362. 三三五五: Gather by Twos and Threes

Choi, Ji-young 기자2016.06.18 17:00:49

In general, most movies are restricted by regulations in production, distribution, and promotion by major production companies. The Independent Movie genre has appeared as a way of seeking an escape from these regulations. It aims to make movies faithful to the writer’s spirit, and it usually takes the form of short films. In Korea, independent movies started to be made in the 1980s, and the movie named ‘Old Partner’ drew audiences totaling more than a million for the first time in the independent movie market.

55 Cine is a cinema exclusively for independent movies. It opened in 2015. The name of the cinema, 55, is the sum of the numbers from one to ten, which means it has 55 unique features. In this article, we will introduce the five most important features.

1. First Independent Movie Cinema: 55 Cine is the first independent movie cinema in the provinces outside of Seoul.

2. Public Operations: It is established and operated by the Daegu, Gyeongbuk Movie Image Cooperative, which is made up of various people such as audiences, movie producers, people related to film policy, civic groups, and so on. They want to manage a cinema for all the people who love movies, rather than for pursuing profits.

3. Local Cinema: It shows independent movies, short films, and documentaries which have fewer opportunities to be seen in large movie theaters. Moreover, videos produced by local citizens can be screened at here.

4. Community Cinema: The 55 Cine aims to make a ‘movie community’, making program schedules with audiences and various communities. It also provides a communication program between audiences and movie directors.

5. 33 Coffee Shop: There is a community café called ’33 Coffee Shop’. Communications and seminars can be conducted while drinking tea, coffee and alcoholic beverages.

   There are more than 2,200 theaters which could show the 1,000 independent movies produced every year. However, it is difficult to find theaters that show these movies. Therefore, being a local independent movie cinema, 55 Cine can introduce many and various independent movies to more and more audiences, helping them become established in the movie market.
