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.

It's a shame old theaters are no longer "cost effective" because they used to have the best ambiance and show the best movies. I remember taking a trip through seattle when I was a kid and watched TRON on the big screen in a famous theater up there. Can't remember the name, but the decor and tone it set for the movie has stuck with me these many years later (maybe more than the film!).

Just out of curiosity, GM. Is there any one particular actor/character in the TV series that perfectly embodies the character you envisioned while writing them? I think the casting is amazing, but does one stand out more than any other?
