Gruvi Weekly Digest #27 — A weekly catch up on what we found interesting at Gruvi.
This Star Wars day we start with a look at the gains the exhibition sector of the European film industry have had in the past year. We also share an article on a new VoD platform that has Criterion and TCM uniting their forces. Then we stop to ponder the correlation between ping pong table and the success of tech companies and have a look at the latest in interior design. And we couldn’t let May the 4th go by without reading about a Super Star Destroyer’s super death.
