There’s a lot of talk these days about how the cinema experience is dying. But when done right — as it used to be at Sundance Kabuki, and as it is at Alamo Drafthouse — it’s a fantastic experience.³ It’s worthy of a night out.

I am so relieved to hear someone else expressing this. I’ve felt this way for at least fifteen years (I’m 44) and I absolutely *hate* what cinemas have become. The experience should be magical. It should be special. It should feel like we’re in a kind of church (for whatever value of “church” exists in your life), and not like we’re walking around a mall.

I want to make the Fuck You money, so that I can do what Tarantino did with the New Beverly, only on a larger scale. I don’t think it’s a path to a billion dollars, but I think it’s a model that can sustain itself and make people happy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
