Re: The Death of Cinema/Frightfest

One thing I forgot to add was that one positive is the possibility of independent cinemas surviving, given requisite funding. I note that Prince Charles has got a grant to help keep it buoyant and in the long run you'd expect these kind of post-theatrical/giant DVD player-type cinemas to have a stro...

Re: The Death of Cinema/Frightfest

Thanks for the post Ian. I hope all those in Tier 4 are OK and will still be OK when your tier is reduced come next Autumn when the vaccinations should be, well somewhere near complete, or just being phased in, or whatever. I say this as someone who hasn't seen even a sniff of the sheer radiance of ...

The Death of Cinema/Frightfest

1/ Yes, a click-bait title. 2/ Yes, this post is probably in the wrong thread. I apologise for neither. With Warner/AT&T/Time now shoving all their films onto HBO Max and all things Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar going onto Disney+, what lies ahead for the future of physical cinemas. Film companies by-...

Re: FrightFest October 2020

All the best trying to find any physical cinemas left open for future events.

How very, criminally sad this all is.

Re: FrightFest October 2020

I’d be pessimistic.

When the state start issuing graphs with criminally bad extrapolation curves on it, the only reason is fear.

Works better than any horror film

Re: HOW TO WATCH

It’s a shame there’s no direct FireTV or console support, there are definitely a couple of films I would have happily bought tickets for. Sadly our holidays reset with furlough, and it’s too early to book time off, so the one I was most interested in (There’s No Such Thing As Vampires) I would just...

Re: FrightFest August

Unsurprising but still a shame.

Maybe a work around it to simply say you're holding a protest, clearly on one gives a crap about guidelines and public health in that instance.

Re: FrightFest August

Reading/Leeds Festival cancelled.

Would FrightFest be the same with half or even a third or quarter of the people in the same auditorium because of social distancing?

Re: FrightFest August

Notting Hill Carnival cancelled...

Though being perfectly honest, if the pubs aren't open by August (which I expect they won't be) then there is even less need to come to London.

Thank heavens I went to Glasgow for my Frightfest fix.

Re: FrightFest August

Makes a change of speculating what films will be on to whether the festival itself will occur. August seems so far away but looking at events at the start of August; Brighton Pride is still going ahead, but the Great British Beer Festival, which was due to be held at Olympia, is cancelled. At least ...

Top 3:

1 = Ghost Waits/VFW
