I think this is fantastic news! Anyone who wonders how much demand there will be needs to look just blocks away to the summertime Cinespia screenings at Hollywood Forever, which pack viewers in and have people coming from all over southern California to attend. I am looking forward to experiencing what the Academy has in store.

It sounds like a cool idea! I hope it works out! Here’s wishing they’d do a similar thing here in the Bay State, for indoor and outdoor films that’re only for classic films.
