MSOUnDTM Sir, I would like to find out why there are so many repeats of one thing and none of another. Some shows are on four or five times and others appear only once. How come? Also, I wasn’t home last night and missed FAMILY PLOT. This was the only date you had listed. Is this one that will only be shown once Thank you, R.W. Tolen Dear Sir, My parents and I think that HBO is the best thing that ever hit television. I like the encore system a lot because 1 can see movies that I liked over again. Also, could you give me some idea of what new movies will be coming up Sincerely, Dick Lessing Many viewers write asking about repeats of new programs. Some say there are too many, others say there aren’t enough. What we do is show new programs three to five times after they premiere. They’re shown at different hours on different days and usually spread over a four week period. This way you can watch a show when it’s most convenient for you. In addition, you can preview a film for children or watch your favorite network shows without missing an HBO feature you want to see. Since new shows premiere every weekend, those that begin at the end of the month will carry over into the following month. The Front, for example, premieres July 24 and plays again on the 28th. It will continue its run into the early weeks of August—just like Family Plot, which premiered on May 29th and continued into June. Besides the new shows each month, we also encore a few of the shows from earlier months that viewers tell us they especially enjoyed. These are shown only one to three times during a month. Unfortunately we are not allowed to announce upcoming films that are now playing in theatres. What we can tell you is that, although there are exceptions, we generally show a movie nine to twelve months after it is first released in the theatre. By showing so many new films each month, HBO brings you nearly all of the major Hollywood releases. The selection is based on what our research and your letters tell us you’d like to see. 22 COMING NEXT MONTH SOPHIA LOREN Academy Award Winner AUGUST 1-3 MONDAY 1 6:00 CHILDREN'S THEATRE Cry Wolf p. 14 7:00 THE FRONT Woody Allen’s a scheming bungler who pretends to author the work of a blacklisted writer (PG-1:34) p. 16 9:00 COUNTDOWN AT KUSINI An African nation’s struggle for independence.
