ABOUT THE CINEMA

Showing films on film

The world has gone digital. It is now rare to see a film projected on actual film. This change has happened largely unnoticed. But you might have detected in yourself a vague sense of something missing from your recent experiences at the cinema. We have. We think that in the perfect digital world, something has been lost. Some imperfection, some dirt, some proof that the image exists here in the world with us and is subject to physical laws, as we are. The flicker in the dark. We believe in bringing that lost something to audiences through the tactile magic of film. We show classic, independent, experimental, short, and foreign films in the intimate space of the Gaslight Theater in St. Louis.
