Tarantino takes stock se­ri­ously

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

Let us stop to praise Quentin Tarantino for a mo­ment. The di­rec­tor has al­ways shown an ad­mirable de­vo­tion to ac­tual film – the stuff that comes in cans – and we should, there­fore, not be sur­prised to hear that the New Bev­erly Cin­ema in LA, which he pur­chased in 2007, will now only screen phys­i­cal prints.

“The big thing about what’s go­ing to change now that I’m tak­ing the the­atre over is, from here on in, the New Bev­erly is only show­ing film. That’s it. No dig­i­tal. If some­thing’s play­ing at the New Bev­erly it’s on film.”

In other Tarantino news, we hear that, to the sur­prise of many, his Hate­ful Eight will go be­fore au­di­ences late next year.

Stay­ing true to his pas­sion, the film will have the widest 70mm film re­lease in more than 20 years. Such things do still hap­pen it seems. His old pals at the We­in­stein Company will dis­trib­ute.
