Indonesian Cinema after the New Order

Thomas Barker

Hong Kong University Press

Indonesia remains underserviced by cinemas with a comparatively low cinema to population ratio. For much of the late New Order and after reformasi, exhibition remained dominated by the 21 Group, a crony company with film import monopoly rights. Recently, new investment has flowed into exhibition from the Blitzmegaplex company which is revealed to be well connected to New Order military figures. More recently new players have entered the industry including South Korea’s CGV who bought Blitz, the domestic conglomerate Lippo, and Raam Punjabi’s Platinum Cineplex chain, introducing both competition and global capital into the sector.
