CINESTUDIO FOUNDER TO SPEAK AT
FALL PREVIEW MEETING

Tuesday, September 8, 2015
"The Past and Present of the Art of Cinema"

James Hanley grew up in Ealing, England and after working in film, Cinerama, independent TV and IT News, moved to Los Angeles to study film at UCLA with the goal of becoming a director.  He then moved to Hartford when he was awarded a full scholarship to Trinity College.

While here, he developed a love for theaters after seeing the massive old Roxy in New York and in 1969 that interest led him to become one of the founders and now Co-President of  the Cinestudio theater located on the Trinity College campus.  Among a dwindling number of surviving independent theaters nationwide, Cinestudio is a major resource for students interested in film.  Mr. Hanley saw that institutions like Cinestudio needed to reinvent themselves in the face of changing technology and social function.

More than a few Trinity students who interacted with him have succeeded in the industry - including the prominent director and screenwriter Stephen Gyllenhaal and his children, actors Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal.  Mr. Hanley has been a presenter of the ALP seminar "Movie Buffs" for many years.  In his talk at the Preview Meeting, he will speak about the maturing nature of film as one of the enduring human arts.
