After the recent transfer of Hull Screen to Reel Cinemas, it looks like that purely commercial considerations will be the defining criteria for the programming of the cinema. Therefore all the gems that we used to enjoy are going to disappear from our city to be replaced basically by "arthouse blockbusters", if that definition were not an oxymoron. In other words, sub-titled blockbusters. yes, they may be very well made, excellent acting and cinematography. However, still blockbusters made to entertain. It is clear to me that the new Hull Screen fails the Tarkovsky test.
This also raises the question of what an arthouse film is?
