he leaves the theatre after the show.

Most of the respondents were aware of Imax as a multiplex, and are satisfied with the
overall experience at the theatre.
 The awareness about the Imax was majorly due to the Ads in the newspaper about
the dome theatre ad which is one of its kind.
 Very high word of mouth is also a reason why the theatre was a hit.
 There are more number of people coming with friends during the show timing of
3-6 and with family during show timing of 9-12
 Tickets are booked just before the show but online ticketing and phone booking is
also very highly rated.
 Tickets are not bought in advance by coming to the theatre as its too much in the
interiors.
 Not all the visits by a single individual is planned. But the availability of the
tickets is not the major issue with the theatre.
 International Chocolate counter at Imax is visited least by patrons. Mostly loved
counter is food & beverages.

advance before the show to let the kids play to the fullest.
