Later today in Los Angeles (i.e., at 4 pm) Newmarket is having the first “official” press screening of Peter Weir‘s highly-touted The Way Back. And yet it’s showing at “absolutely the worst screen in town, the tiny Fairbanks room at Raleigh Studios, which is infamous for lousy picture and sound,” a friend remarks. “This for an epic picture of vast scope and luscious sound.” Newmarket is obviously trying to keep costs down, but this sounds like a case of penny-wise, pound-foolish.
