The decision to screen Ron Howard‘s The DaVinci Code at the Cannes Film Festival’s Debussy theatre at 8:30 pm on Tuesday, 5.16 — the night before the festival’s de facto launch on Wednesday morning — is, one presumes, in line with Columbia’s decision to simultaneously screen it to the world’s film critics at more or less the same time. This means…what? That Opie’s Dae will screen for New York critics in the mid-afternoon of Tuesday the 16th, and for L.A. critics sometime in the late morning of the same day?
