Coming Soon to the Jean Cocteau

The Jean Cocteau Cinema was Santa Fe's first "arthouse" theatre (it opened in 1977, as the Collective Fantasy), and one of the hallmarks of so-called arthouses is that they show foreign films that the big multiplexes don't touch.

And so it is with us. Today we like to say that we're the most eclectic movie theatre in The City Different, but foreign films remain an important part of our mix. Only the foreign films we show are a little different than the ones you might catch at other arthouses.

This week, for instance, we're showing MY BIG NIGHT, a hilarious romp by the Spanish filmmaker Alex de la Iglesia.



Coming up in the next few weeks we have two the biggest-grossing films in the entire world... but they're two films you may never have heard of, if you're in the US, since they have received almost no attention in America. I'm speaking of MERMAID and MONSTER HUNT, both out of China.

Have a taste:





Watch our website for showtimes.

See you at the movies.

Its been so long since I have watched movies from foreign markets, it was a staple of mine growing up. Definitely going to have to check both of those. Cheers George.

Ooh, Monster Hunt! Oh...right...I live 1,000 miles away...but it's still really awesome. I've never heard of The Mermaid, must look into it.

Monster Hunt looks so bloody awesome, I'm going to have to keep an eye on dvd release in Australia.

Alex De La Iglesia
Alex is big on the Spanish-speaking world. In fact, he wrote the prologue for the Spanish edition of AFFC, I don't know if you have read it, but he's a huge fann.

Re: Alex De La Iglesia
Yes. I've met Alex, and even visited one of his sets. He's a great guy, and a very talented director.

I saw the Mermaid on the same day that I saw Batman v Superman. It was a very trippy day at the movies.
