ALSO, when you leave a job, it's cool to have a completed film all ready to go. Also, while she considers her options regarding distribution, etc, she went ahead and distributed it by herself for free.

Cinema Spotlight: Tell me about your favorite theaters

Every Thursday I'm going to spotlight a theater that screens 35mm prints and I'd love to hear from you about your favorites. What makes the theater so special to you? What are some memorable screenings you've attended? These can be theaters anywhere in the world. Email me at and let me know. I will post your personal stories each week, along with the histories of these theaters. Hope to hear from you!

Documentary Short: "This Film Was Shot On Digital"

Check out this cool film directed by Ian Mantgani. "Short documentary on the "tidal wave" of digital cinema replacing traditional celluloid exhibition, featuring thoughts from projectionists and other cinema workers."

Out of Print - A Documentary about the New Beverly Cinema

Julia Marchese is making a documentary about The New Beverly Cinema and she needs your help!  Please visit the Kickstarter page and pledge if you can.

About the project:
"In a time when the multiplex is king, and digital is taking over, this film will accentuate a nearly bygone era of cinema - where moviegoers came not only to watch a film, but also to meet up with other cinephiles and connect. This documentary will highlight the importance of this cultural gem and why the experience of watching a classic film for the first time, on 35mm, with an audience can never be replicated at home. I take this fight for 35mm very seriously -  I started a petition last year asking studios to let their film prints remain available to revival theaters indefinitely. I successfully raised 10,000 signatures from movie lovers in over 60 countries around the world. We here at the New Bev truly care about film, and with the digital conversion happening all around us, the time to make this film is now.
"Your donation will be allowing me to work with - and pay fairly - a crew I know and trust, to use professional equipment, to produce quality promotional materials, to cover taxes, fees and to create a comprehensive archive of New Beverly calendars, photographs, articles and advertisements. I will also be  traveling to other revival cinemas to document their difficulties, successes and their importance." -- Julia Marchese
