Wouldn't it be nice to watch a good film or two in one of these theaters?
Aside from photography and writing, film is one of the few things that I’m very interested in. That said, you’d probably understand now why French photographer *Franck Bohbot* ‘s “Cinema” has easily caught my attention. Bohbot, who focuses on urban landscapes and public spaces, has tracked down some of the most beautiful cinemas in California and taken photos of their interiors for this series. As one would see in the photos, the theaters themselves are a sight to behold, probably even more so than some of the movies being screened there! I don’t know much about architecture to make an actual criticism, but I can definitely say that these places are some of the most breathtaking ones I’ve seen – I wish I could visit them myself! Surely it would be a wonderful and memorable experience to watch a movie or a performance in any of these cinemas.
It makes me wonder, then – if you could watch any movie in one of these, what would it be?

As film photographers, I'm sure you, too, have been asked why you still choose to shoot in this medium at least once - whether by a genuinely curious friend or family member, or a disbelieving acquaintance.
Any analogue enthusiast worth his salt will know what features an analogue photo needs to have to stand out in a sea of digital shots. And they might as well just stop looking for pixels in photographer Nastya Kaletkina’s work.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
