Tonight at the Cocteau

Two new... and very different... films will open at the Jean Cocteau tonight.

TOUCHY-FEELY tells the story of a massage therapist and her family.



And EXTRATERRESTIAL is our first Spanish language titles.  (Subtitled for English speakers).  Santa Fe, like Northern New Mexico in general, has a large Hispanic population, but very few of the local theatres ever show movies in Spanish, so we are hoping to make that a regular part of the mix.  ANd not just Spanish art films either, the kind that get entered at Cannes and compete for "Best Foreign Film" Oscars, but genre flicks as well.  EXTRATERRESTIAL comes to us from the Spanish director Nacho Vigolondo, who has been described as "the Woody Allen of science fiction."   Looks like fun.



So if you're in Santa Fe... or Albuqueruqe, or Taos, or Espanola, or wherever... drop by and join us.

You can even pick up some signed Neil Gaiman books while you're here.  While the supply lasts.

(We have my own books too.  The supply of those will last forever).

And don't forget our midnight movie, SPIDER BABY.  Previews for that one several posts below.  Shows start at 11pm.

I wish I lived in Santa Fe this theater sounds awesome. Hey George did you hear about Stevie Nicks crushing on you and writing Game of Thrones inspired poetry? Maybe you should have her come to the theater for a show and get her involved with HBO to write Last of the Giants!

You get an extra boat full of love for premiering a movie about massage therapists that doesn't revolve around the less legal aspects of the industry. I only wish I could have attended that opening.

Vigalondo (who directed the great cult classic Timecrimes) wrote the prologue for the Spanish version of A Dance with Dragons, as did another famous Spanish genre filmmaker, Álex de la Iglesia, for one of the previous books. You should bring one of his film to the cinema too.

Actually, we're working on that. I want to have Alex here to show WITCHING AND BITCHING.
