Dear Laemmle Fans,
It’s been five weeks now of Laemmle Virtual Cinema. The pandemic timeline continues to be extended, so for better or worse, we hope you’ll get settled in with us to ride out this long, bumpy flight together.
Let’s start today’s new releases with Bull, a terrific example of regional American storytelling by Annie Silverstein that was originally scheduled to open on March 20. The documentary Pahokee tells another regional story, painting a detailed portrait of small town American life before the crisis. The Sound of the Wind, by debut fimmaker Jared Douglas, is an intimate and slow-burning psychological thriller, that challenges traditional media depictions of mental illness. And finally, we are pleased to bring back The Times of Bill Cunningham, featuring the iconic street photographer’s tales from his 50+ years as an observer of New York fashion, culture, and society.
This is also your last chance to watch new releases Once Were Brothers and The Whistlers, so don’t delay any further if you haven’t seen them. I’d also like to remind you of two popular titles from last week, The Booksellers and Beyond the Visible, both of which seem to have resonated with our audience.
Stay safe. Wash those hands. And pray for baseball.
All the best,
