The Rep Header

Here’s a unique and bold take on the theatrical distribution model. Director Morgan White is offering up copies of his documentary The Rep to any theater willing to play it, free of charge. They keep 100% of the profits.

Here’s some great news about two films centering on repertory theaters. Last year, we highlighted Morgan White‘s documentary called The Rep which uses the story of three friends who started a theater in Toronto to contextualize the state of the rep theaters today.

Then last week, you might remember, one of the theaters featured in The Rep, the New Beverly in Los Angeles, had another movie possibly being made about it. It’s called Out of Print and the director, Julia Marchese, only had a few more days to reach her Kickstarter goal making the project a reality. That has now happened. Two documentaries about cinemas coming soon to a cinema near you. How meta and cool. Read more below. Read More »
