David said it was an exciting time to join Vue as the cinema exhibition industry rebuilds from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Over the past 18 months we’ve seen tremendous pent-up demand for the theatrical experience and – with many great films coming out later this year – this is a pivotal time for the film industry,” she said.
