Happy July 4th from all of us here at Cinema Treasures. Enjoy the fireworks, sunny weather and maybe catch a flick too.
Happy 4th to you guys also.
And many thanks for creating and maintaining this wonderful website.
So far, “Transformers” opened this week, and lo and behold, someone illegally taped the film at a local Bronx theater, the American, and got busted by NYPD under the MPAA’s new anti-piracy law, in which bootleggers get arrested by the police after a moviegoer notifies the management of people taking video of the film on their digital camera or cell phone. It’s an important thing not to record a piece of history at a Cinema Treasure; that way, movie theaters of the past will not be spoiled of their splendor by others who disobey it, and that is true of people talking on cellphones during the movie as well as those pointing lasers at the screen.
