Cinemas plan to reopen in selected locations throughout July with social distancing measures. Most commerical venues open on the 4th whilst the Curzon aims for the 11th.
Films reviewed in CAPITAL REVIEWER this month: “Street cast” Roxanne Scrimshaw performing a version of herself in the BFI's LYNN & LUCY; David Thewlis as an unhinged health inspector in GUEST OF HONOUR directed by the idiosyncratic Canadian auteur, Atom Egoyan; Dominik Moll’s gripping French thriller ONLY THE ANIMALS based on the novel Seules Les Bêtes by Colin Niel; Icelandic rural revenge drama THE COUNTY and the refreshingly altruistic CITIZENS OF THE WORLD directed and by and featuring Gianni Di Gregorio.
Meanwhile, theatres are effectively closed because of COVID 19 safety issues around "live performances" (plays, music & dance). It is for these cultural venues that CAPITAL REVIEWER reserves sympathy and wishes all those in the performing arts the very best. However, outdoor theatres, opera, dance and music resume from 11 July. Let's hope the sun shines on these events.
Keep checking this space as the arts adapts and evolves for audiences and viewers in the current climate.
