Robert Redford's plans toward global domination continue apace.
Sundance Cinemas, the indie theater chain tied to Redford's Sundance Institute, today announced a new location: Taking over the Metro 10 Cinema in Seattle's University District.
Sundance Cinemas -- which has locations in San Francisco, Houston, and Madison, Wis., and is building theaters in West Hollywood, Calif., and Dobbs Ferry in New York's Westchester County -- will take over operations of the Seattle theater on May 1. A "revitalization" will happen over the next few months, but the theater will stay open throughout.
Earlier this week, Redford announced the formation of a new production company, Sundance Productions, that will create shows for TV and the Internet. The company's first program, according to The New York Times, will be a documentary "All the President's Men Revisited," a look back at the Washington Post reporters whose investigations uncovered the Watergate scandal and all that followed.
Redford will produce and narrate the documentary, which will include a reunion of reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, their Post editor Ben Bradley - and, of course, Redford, who portrayed Woodward in the 1976 movie "All the President's Men."
Meanwhile, on the international front, the first Sundance London Music and Film Festival is gearing up for April 26-29 at London's O2 arena.
