    I'd like to see a couple of screens in the mega movie theatres devoted to classic films. (Yes, I know I can see them on the small screen.) I also don't like the concept that once a movie has been out six months, it's very hard to see it in a regular cinema. 99.9% of the world's best movies did not come out in the last six months.
