The movie industry received good news Wednesday, with Amazon committing more than $1 billion a year for theatrical releases.

The movie industry has had a rough couple of years as the pandemic took a toll on in-person attendance. Amazon is deeply entrenched in the industry — for an internet company — thanks to its Prime Video service and its MGM studio acquisition.

The news led to a significant boost to cinema stocks, according to CNBC.
