Closing Our Doors…

logoDear Readers,

I’m sad to report that Mr Rumsey’s has closed its doors today.

We won’t be away forever, we simply feel that we want to refocus, re-energise and re-approach the way we produce film journalism and that calls for some time away during which we can really plan how to move forwards over the years to come. When we return it will likely be in the form of another website or publication entirely, however we will most certainly do our best to keep you in the loop as to what we have planned.

I believe that I can speak for all the team here in saying that we are all extremely grateful for the opportunities this site has granted us. I most certainly never dreamt we would be able to enjoy the privileges we have when I started this venture as a little blog back in 2012. Since then it has grown above and beyond my expectations. And so I just want to thank all of you who read the site, who have told other people about us and who have passionately debated with us over the years. It’s been enormous fun to get to know some of you and we hope to see you all again in the future.

Thanks again and we hope to carry on talking movies with you at some point in the not so distant future.

James Walpole
