On her book The New Yorker Theater and Other Scenes from a Life at the Movies

Cover Interview of November 27, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline:

“Bertolucci called us a kind of wild cinema university.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“The New Yorker Theater came at a ripe moment—when audiences came to view film as an art form and not just popular entertainment.”

On the second:

“We pursued works of human resonance that inform and perpetuate the art of cinema, touchstones to re-see over and over and learn from.”
