Actor/Director Raphael Sbarge has gifted us with the documentary, ONLY IN THEATERS. He chatted with our Gadi Elkon about the film, the Laemmle’s, and so much more!
There has been a Laemmle in the movie business since there’s been a movie business. Their beloved Arthouse Cinema chain with an astonishing Hollywood legacy has, for four generations, been dedicated to elevating the art of filmmaking and the filmmakers who make them. Responsible for bringing foreign film to Los Angeles and popularizing countless foreign independent films and their filmmakers, the Laemmle Theatres’ impact on Hollywood and world cinema cannot be overstated. In a world of growing conglomeration, the Laemmle circuit of theatres has become even more of an anomaly: a family-owned and operated art house theatre chain. Filmed over 2 1/2 years, Only in Theaters chronicles a family business, and their determination to survive. But in a changing world this is also a story about the future of Cinema.
Veteran actor and director Raphael Sbarge talked with Gadi about the legacy of the Laemmle family, the importance of the theaters, and so much more!
