Episode 48- The world of movie making with Eddie Tamir

Watching a movie today can be done by just pushing the right buttons on your remote and making use of streaming services such as Netflix. Despite this convenience, some movie fans want the whole cinematic experience that no streaming service can provide – and that’s where Eddie Tamir comes in. Eddie and Lindy Tamir are the owners of Elsternwick Classic Cinema, a business that’s reviving the long-lost tradition of classic cinemas in Melbourne. Eddie shares what his career was before venturing into the movie-making business and how his passion for reviving cinemas got started. He discusses some of the challenges his company faced as well as some of the lucky moments they had. Eddie also explains how cinemas work, from sourcing the film to splitting profits, as well as the various processes involved in running a big film festival.

Don’t miss this week’s segment of Reuben’s Rant where I provide commentary on why business owners should prevent working themselves out of a job resulting in having too much time on their hands.
