where are the films?
Putting all your proverbial film eggs into one basket is no longer an option in the brave new world of multimedia, multichannel, multiplatform options that audiences (or is it consumers?) have to choose from.
Here at the Dukes, despite being older than most technologies bar film, we like to keep up with the times and offer our customers a little bit of everything.
Thursday and Friday last week we hosted two concerts as part of The Great Escape music festival and on Saturday we hosted the UK's biggest Eurovision Party.
Next week we have Phill Jupitus and Phil Wilding doing their 'Perfect Ten' podcast on Saturday, Kristin Hersh on Wednesday, and (phew!) Richard Herring and Andrew Collins do their own podcast live on stage on Thursday...
Meanwhile, we'll be screening five different main features, including an American indie, a Kubrick re-issue, a Scandinavian comedy, an American classic and a kids' film. Who needs video-on-demand, pay-per-view, cable or satelitte? It's all here at the Dukes.
