Martin Scorsese's new film The Irishman highlights growing tension between theatres and streaming services
Every week, the q screen panel convenes to look at the biggest stories happening in the worlds of film and television.
This week, host Tom Power is joined by entertainment journalist Tina Hassannia and arts and culture critic Lara Zarum to talk about Martin Scorsese's new film The Irishman.
Despite its star-studded cast and nearly $200 million budget, the film won't be getting a wide release. The Irishman will only be playing in select independent theatres before hitting Netflix a month later. Our screen panel unpacks what this decision means for theatre-goers and how it impacts the rivalry between theatres and streaming services.
