An Evening with Arch Campbell and Friends: The State of the Movies

Jane Horowitz of The Washington Post, Travis Hopson of WETA Around Town, and Jason Fraley of WTOP Radio will join celebrated television movie critic Arch Campbell in a panel discussion about the world of movies, both on and off the screen. With Netflix and Amazon expanding into producing or buying first-run features, the lines between television and feature films are becoming more blurred. How does this situation affect commercial film distribution? The once-staid Academy Awards® were embroiled in controversy this year over minority representation. There seem to be more and more superhero-oriented, special-effects blockbusters geared to young men. Given the success of art houses like Landmark Theaters E Street Cinema, why aren't more quality films being exhibited? The media experts will discuss these issues and many more.
