Magnolia Pictures Acquires 'Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview'
The conversation, conducted by Robert Cringley in 1995, will open in select theaters May 11.
Magnolia Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview, Robert Cringely’s 1995 conversation with the late co-founder of Apple.
The film had limited screenings this year at select theaters in the Landmark circuit, which is also owned by Magnolia’s parent company, the Wagner/Cuban Co. Magnolia now plans to open the film in select theaters May 11, with a DVD and VOD release to follow in the summer.
Small portions of the interview were originally used for a television series when it was first conducted. Recently rediscovered, the interview is being presented in its entirety.
“Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview is a fascinating document that will be enlightening and entertaining for anyone that’s interested in Jobs’ legacy,” Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said. “It’s a valuable piece of history that has thankfully been rescued from obscurity.”
