Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Two of my favorite things are IMAX 70mm film projection and science-fiction movies so last Thursday was something of a red letter day when an email landed in my inbox making me aware of a science-fiction film festival at the London Science Museum this March (2023). The sci-fi film festival is offered to celebrate the museum’s exhibition, Science Fiction: Voyage to the Edge of Imagination , and a very good thing it is too. The Science Museum IMAX is the only venue in the country that features both digital dual-laser and 70mm film IMAX projectors, (the BFI IMAX has single laser and 70mm). It has taken its time getting back up and running showing commercial movies as part of its roster and I’m glad it’s now doing so. The festival offers a range of classic sci-fi films alongside special guest speakers and Q&As with key people from the films- but if you don’t already know about it, you’ll need to hurry up and grab some … [Read more...] about Science-Fiction Film Festival Lands At London Science Museum In IMAX 70mm Format
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Recently, I was invited to the reopening of the IMAX theatre in the Science Museum in London , newly dubbed The Ronson Theatre. This location is now special as it’s one of only a few IMAX cinemas in the world to be able to show both IMAX Laser Digital projections – in full height 1.43 aspect ratio, while also having the option to show IMAX 70mm film prints , making it, in a technical sense at least, one of the best cinemas in the world for picture quality. Sadly, with all the restrictions this great feature has been curtailed by the increase in restrictions due to you know what, focusing the cinemas to shut its door again. Let’s hope that once the vaccine is more widely deployed, cinemas around the world will have a chance to reopen and the industry to recover. For all its technical wizardry, as its part of the Science Museum its primary remit it to show science-based and educational films so it was fitting that for … [Read more...] about Behind The Curtain At The London Science Museum IMAX
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin As healthcare systems face increasing societal scrutiny and criticism, restoring trust is critical to improving public health. According to a study , if mistrust goes unchecked, it can erode physician-patient relationships and effectuate poorer patient outcomes and prevalent burnout among doctors. Healthcare leaders have taken steps to address this issue. For example, many organizations now utilize customer experience metrics to measure the quality and trustworthiness of their services. But has it made a difference? The 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer concluded that public trust in healthcare systems is, in fact, declining. This is problematic for a variety of reasons. First, patients may be less likely to seek medical help if they distrust the system. Second, physicians may be discouraged from providing care due to negative public opinion. Disparities in how healthcare systems treated different races, genders, and … [Read more...] about Leaders Are Restoring Trust In Healthcare—But How?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Just this week the Senate Judiciary Committee posted an ominous message to Ticketmaster regarding their upcoming sale of tickets for Beyoncé. They took to Twitter to say “ We’re watching @Ticketmaster. ” Since when does the legislative branch of government communicate in the same cadence as Tony Soprano? It is as if the Senators don’t believe the free market works. Perhaps that makes sense in today’s Washington D.C. where George Santos inexplicably remains a sitting member of Congress and a certain ex-President is campaigning on a platform that his 2020 election “victory” was stolen. In the land of reality, tickets trade like any items of value. The prices move up and down based upon supply and demand. Those in the know understand that Bruce Springsteen is almost universally regarded as a stellar artist and performer. Along with that reputation is the lesser known truth that demand for his tickets is always high in New … [Read more...] about Happy Valentine’s Day Senator Klobuchar: Bruce Springsteen’s Ticket Prices For His February 14th Show Are Crashing
