The LOST & OUT OF PRINT film series is temporarily closed until further notice. People think we are showing their copy written movies so, the groups will stop here temporarily and come back once the issue is resolved.
Please note that our club is devoted to small gauge film enthusiasts in the Bay Area that wish to meet and discuss film prints in our collection. Our prints are offered for sale or swap at the end of meetings...
We’ve been alerted to the fact that you are showing many titles that are under copyright protection, without obtaining proper permissions. Some of titles are controlled by Kino Lorber in the U.S. and they include THE BLUE ANGEL, DIE NIBELUNGEN, and KRIEMHILD’S REVENGE. We will need to take retroactive licensing fees for these screenings. $250 for each title. You should also be aware that you have a number of films that are held by Janus Films on your website, including HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR and RULES OF THE GAME. These titles are NOT in the public domain. I expect you will be hearing from them soon, as well,. Your prompt response and handling of this matter is appreciated. Thank you.
