Art Cinemas Dying? No Way!

In case you thought that we were approaching some kind of art film apocolypse, I have good news. Art film theaters are thriving, wherever they are managed by people who really know what they are doing, and who really care. I’d like to offer up one example.  The Miami Beach Cinematheque, one of the venues on our Emerging Cinemas Network, has just announced plans to move into new, larger quarters. This is great news not just because it shows that such an institution can still thrive in the age of i-stuff, but the increase in seating capacity will enable larger grosses for distributors out of a market that should be one of the best in the country. Check out the link below and be blown away.

    Thanks Ira. It is a pleasure to be part of the Emerging Network, and we are proud to be one of your examples of a thriving (yet grass-roots-and-hard-working-to-get-there) organization and venue. The new MBC will be open this summer, but not until all elements come together to make it happen. Miami, true, is a very tough market, and should have been a thriving art cinema city long ago, but with perseverance it is getting there!
