why splendor?

The name of this blog is inspired by the 1989 Etore Scola film Splendor, a marvellous little film starring Marcello Mastroianni and Massimo Troisi. It tells the story of the Cinema Splendor, (you can see a picture of it in the heading of the blog) the local at a small town in Italy. It's the story of exhibition in the 20th century, and manages to be funny, moving and really relevant if you've ever worked in a cinema.

Sadly it's not available on DVD in the UK and I can't get hold of any prints to show it at the Dukes.
