If you haven’t tried it since the early days of the pandemic, Laemmle Virtual Cinema is still going strong, still important, and it’s improved! You can now enjoy Laemmle films at home using Chromecast, Roku, Apple AirPlay and Apple TV app, or just a plain old HDMI cable from laptop to TV. And you can use gift and Premiere Cards to pay. And the movies! We have features and documentaries from around the world that you can’t see anywhere else and what’s nice is the the engagements are not limited to a week or two, as theatrical exhibition necessitates, but many weeks, so you’ll have time to fully indulge your cinephilia. Plus we have cool collections like Greg Laemmle’s List of personal picks and the 2021 IDA Documentary Award Nominees.
This Friday we’re opening six new films on Laemmle Virtual Cinema. Four dramas: HIVE from Kosovo/Albania (winner of Grand Jury, Best Director and Audience awards at Sundance, the first time that’s ever happened); BACK OF THE MOON from South Africa; BETRAYED from Norway; and TOKYO SHAKING from France; an animated feature from France, JOSEP (winner of the César for Best Animated Feature); and
the French/Tunisian documentary SHE HAD A DREAM.
