Next Wednesday, we are holding a PCTea Party in Cinema City. The original program comprises a Champagne Reception cum Tea Party followed by a lecture on recent IP Developments by Professor Jeremy Phillips.
The management of Cinema City have offered me the option of following the lecture with a film show (movie). It seems like a good idea, but with hundreds of thousands of films to choose from, what should we see?
As it will be two days before Yom Kippur, the Jazz Singer (Al Jolson) springs to mind. Then there was the remake The Jazz Singer where Lawrence Olivier plays Cantor Rabinowitch. Is Olivier a more convincing Chazan than Jolson is a son of black cotton pickers?
Kippur is another option.
On IP themes, Jeremy suggested the Man in the White Suit – with Sir Alec Guiness, which, if the suit is a kittel, could be appropriate for Yom Kippur as well. Another of Jeremy’s suggestions is Intellectual Property.
So what do you think? Come up with a suggestion and we may screen the movie as an added bonus!
