Storyline

The New Bev is a theater where a double feature is still $8 - cash only. A theater where David Lynch pops by for a secret Q&A and where Edgar Wright introduces our monthly midnight screening of Scott Pilgrim whenever he is in town. A theater where directors program a week of their favorite films and come down to talk about how they inspired them. A theater where Fassbinder, Romero, Scorsese and Hitchcock films all show in the same week. Where you could catch a double feature of Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons - then stick around for the midnight screening of Cool As Ice. A place where the owner and employees genuinely care about cinema and are excited to talk to you about what the ending of Primer really means, or to recommend a film you've maybe never heard of. Since 1978 we've been home to dedicated film geeks, casual moviegoers and some of the greatest directors and actors in the world - everyone is treated equally here. We're one of the last places where that happens. ... Written by Julia Marchese

Interesting history of the New Bev
15 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I wrote this because there was only 1 review here and frankly I thought it was an unfair and a bad review.

To start out with this movie gives the history of the New Bev. It tells how it got started, what happened when the owner died, and gives it some historical context and importance.

This is not just a film about 35mm films. It is a story of the theater itself. It's importance, it's place and it's purpose. It goes on to tell the story as to why this theater is important, and why people love it. It is no coincidence that QT bought the movie theater. He grew up watching movies there. It remains a favorite as there are tons of Q n A done there, and lots of celebs choose to go there to view older movies that they like and mingle with the non A list crowd.

There is some discussion of 35mm film medium in the doc. But let me put that into perspective for you since the last review seems to have missed the point. No one is claiming that people shouldn't use digital media. What is being said, is that there is a whole lot of 35mm film out there that people are choosing not to preserve due to the cost. They would rather let it be destroyed than keep that art. Those films are art, and that art should be preserved as once it is gone, it is gone forever. That the world misses something when the original works on 35mm are lost. That movies who will never make it to digital production will be lost. Furthermore, that films originally shot in 35mm should be shown to audiences in the 35mm, in the same way in which an oil painting shouldn't be redone in an acrylic for museums. The artists original work should be displayed as intended in the artists medium. That the dust and scratches of the old films and projector is part of the experience of that piece and part of the history of the piece.

This is actually a fairly well done doc, which is no surprise considering who is involved aka Kevin Smith. Smith is literally one of the coolest guys in Hollywood. Say what you will about his movies, he is a huge movie buff who appreciates the fact that other people love movies too. He tries to bridge that gap, and show that The New Beverly is a very special place where people can simply be movie buffs, and is a place where fans can connect to the Hollywood crowd who too are simply fans of the movies that inspired them. Creating a unique connect with the art in general. I actually really enjoyed the doc. It's educational, uniquely pop cultural, and informative. It helps raise awareness of preserving old films, and inspires people to explore their love of movies. Why I am not a huge fan of most of kevin Smith's actual movies, I do think the different projects he does where he is just being himself and promoting the love of film are his greatest contributions. Shows like this and An Evening with Kevin Smith are excellent docs and well worth the watch.
