A funny remake of "The Prisoner" - with a 1980's twist to it 'The Laughing Prisoner' is a remake (or homage) of (to) the Kafkaesque 1960's television show 'The Prisoner' with Patrick McGoohan in the lead role. This time it is a successful television presenter (Jools Holland) who decides to quit at the height of his stardom. He is abducted from his apartment and brought to the village, where number 2 (a young Stephen Fry) is questioning him. The whole show has a cosy 1980's feel to it, with several bands from that period performing their music.

Why shouldn't a person be able to pay just a few dollars to stream a movie at home, when going to the movie or buying the DVD is expensive more? At the theater, does the projectionist load a film container on a 35mm projector and turn into it on? Increasingly, the answer is no . The majority of theaters have hot to all-digital systems. The movie is downloaded from the vendor, along with an electronic code. That code can be great for just one showing, on one specific day. If the right code is not available, or whether it does not work properly, then there is no showing.
