WHEN GOING TO THE MOVIES MADE YOU FEEL LIKE ROYALTY...
With only precious few single-screen heritage movie theatres remaining (and those only just barely hanging on with a stay of execution from the wrecking ball's relentless path), the documentary short "Broken Palace" takes the viewer on a nostalgic and bittersweet journey into this once-grand moviegoing experience. By creating a living and breathing sensory journey through music, spoken word, and the haunting images of the formerly glorious cinematic palaces themselves, "Broken Palace" both celebrates and laments the passing of an era when movies and their audiences were once treated like kings and queens...
