Digital cinema is expanding in areas other than the projection booth. Companies that package alternative content for theater screens, such as live performing arts via satellite, have branched into independent programming with single features and curated series such as 'From Britain With Love," arriving Saturday at the Gateway.

Digital cinema is expanding in areas other than the projection booth. Companies that package alternative content for theater screens, such as live performing arts via satellite, have branched into independent programming with single features and curated series such as 'From Britain With Love," arriving Saturday at the Gateway.

A partnership between Emerging Pictures, The Film Society of Lincoln Center and the UK Film Council, the program extends the theatrical reach of six new films produced in England and previously seen in America only at festivals, if at all.

It kicks off with the U.S. premiere of "Toast," an alternately amusing and sad coming-of-age tale based on the memoir by bestselling British food writer Nigel Slater. It chronicles the time immediately before and after the death of Nigel's mother, when a vicious battle develops between the boy and his potential stepmother (Helena Bonham Carter) for control of Nigel's father's palate. The 8 p.m. screening is followed by a webcast Q&A with director S.J. Clarkson.

The series continues June 13 with the BAFTA Award-winning psychological drama "In Our Name," followed June 15 by "Africa United," the story of three Rwandan kids who walk 3000 miles to see the World Cup match. Additional films screen June 30, 23 and 27.
