Taking the “art” out at Keystone

I’ve got a pretty broad definition of art. And a pretty broad definition of art films.

But “Get Smart”? “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”? “Indiana Jones”? “The Happening”? “Sex in the City”?

Such is the lineup at Landmark’s Keystone Art Cinema, who’s website still claims that it “present a wide array of movies, from independent and foreign language films to documentaries, restored classics and non-traditional studio fare.”

Admittedly, art films are a tough sell–especially in the summer (See Philadelphia’s take on the problem here). But here’s hoping this the relationship between Keystone Arts and mainstream Hollywood is just a summer fling and not a long-term relationship.
