Halifax film screening picks — Dec 21-27

21 Dec
December 21, 2015

Seven years ago today, I went to a screening of It’s a Wonderful Life that was mistakenly framed by the projectionist for a wider aspect ratio than the film’s native Academy standard 4:3—resulting in lots of scenes where Jimmy Stewart’s forehead was cut off at the eyebrows. Yes, it’s a film that can be constantly reconsidered from various perspectives but that wasn’t a perspective I was looking for. Hoping for better things from today’s digital projection systems at the local Cineplex screenings this week. Merry Christmas!
