“They have been writing their own epitaph for a long time, but they assumed the business would take you along. It’s been crazy throughout my career to see how the film experience is lessened for the viewer like every five years.”

The filmmaker recently purchased Los Angeles’ Vista Theatre, which he plans on reopening by Christmas.
“We’ll show new movies that come out where they give us a film print,” he added. “The Vista is like a crown jewel kind of thing. We’ll show older films, but it will be like you can hold a four-night engagement.”
