August 06th 2016 marked the 21st birthday of Vista Entertainment Solutions, Vista Group's flagship and founding business. Reaching such a milestone is normally cause for celebration and a chance to tell a few stories about the journey to adulthood - maybe even pull out some old family photographs you thought (hoped?) everyone had forgotten about.
In the final quarter of 2016, many of us in the film industry are gearing up for the end-of-year boom, anticipating holiday releases and big weekends. Here at Vista, we’re also preparing for our own blockbuster event, due to premiere early next season; the biennial Vista Customer Conference. The March 2017 event promises to be extra special, not only because it coincides with Vista’s 21st birthday, but also because for the first time, we will host our first Vista Group Conference, complete with presentations, demonstrations and discussion about all of the offerings across our businesses.

I remember the first time I read the BFG as a child of seven or eight while in the back of my grandparents’ car on our way to Wales for a holiday. I was frequently travel-sick when young, especially when reading in the car, but refused to put the book down. I’ve got similar memories for many of Roald Dahl’s books, but The BFG was always my favorite.
When I was a child, going to the cinema was an experience everyone appreciated. There were staff to help you every step of the way. I’m not suggesting we should go back to those days, but I was intrigued to visit a cinema a while ago that had gone ‘POS-less', and there wasn't quite the same service feel.
Finding Nemo was Pixar’s fifth release and, in my opinion, their first perfect film. They’ve repeated this feat a couple of times, but this was their first with no flaws: every joke found its mark, every emotional beat was hit, every character was unique, and the pacing was perfect. So its sequel, Finding Dory, has big shoes to fill.
