Por New York Times: Stephen Heyman en la julio 8, 2015

My Weekend: Richard Gelfond

Por Newsweek: Felicity Capon en la junio 19, 2015

The chief executive of IMAX enjoys his Manhattan roof garden and the cultural variety of New York – but can't switch off from the job he loves.

Saturday morning
The first thing I do when I wake up is get on the email, so I can see how the movies performed on Friday night. Then I stretch and go on the elliptical machine. If the weather's nice I'll play tennis. I love the weekends because you can have an exercise routine, and get back in control of your body. Then my wife Peggy and I usually have breakfast; she'll prepare hard boiled eggs and English muffins, or bagels and cream cheese.

Saturday afternoon
We live in the West Village in New York, so in the afternoon we tend to walk around the city. We always stop for sushi or dim sum for lunch. Back home, I'll check the email again, and read the newspaper. We might sit in our roof garden – having outdoor space in Manhattan is truly a luxury. Then I'll get on the phone with IMAX in Los Angeles and see what the various news sites are saying about the movies.
