"Must See" Cinema!
Part of the appeal of seeing these older movies on the big screen is simply the collective enjoyment of a film. Unlike a night spent seeing the latest blockbuster at the multiplex, the “Must See” series is mostly frequented by serious moviegoers, and it is perhaps the one chance in a week where one can go to the movies without needing to shush someone or be distracted by other patrons who concentrate more on their text messages than the movie. Nostalgia is another reason for enjoying the series: there is just something extremely charming about seeing an older movie on the big screen. Finally, the series is a reminder of how much more enjoyable it is to see a movie in the theatre. Especially in the case of films like The Red Shoes, the way the colors leap off the screen creates an experience that simply cannot by replicated in an at-home viewing. If anything, this is the series’ greatest success.
