Fewer Theatrical Venues for Independents in LA
On Jan. 9th, 2011 the LA Times reported that non-studio films are finding fewer screens (and smaller audiences) in LA. "Though the specialized distribution business has deep historical ties to New York and that city has always been a more natural home for foreign-language, documentary and fringe American independent film than the more Hollywood-oriented L.A. marketplace, the gap between what can be seen in the cities seems to be widening. More and more art-house films are opening in New York first and then coming to Los Angeles many weeks or months later — or not at all."
