Buying a Cinema

froggy
For those of you interested in following my Adventures in the Screen Trade, the SANTA FE REPORTER has uploaded a short clip from the press conference wherein I announced my purchase of "Santa Fe's most beloved movie theatre," the Jean Cocteau.



FYI, there was a lot more to the press conference than that. Most notably, I announced the hiring of Jon Bowman, the founder and former director of the Santa Fe Film Festival, who will be managing the Cocteau. Jon is already hard at work. We hope to reopen the theatre this summer. Besides an eclectic menu of films both old and new, we also plan to have midnight movies and children's matinees, and some very special events, including music, comedy, and author readings.

Congrats! I really really love old movie theaters; wish there was something like that in Louisville (well there is, but they use it for concerts more than for screening old/lesser-known films). I'm gonna try to remember the Cocteau, in case I'm ever in Arizona.

Being in Arizona won't help. The theatre is in New Mexico.

Doh! Brain fart. Isn't the southwest just all one big arid state out there anyway? Oh wait, that's Texas...
