Cinema With Passion Takes a Winter Break
After an impressive eight-year run, Asian Media Access' Cinema With
Passion film exhibition series must take a break as it looks for a
new venue. Cinema With Passion consistently brought Asian films to
the metro area, including the best in kung-fu, fantasy, animation,
and new Hong Kong films. AMA also enhanced the "Asian experience" by
selling Asian snacks at the theater and offering midnight-screening
audiences a festive and imaginative atmosphere, as attendees would
cheer during films and sometimes dress up in costume.
An ongoing success for Asian Media Access, City Pages named Cinema
With Passion the metro area's "Best Entertainment" in 1997, so we're
not planning to make the break too long.
As you read this, we're searching high and low for a new venue, so we
hope to resume the Twin Cities' "Best Entertainment" by the time you
need to turn on your air conditioners.
Meantime, we'll try a stop-gap measure to make sure you get your film
fix. Starting January 18, you're welcome to head down to the lower
level of the Metropolitan State University building in Minneapolis
(730 Hennepin Avenue) at 11.00, Saturday mornings for an informal
showing of......whichever film attendees decide on.
Steve or Tanya from the AMA office will get the equipment and film
together for you. Bring snacks if you'd like.
See you there!
