Film reels, dolly wheels, lenses, lights and DVDs; the circle is a crucial shape to the process of cinema. In early cameras and projectors the circular gears and knobs and loops inside helped keep the film steady and the picture clear. Needless to say, we at O Cinema are very fond of the circle, just as we are fond of our members, whose donations help keep our films coming steady and our big picture clear.
Join our Members Circle today, and we’ll see you around.
Do you list “movies” as a hobby? Do you have the showtimes on speed-dial? Do you own more DVDs than books? Do you have an exact and detailed answer to the question “What’s your favorite movie?” THEN you are a big fan of the movies, and O Cinema is a big fan of you! This membership pays for itself if you see about one movie a month.
For you, film is not a pastime – it’s a lifestyle. Not only can you name all the actors in that movie, but also the director, writer, cinematographer, and possibly even the best boy key grip. To you a film festival is vacation, popcorn is lunch and marketing materials are wall art. You belong at O Cinema, and we belong to you. This membership pays for itself if you see about 2 movie a month.
Passion doesn’t begin to describe it; you can smell the dark in the theater, you can taste the light on the screen, and you can feel the magic in the air. While a lifetime of stories unfolds in front of your eyes, you don’t question whether Cinema is an art; you argue that it may be the ultimate artform. This membership pays for itself!
Persistence of Vision is the phenomenon in filmmaking that allows for the illusion of motion to occur, as still images seamlessly become moving pictures. O Cinema is able to do what it does because of the persistence of vision of our founding members and most ardent supporters the members of this aptly named Society. This membership pays for itself!
