TREND on the Cocteau

cocteau
New Mexico's TREND magazine has a nice feature on the reborn Jean Cocteau Cinema in this month's issue.

You can check out the article (and some cool pictures) on line at http://issuu.com/trendmagazineglobal/docs/trend_v14-2_web/46

TREND is an architecture and style magazine, so understandably they gave a lot of ink to the architect who designed the original interior when the Collective Fantasy was reborn as the Cocteau in 1984.  That was well deserved.  I do wish, however, that they had also mentioned Jayne Franck, who did the redesign of our cafe area, including a wonderful reimagining of the concessions area with our stunning glass brick candy counter.  Jayne is off studying in Cambridge England just now, but she deserves a hand of applause so loud it could be heard even across oceans.

Still, a nice piece... it's great to know the theatre is still so beloved by the Santa Fe community.

This week, by the way, we are helping to host the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival (along with the Lensic, the CCA, and the Screen), one of Santa Fe's two major film fests.  A great lineup of movies is on offer.  If you're around, come, support the festival, see some movies.

In between the festival entries, we're also running two great fun fantasy/ horror films, one old and one very new: a newly restored and director approved print of the British classic THE WICKER MAN (with Edward Woodward, not Nicholas Cage, thank you), and the movie that the Mouse does not want you to see, ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW.

Here's a taste:





See you at the movies!

NM has been added to my dream USA tour because of Breaking Bad, but a visit to Santa Fe is mandatory because of the Jean Cocteau and you :-)

redcountess, your dream USA tour sounds fun and I bet it'll be packed, but can I make a suggestion? Find your local independent theater, like them on social media, and give them a visit! After I started reading about the Jean Cocteau on grrm's site, I found mine and started attending. I've been to quote-alongs (Monty Python, Princess Bride), sing-alongs (Grease, Mama Mia) and costume events, made new friends and gained a new hang out. My Retro Dome shows new films, too. This is coming not from a nag, nor from one who is quick to take up a cause- I'm more of a vote with my checkbook kinda person, who shops mom and pops to help keep them open. I thought the idea of supporting local indies was a good one and, well, yeah, I guess that's all I have to say about that.
