"Us on the screen" was AND STILL IS a big part of it. You dig?

Reposted from @strongblacklead

Truth is, for many Black folk, the Blaxploitation era was the first time they saw people who looked like them on screen. "We wasn't sitting in the movies going; this is a damn shame how they making us look. We was just so happy to be up there." - Eddie Murphy

Finding the 1970s L.A. of Rudy Ray Moore’s 'Dolemite'

We were mentioned in Los Angeles Magazine! We are now iconic. LOL

The makers of Netflix’s ’Dolemite Is My Name’ turned L.A. locations into everything from a Tallahassee nightclub to a defunct Hollywood record store

Why is movie theater popcorn so outrageously expensive?

"I'm not getting rich off what you pay for popcorn and soda," says Paul Turner, who runs Darkside Cinema in Corvallis, Oregon. "I drive a 26-year old van."
Profits from popcorn, he says, are used to pay off the high overhead costs of running a theater: staff, rent, AC, utilities, and the constant upgrades (Surround Sound, IMAX, 3D) that consumers demand.

Yes, $7 popcorn is a ripoff. But it’s also the lifeblood of most movie theaters’ business model.

This is an amazing article regarding the challenges facing the fight against pirated films. For years, China was denounced as not supporting the fight against film piracy, but this article explains the obstacles in chasing the bad guys. As a film exhibitor who deals with ever increasing difficulty in compliance with stricter security requirements, I can feel the frustration in the chase.

Read the amazing true story of 'Operation 2.15' and the three-year fight to smash the greatest film piracy ring ever. At the centre of it all was a rogue server code-named 'Ghost No. 1' that put fear into the hearts of every Hollywood studio and Chinese film distributor.
