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.

Nicely done!
It's wonderful that you've rescued this establishment. I've often dreamed of running an art-house theater... it's one of those "if I won the lottery" type of fantasies.

I do hope that you'll support your area's independent filmmakers and artists. We have oane locally-owned cinema (10 screens) in my hometown and they were kind enough to screen my first short film ahead of a much larger budgeted independent feature. It meant so much to me to feel supported by my community.

Either way, good luck with your new endeavor!
