Tonight on Inquiry we welcome back WHEELER WINSTON DIXON. He is the James Ryan Endowed Professor of Film Studies and professor of English at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. His new book is STREAMING: MOVIES, MEDIA, AND INSTANT ACCESS . Professor Dixon declares that we are now in the “postfilmic era”, a time when movie film will no longer exist and all movies will be shot digitally. DVDs will also cease to exist as all films will be “streamed” and movie houses, those that are still extant, will only show digital copies of movies. But what are the implications of all of this for the art of film, the preservation of old films and how we watch movies? The answers are disheartening and  a little bit frightening. Tune in and find out why.

Inquiry welcomes back WILLIAM WALLACE, Executive Director of the Worcester Historical Museum. Tonight Bill talks about the upcoming HARVEY BALL awards gala and the exciting WORCESTER IN THE 1960s exhibition.
