The Amazing Maisie

If you weren't at the Jean Cocteau Cinema on Monday night, you missed out on all the fun.

We had a great day.  People started lining up as the sun was coming up, and the queue grew longer all day.  We sent out coffee and donuts to make sure no one froze or starved to death while waiting in line.  Doors opened at 6:00, with the show starting at 7:00pm, but Maisie Williams and the wolves turned up at 5:00 or so to meet the fans.  Maisie is amazing... not only a talented young actress, but a delight in person.  I think she spoke to everyone in line, signed their books and Funko Pop dolls, posed for pictures.   Not everyone got into the theatre, alas, but everyone in line got to meet Maisie...

 ... and the wolves. Flurry and Zorro, the wolf ambassadors from Wild Spirit, were great hits as well.




Maisie is on her way back to LA now... but I think she liked Santa Fe, and one day we hope to have her back again.

Meanwhile, the GOT marathon continues next Monday night at the Jean Cocteau.  Next time we will be screening episodes nine and ten from season one -- "Baelor" and "Fire and Blood."  And we'll be joined by executive producers and showrunners DAVID BENIOFF and D.B. WEISS, who will be Skyping in after the episodes to answer your questions.

Line up early.  It's sure to be another epic crowd.

I love that you've been able to create these wonderful experiences for people, but as a person with limited mobility I always worry a little when I hear about things which are first come first served. I'm curious whether you have any provision for people like me, who might not be physically capable of standing in a line for hours, and can't walk sideways so they need to sit near an aisle?

Well, when we remodeled the theatre, we did rip out some seats to provide some space for wheelchairs, which did not previously exist. We have one patron in a powered wheelchair who comes every week to the GAME OF THRONES screenings, often with her service dog... though, wisely, she left him home on Monday when the wolves were here.

Thank you for caring enough to make that happen.
