The first of a new series on Bow tie cinema, and a film about how the medium is reshaping the lives of people around the world. This week we spoke to Bow tie Cinematographers and Cinematographer of the Year, Tom Stansfield.

The premiere cinema of the year is back in town.
Cinema 17, in the old theatre building in the former West Texas Air Force base, opens to the public for the first time in three years on Sunday.
The opening of Cinema 17 marks a change in strategy for the cinema.
The former air force base was built to hold the US Air Force’s new Titan airframe carrier, which has been designed for a more modern aircraft carrier.
The theater, which opened in 2018, was one of two cinema complexes at the base that were demolished to make way for the Air Force aircraft carrier in 2021.
The Air Force has moved to replace the two cinema buildings with a new facility.
In 2018, the Air Forces moved to destroy all cinema buildings on the base and build a new cinema complex, Cinema 17.
Cineplex 17 is open to the general public from 11:30am to 3pm on Sundays, with screenings starting at 10:30pm.
It is expected to have a full capacity of about 20,000 seats.
Lubbock’s city council announced it had received nearly $1.5 million in grants for the project.
The council has awarded $5.5m in grants and $2.1m in loans.
Councilman Joe Miller said it was “very important” that the cinema be open for the public.
“We have a history of showing film.
This is a wonderful place for a lot of people to come and see movies.”
This is a great opportunity for the community to get involved in the development of this space and hopefully create more jobs in the community,” he said.
