Exhibiting Film with The Playhouse's Jacob Tutt

Oct 23, 12:00 PM

In 2018 a legendary east end Hamilton theatre was revived, thanks to the Tutt family. Jacob Tutt tells me what it was like literally growing up in a movie theatre, how films are selected to screen, how technology has changed, and some of the highlights in their 1st year.

In 2018 a legendary east end Hamilton theatre was revived, thanks to the Tutt family.  The Playhouse, a true independent art house cinema, has been embraced by film fans, with a growing membership base of over 4000.  I am definitely in awe of this beautiful 105 year old theatre right in my neighbourhood.  I chat with Jacob, the son of John & Wendy Tutt, who now operates The Playhouse.  He tells me what it was like literally growing up in a movie theatre, how films are selected to screen, how technology has changed, and some of the highlights in their 1st year. 
 
Thanks to Jacob for taking the time to teach me about how the exhibition side of the film world works.  If you haven’t been to the Playhouse Cinema yet, you’re missing out.  Go to playhousecinema.ca to see their current features, and to become a member, which offers you great discounts for a very low joining fee.
