Less Hollywood, more quality films
Cineplex must have a very low opinion of the cultural awareness of Victorians, particularly those of us in the western communities. Better films are not opened on larger screens out our way. “The Kings Speech” opened only at the Odeon downtown, until long lines and patrons turned away led to its opening at Tillicum’s SilverCity. “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” did not open on a big screen. “The Quartet” opened only at the Odeon. Golden Globes and Oscar nominations not withstanding, these are I think the best recent English language films, and certainly the best for Victoria’s mature audiences.
