The University cinema “did not see it” but will screen it during the break

The only Mendoza cinema that does not have the movie of the moment on the billboard is the Universidad cinema.

“It is a film for all audiences, so it could be projected in the University cinema,” argued Federico Cardone, in charge of the theater that operates in the Nave Universitaria de Ciudad. And he confided that they preferred to screen Despicable Me 4 – which is currently on the bill – instead of Inside Out 2. “The programming is closed a long time in advance and at that time It didn’t seem to us that it was going to be a phenomenon like it had happened with the past versions of Despicable Me“Explained Cardone.

And he acknowledged: “Seeing now how the issue is, we are reevaluating changing the movie and having Inside Out 2 during the winter holidays.”

This last Thursday Despicable Me 4 arrived at local cinemas and could not discourage the box office success of Inside Out 2.

Cardone stated that “The increase in viewers that this movie has generated is brutal.rarely seen and very difficult to understand.” This is because the cinema was in decline “with 60% fewer viewers prior to Inside Out 2.”

“I did not see the film, but from what I have read and what people who did see it have told me, it seems that two things come together to explain the phenomenon: the film is very good and it captured the adolescent and youth audience because they managed to understand what they wanted. now passes to that generation, It hit right in the middle of adolescents where the greatest frustration or ailment comes from anxiety.“.
