What is the importance and reasons for independent cinemas which show diverse films in comparison to commercial cinema chains?
The importance of independent cinema is to show real world content or explore imagination to the extreme; as in opposition to the antithesis of mainstream movies which caters to the average audience and keeps them in their comfort zone. Independent cinema has the ability to expand the mind and heart without compromising its integrity in exchange for monetary compensation.
