Only in Theaters, a love letter to cinema that tells the story of the Laemmle family and the American Dream, is now available on DVD. When I first spoke to Raphael Sbarge last fall, there were some technical issues that prevented the interview from being recorded. He was gracious enough to redo the interview earlier this year, which you can read right here. When we first spoke, he mentioned Kino Lorber being interested in releasing…"Only In Theaters Arrives on DVD"
Only In Theaters isn’t just a love letter to cinema but a story about the Laemmle family and living the American Dream. Over the course of two and a half years, filmmaker Raphael Sbarge traces the family’s history all the way back to the 1930s. He was given complete access and full creative control in telling their story. While the final run time is about an hour and a half, the initial cut ran around…"Only In Theaters: The Laemmle Family and the American Dream"
In addition to joining the Paramount Presents line, Almost Famous arrives on 4K Ultra HD for the first time with new bonus content. I first reviewed the film last year when Cameron Crowe’s instant classic celebrated the 20th anniversary of its theatrical release in 2000.

A number of Crowe films have milestone anniversaries in 2021: Jerry Maguire celebrates its 25th anniversary. Vanilla Sky marks its 20th anniversary and the last time Paul…"Elizabethtown Arrives On Blu-ray For The First Time"
Almost Famous, an instant classic from writer-director Cameron Crowe, celebrates its 20th anniversary of its theatrical release in 2000. Cameron Crowe draws on his real-life experiences writing for Rolling Stone to tell this semi-autobiographical story. The things that William Miller (Patrick Fugit) experiences are things that Crowe did in real life. They say to write what you know, right? In any event, William doesn’t exactly have the best home life. His mom (Frances McDormand), recently…"Almost Famous Celebrates 20th Anniversary"
Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire recently got an upgrade to 4K Ultra HD this past June as a part of the Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection. “Show Me The Money!” “Help me help you.” “You complete me.” “You had me at hello.” “The human head weighs eight pounds?” “Kwan.” These are just a few of the phrases that Crowe helped bring into the lexicon. It’s not unfair to say that Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) is…"Jerry Maguire: Show Me The Money!"
