Hoboken Movie Lineup: 9/13/2013
Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ
We asked last week – that Bow Tie Cinemas show more documentaries. They did offer a non-Hollywood movie this week, another Filipino flick: The Bit Player.
(Note: They are showing The Family (with DeNiro) – which we also requested. Hooray!)
In the past, I was curious why, when demographics show that only 0.7% of the population of Hoboken is Filipino, why show movies like this? Is it even profitable to show such “targeted” films over artistic movies that might attract a wider audience?
A little more research solved the equation. By showing Filipino movies here – they attract many others from the area, as Hudson County ranks #1 in New Jersey for Filipino concentration (3.3%).
So there you have it. In case you were wondering, here is what “EKSTRA (The Bit Player)” is about: “A Bit Player” is a drama-comedy film which follows a seemingly usual day in the life of Loida Malabanan, as she embarks on yet another taping day of a soap opera, as a bit player. As the shoot progresses, we get a glimpse of the truth in the ruling system of the production, as well as the exploitation on the marginalized laborers like her.”
See trailer below.
