Spotlight Cinema Networks partners with D&E for alternative content

Aug 1, 2013

D&E Entertainment and Spotlight Cinema Networks are partnering to bring alternative content, documentaries and independent films to Spotlight’s network of art-house and specialty cinemas across the U.S.

“With our newly formed partnership with D&E Entertainment, Spotlight is able to continue its efforts to maximize revenues while providing quality content for its exhibitor partners,” said Ronnie Ycong, Spotlight’s VP of exhibitor relations.

“We feel this is a perfect alignment for D&E, Spotlight and its cinema partners. D&E Entertainment will help theatres expand their content offerings and build additional revenue by bringing new audiences to their theatres,” stated Evan Saxon and Doug Kluthe, co-founders of D&E.

The first two projects from the partnership will be the feature film CBGB and a multimedia performance by musician Thomas Dolby and his new documentary The Invisible Lighthouse.

CBGB stars Alan Rickman, Donal Logue, Rupert Grint and Bradley Whitford and looks at New York’s punk-rock scene through the lens of the groundbreaking Lower East Side club started by eccentric Hilly Kristal in 1973, which showcased cutting-edge bands until its closing in 2006. Talking Heads, Patti Smith, Television, The Ramones, Blondie, The Dead Boys, Green Day, The Police, Bruce Springsteen, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, The B-52s, The Runaways and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are just some of the multitude of bands that played at the club over the years.

Thomas Dolby will give moviegoers a unique experience as he narrates and performs the score during the screening of his film The Invisible Lighthouse. After the screening, he will perform his hits and engage fans in a Q&A.
