Beyond the multiplex : cinema, new technologies, and the home / Barbara Klinger
Berkeley: University of California Press, 2006.
Call No: 386.5 KLI Author: Klinger, Barbara Source: US Place: Berkeley Publisher: University of California Press PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: xii, 310 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm Subject: CABLE TV; DVD, FILMS ON; HOME EXHIBITION; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; PRIVATE CINEMAS; TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS Summary: "Since the mid-1980s, more audiences have been watching Hollywood movies at home than at movie theatersm yet little is known about just how viewers experience film outside of the multiplex. This is the first full-length study of how contemporary entertainment technologies and media - from cable television and VHS to DVD and the Internet - shape our encounters with the movies and affect the aesthetic, cultural, and ideological definitions of cinema. Barbara Klinger explores topics such as home theater, film collecting, classic Hollywood movie reruns, repeat viewings, and Internet film parodies, providing a multifaceted view of the presentation and reception of films in U.S. households. Balancing industry history with theoretical and cultural analysis, she finds that today's cinema's powerful social presence cannot be fully grasped without considering its prolific recycling in post-theatrical venues - especially the home."--BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP.; Includes bibliographical references (p. 281-287) and index ISBN: 9780520245860 Contents: The new media aristocrats: home theater and the film experience -- The contemporary cinephile: film collecting after the VCR -- Remembrance of films past: cable television and classic Hollywood cinema -- Once is not enough: the functions and pleasures of repeat viewings -- To infinity and beyond: the Web short, parody, and remediation -- Conclusion: of fortresses and film cultures More info

While the networks continued to chase the lowest common denominator, a wave of new shows on cable channels dramatically stretched television's narrative inventiveness, emotional resonance, and artistic ambition. Combining deep reportage with cultural analysis and historical context, Brett Martin recounts the rise and inner workings of a genre that represents not only a new golden age for TV, but also a cultural watershed." - taken from back cover.
