The death of the repertory and revival houses in most cities has been appropriately mourned, but who is here to grieve the death of campus film societies, which have shut down on one campus after another? … The campus auditoriums where once
we saw Ikiru are silent now on Sunday nights, but down in the lounge of the campus dorm, the kids are sitting in front of the 50-inch Mitsubishi, watching Weekend at Bernie's. … A young person seriously interested in film has little sense, these days, that he is part of a community. The collapse of campus film societies is the single most obvious reason for this. Serious discussion of good movies is no longer part of most students' undergraduate experience. —  Roger Ebert
