BIG PICTURES from The New Yorker

The New Yorker has an excellent story on the past, present, and future of moviegoing. Read it here: BIG PICTURES

On screen size:
If you watch the movie on a small screen, you’re not living within this great breathing, palpable place. The small screen takes the emotion out of the landscape.

On viewing with a crowd:
In a marvellous paradox, the people around us both relieve us of isolation and drive us deeper into our own responses.

(The article ends by praising the presentation at the ArcLight.)
