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.

Jean cocteau
Hi George,
I'm a big fan of Game of Thrones and also a Santa Fe native. I just want to toss you an idea - how about making the theater an over 21 beer and pizza theater? Portland Oregon is full of them and they are great! Just wanted to put that out there. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the space.

Re: Jean cocteau
That's our hope. Lots of hoops to jump through, though.
