Disney announced Friday that all of its films slated for release by the end of the year will be exclusively screened in cinemas first, bringing relief to theaters anxious to reconnect with audiences after the coronavirus pandemic devastated their industry. The animated film Encanto will be released on the big screen Nov. 24 and will not appear on Disney's on-demand video platform until Dec. 24, the company said in a statement.

Other planned projects, including The Last Duel by Ridley Scott, Eternals by Marvel Studios and West Side Story by Steven Spielberg, will be screened in theaters for at least 45 days before they are released elsewhere. The decision was eagerly awaited by traditional cinemas after the entertainment giant recently chose to release a series of big productions such as Black Widow, Jungle Cruise and Cruella on its Disney+ platform, diverting part of their revenue.

'Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains' Exhibition Tour reaches Hollywood Boulevard

Pink Floyd fans can set the controls for the heart of Hollywood Boulevard, now that a touring version of an exhibition devoted to the group's 55-year history has touched down in the US, following a celebrated run across Europe.The group remains truly in vogue, and in Hollywood's former Vogue Theatre, in an installation of 'The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains' that encompasses more than 400 artifacts dating back to the late '60s, from handbills for the nascent band's first psychedelic club shows in London with Syd Barrett to the days of pigs on the wing and other sinister inflatables that have been inflated for meditative, museum-style gawking.

"I know just about everything there is to know about Pink Floyd," said Aubrey Powell, co-curator of the exhibition, offering Variety a tour on the eve of its opening. He wasn't being immodest: Besides co-designing famous cover artwork for albums like 'The Dark Side of the Moon' and 'Animals', Powell was a roommate of Barrett's in the '60s and saw it all go down. "But," he said, "the joy of it was actually discovering in various individuals' archives pieces that I had never seen."
