The Last Reel - a new documentary release

Posted by Christopher Lange (Creator)

The movie theater, a communal experience of the darkened room and light on the screen and the act of watching cinema, have had a profound influence on Goblin. Today we are sharing The Last Reel (2018), a documentary made by Goblin’s director Chris Lange. A recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board’s media grant, the film documents the Plaza Maplewood Theater’s final days prior to handing its keys over to a megachurch. It’s at times a sad film, it’s Minnesotan, it’s an ode, it’s got some 35mm, an old projection booth, some animation, some religion, some Sam Raimi and Evil Dead — it’s about community. It feels like it could be any town with a small movie theater going through change.  

Before editing, Chris sat on the footage for a few years (it was filmed in 2013), but the distance provided some perspective in regards to our current place of digital cinema, streaming, movie-going, and the plethora of screens available.

Today is the first day that the film is available publicly. Here is the link to the film:

We hope you enjoy!
