Awards

The National Association of Theatre Owners has honored filmmaker Paul Feig with its second annual spirit of the industry award.

Feig was presented the honor on Monday night as part of Nato’s annual fall meetings at the Beverly Hilton, attended by more than 200 exhibitors.

“When it comes to believing in the full-on theatrical experience, and the magic that ensues when the lights go down in a darkened auditorium, Paul Feig has no equal,” noted Nato president and CEO John Fithian.

Feig’s new romantic comedy, “Last Christmas,” hits theaters on Nov. 8. The Universal film stars Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Emma Thompson, and was written by Thompson and playwright Bryony Kimmings.
