Ivy Cinema's three participating members will produce jointly at least five films this spring, regardless of the results of current negotiations on the U.N. Council's decision to withdraw from the group.
Those facts were apparent yesterday as Robert B. Watson '37, Associate Dean of Students, attributed Ivy Cinema's lack of financial success to the increased number of College activities this year and to competition from the Brattle and University Theatres.
Representatives of the Harvard Liberal Union, Ivy Films, and the U.N. Council will issue a joint statement shortly on the future of Ivy Cinema. They have already unanimously approved the production of five films during the spring term.
Yesterday's negotiations tried to determine how the U.N. Council could withdraw from Ivy Cinema--which the Council's executive board voted to do Wednesday night--without financially injuring the H.L.U. and Ivy Films.
