Buying a Cinema

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.

the Jean Cocteau
Glad to see your breathing new life into the Jean Cocteau. A beautiful local theater built in 1927 "The Poncan Theater" was saved by community efforts here. Having been placed on National Register of Historic Places may have helped save it from demise. It has been beautifully restored and now when I buy my tickets I recall that my mother's first job was a ticket taker when "Gone with the Wind" was in it's original 1939 run. They have a nice website including the history, pics and restoration efforts.
