american cinema

Icaria - Lowes
in an american style movie theatre, even the reaction of the audiences are more "american style". normally there is a good cultural habit that as audiences we'll stay seated as long as the house light is off (which is usually until the end of rolling credits). perhaps it has to do with the theatre policy and how the regard this subject of 'film'.

in verde, the more "art house" cinema, light is out until the very last bit of rolling credits, in the case of renoir, lights were dim during the credits. here at Lowes light weres up as soon as the last scene finish, and people stood up and leave right away... we see how a piece of american culture is fitted in this meditarrian harbor...
