A slight change to the April and May schedule from the good folk of Moving Image in Wivenhoe – no worries, there’s still a wonderful poster in which to display. At the centre of the changes is the amendment of the Oscar winning The Artist appearing in Wivenhoe.
Some might say that there are already sufficient ‘artists’ of sorts around the area come chucking out time.
Behind all of this hyperlocal shuffling of the film reels (of sorts) is the fickle world of the film distributors. There is a definite pecking order when it comes to what flicks can be shown. A hyperlocal independent community cinema for a North Essex estuary town falls just below The Odeon at Leicester Square.
As Michael from Moving Image rather helpfully explains:
“We’ve had to amend the Moving Image programme as the distributors have decided to postpone the release of The Artist to cinemas such as ours. We’ve managed to confirm Zelig [ACE] and move Young Adult and Shame forwards. The new date for The Artist is 9th June, followed by The Descendants, The Woman in the Fifth and A Dangerous Method.”
Golden days of Moving Image we tell you. Golden days.
