This Week at the Cocteau

Jack Kerouac and Jean Shepherd are coming to the Jean Cocteau Cinema this week... sort of.

In honor of the reason, we're showing my second favorite Christmas movie of all time (I love it, but I have to confess, I love the Alastair Sim CHRISTMAS CAROL even more), A CHRISTMAS STORY.



Jean Shepherd was the great chronicler of what childhood was like for kids of 40s and 50s, and A CHRISTMAS STORY hits all the right notes.  A great film.  Watch out, Ralphie, you'll shoot your eye out!

As for what the grown-ups were doing in the 1950s, we also have BIG SUR, based on Jack Kerouac's writings.



I haven't seen this one yet, but it looks great.

See you at the movies.

Winter Is Coming...

... to Santa Fe, and the Jean Cocteau Cinema.

The fourth season of GAME OF THRONES is only a few months away.  Tyrion, Jon, Arya, Sansa, the Hound, Joffrey, Cersei, Jaime, Brienne, Bronn, Sam, Daenerys, and all the rest of the characters you love or hate will be returning to your TV screens... oh, along about late March or early April, I'd say.  So what time could be better to refresh yourselves on the first three seasons of the show?




So, by special arrangement with HBO, the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe will be presenting a GAME OF THRONES retrospective.  New Mexicans -- and lucky tourists passing through at the right time -- will have a chance to see the show the way only VIPs and cast members and critics have ever seen it before, at private screenings and premieres -- on the big screen at a movie theatre.



Starting on Monday, January 6, and continuing through late March, the Cocteau will be presenting weekly screenings of GAME OF THRONES, in order.  Some weeks we'll show two episodes, some weeks three.   I expect to be on hand personally for many of the screenings (though, PLEASE NOTE, probably not all), to introduce the episodes beforehand, answer questions afterward, and sign a few books as well.   And it may be we will have some other special guests as well, either in person or via Skype.  Can't promise anything as of yet, but we're working on it.



Our official screening schedule looks like this:

Monday, January 6           season one, episodes 1-3,
Monday, January 13         season one, episodes 4-5,
Monday, January 20         season one, episodes 6-8,
Monday, January 27         season one, episodes 9-10,
Monday, February 3              season two, episodes 1-3,
Wednesday, February 12      season two, episodes 4-5,
Wednesday, February 19      season two, episodes 6-8,
Friday, February 28          season two, episodes 9-10,
Monday, March 3              season three, episodes 1-3,
Monday, March 10            season three, episodes 4-5,
Monday, March 17            season three, episodes 6-8,
Monday, March 24            season three, episodes 9-10


And I have saved the best part for last.

Admission to all GAME OF THRONES screenings will be ABSOLUTELY FREE.

No tickets, no passes, no payment required.  First come, first served.  Come to the Cocteau and come on in... so long as we have seats.  But we only have 125 of those, so best come early if you want to be sure of a place.

We'll have door prizes as well.  Not to mention the best popcorn in town.

See you at the cinema, for GAME OF THRONES as you've never seen it before.
