Detour Virtual Screen

May 21, 2020 in News, primo piano by cinedetour

Are you weary of yet another uninspiring movie streaming experience?
Are you looking for something to counteract the excesses of TV series binge watching??
Do you miss your much-loved arthouse cinema and want to support it in these hard times?
From now on you can try … Detour Virtual Screen! 

in collaboration with Wanted Cinema

While we wait for further information as to how we can get our film projector back into use in line with health and safety requirements, we are overjoyed to be able at least to inaugurate our virtual screenings! We’d like to invite you to join us.

Detour resumes its programming with the first two titles, proposed in “virtual room” mode!

Detour Virtual Screen is an experiment to try and keep in touch with you, a gentle but somewhat revolutionary act of love for cinema-in-the-cinema, in support of the impressive efforts and sacrifices that arthouse cinemas are facing, making our fabulous community aware of the difficulties of the current situation.

Virtual cinema does not simply mean pay-per-view movie streaming, but it is a gesture of solidarity that guarantees film buffs and fans a safe re-visiting of their favorite arthouse cinema, recognising the cinema’s role as an irreplaceable social and cultural landmark, and an opportunity for independent distributors with their precious catalogues of quality films, to jump back in.

With a little imagination you will enjoy once again attending our screening room, the call and the wait for a real movie event.

There’s more: through real live connections, you can interact directly with guests and speakers present in the room and talk with other spectators, during the première events.

While out famous red seats and comfy sofa will have to wait for your return, at least Detour’s heart will be able to carry on beating at at full speed, thanks to all of you. 

And now, ladies and gentlemen, let’s dim the lights…
