Movie Theaters Struggle With Pivot to Streaming

On the Oct. 13 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters and a film director discuss movie theater woes, free Wi-Fi in public housing communities and a new film about Proposition 13. 

Movie Theaters Struggling
Disney’s pivot to a streaming strategy has had a huge impact on movie theater revenue. John Horn explains why theaters could become a casualty of the pandemic by end of year. 

Public Housing Wi-Fi
In an effort to address a lack of investment in broadband for Black and Latino communities, a new service is bringing free Wi-Fi to four public housing communities: Imperial Gardens, Jordan Downs, Pueblo del Rio and Nickerson Gardens. Sharon McNary explains how long this service will be free. 

The First Angry Man
The First Angry Man,” a documentary about Howard Jarvis and Proposition 13 is airing on KCET tonight. Director Jason Cohn discusses how this timely film about a campaign that slashed property taxes in California relates to the current Proposition 15 on the ballot.
