Kids Free at the Cocteau

cocteau
Tomorrow at noon the Jean Cocteau Cinema will have its first children's matinee. All kids under twelve will be admitted FREE.

The film we're offering is a classic... a great comedy, and a terrific horror film... ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.



If you can't make tomorrow's debut, we'll be showing the film again on Sunday (27th) and Thursday (the 31st) at 2:00 pm.  Children under twelve will be admitted free to those showings as well.

For grown-up fans of Bud and Lou, like me, we've also scheduled an evening showing on Tuesday (29th) at 8:30.  Kids are welcome at that one too, if it's not past their bedtimes, but they have to pay like everyone else.

In honor of Halloween week, we have a full slate of fun monster and horror flicks.  WICKER MAN and ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW have both been held over, we debuted THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS tonight, we have ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW coming up on Halloween night, and we have a special one-time only screening of the original HOUSE OF WAX 3D, starring Vincent Price.  More on that one later.

See you at the movies.

That's one of my favorite movies. It was the inspiration for this comic: http://legjackets.tumblr.com/post/52761425820/we-watched-this-by-candlelight-on-halloween-on-a

It would be fun to watch by candlelight, without the power out, since it's that time o year. It's going to be even more fun in an afternoon matinee. :3

Abbott and Costello
Again, a great movie choice, Mr. "M". All of the A and C movies are top-notch!

I really love living in Florida
But your theatre really, really makes me want to move out there sometimes.
Sigh...

That does sound wonderful. Makes me want to see if any theaters in Connecticut do anything like this. New Mexico is a long way to go for a movie.

My very favorite Abbot and Costello. Of course it has my favorite Dracula and Wolfman too. :)

Hey George, this sounds awesome, wish I could make it with my ladiez (the 8:30 showing).

Wanted to bring one thing to your attention. Re: popcorn oil. Ser, I think someone steered you wrong there... coconut oil is the piece de resistance of popping oils. It is expensive, has a high smoke point, and it's ideal for popcorn. In fact many small indy theaters still use it, and people will come in just for the popcorn, sans the movie. Canola oil or other soy or vegetable "protein" oils are the cheapo garbage the multiplexes all use, and once you've air popped with coconut, there's no going back.

Interesting back story: before I got into the frozen yogurt business, I owned and operated a strip club in Jersey. What was unique about my joint was I was one of the first in the exotic dancing industry to cater to nerd culture, so to speak. The girls all wore sci-fi and video game costumes, everything was SF-F oriented, hell, we even had Lovecraft decor on the walls. Basically think Jack Rabbit Slim's from Pulp Fiction but geared to the nerd subculture niche. Anyway, one of our dancers was a real gourmet type (she was the better, more endowed of our two Lara Crofts ;), and I bought her air popper off her and she introduced me to coconut oil. It was a huge hit at the club. In fact, I was critical in the process of introducing the soon to be released coconut oil flavored frozen yogurt to my southwest Sweet Frog franchises.

We will have to disagree about coconut oil. It's unhealthy, and the popcorn popped with sunflower, safflower, or canola is much tastier.

Air popped is another matter. Air popped is great, but it doesn't use oil, that's the point.

Your sci-fi strip club sounds like fun.

Bud & Lou was one of the greatest acts & the movie showing is one of my favorites. I am planning a trip to Santa Fe ( Mostly for Golf reason) but will be sure to visit the Coxteau.
