Film fun

If you're on the mailing list of The Cornerhouse you can get a copy of their monthly listings booklet, which has been generally pretty good. So of course it couldn't last, could it?

"Our new calendar below hs been created to accommodate flexibility in our film scheduling so we can respond to your demands and give you more opportunity to see popular films. This means for new releases it isn't possible to list times here."

That's right: in order to provide a better customer experience you have to guess when the films start.

I wonder if Orwell would laugh or cry at our clever modern world.

Hmm, yes, I do wonder if he'd consider it was worth copping a Falangist's bullet for.

Madame DeF: or buy the DVD...

Savannah: this is true. It turns out that if you want the time you have to check the web, ring the cinema or pop in and pick up a photocopied listing for the week. Which makes you wonder what the brochure's for...

Jimmy: this is why I'm vexed to find that Citizen Kane's on during working hours.

Scarlet: welcome back dearie!

Gadjo: makes you think...
