UPDATE (7/24): SLEEPWALK WITH ME has been tentatively booked at the Claremont, NoHo 7 and Playhouse 7 for 9/14.
Without consulting with us or offering us a chance to bid, the distributor of the film chose to assign the exhibition rights to the film to the Nuart Theatre in West L.A. This decision meant that the distributor had to accept the “clearance” policies claimed by the Nuart and its operator, Landmark Theatres, which include the requirement that the theatre have exclusive Los Angeles County rights to show the film. Since the film will be playing at the Nuart for two weeks beginning on 8/31, the earliest we could exhibit the film in any of our theaters is 9/14. No determination as yet as to whether or not the film will be doing enough business to warrant continued exhibition after the exclusive period at the Nuart.
FAREWELL, MY QUEEN marks the return of acclaimed director Benoit Jacquot (A Single Girl, Seventh Heaven, Sade, Deep in the Woods) and brilliantly captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution. Based on the best-selling novel by Chantal Thomas.
