For New Mexicans

((... and fans from Arizona, Colorado, Texas, and other surrounding states who have reliable cars and enough free time to drive to Santa Fe... or maybe just a bunch of frequent flyer miles they need to use up.))

  Here's our schedule for our first week:

And I'll see you at the movies.

Hi George :)

I would love to go if I lived a bit closer (I am from the UK).Gutted I cant be there but have fun at the cinema George i am sure it will be a great success :) I have just finished reading your short story, 'Sandkings' and it is super awesome has to be one of my favourites!

Contest anyone?
There should be a contest for any one is North America to win two all expense paid tickets to fly out to Santa Fe for the weekend and see some shows in this theater. I am just an idea guy. I will trust George and his business partners to figure out the how and when. However, I will offer my professional services and be the first winner so we can test out the logistics for next time.

Littlefinger himself could not have thought of a better plan.

let me know if you need my mailing address for those tickets George (Plane, train or automobile, and of course theater).

GoT screenings
In five to ten years, when the show and books are finally done (in 10 years, surely!) there should be a GoT screening at the theatre. One season a day, the first Saturday of each month. That would be AWESOME.

In Taos currently, just an hour or so drive from Santa Fe, and my birthday is on the 15th......Hmmm

Hey George,

Is there a way I can ask you a question privately, without having to post it here publicly? It is something you will approve of, but I want to keep it private, please.

Re: Question
Email me. The address is on my website.

Re: Question
We all want your attention :)
I sent an email to what the interwebs tells me is your email last week. On the 10th we are hosting our own version of a Red Wedding, fully GOT nerded-out. Check the email if you'd like to see the homage we have paid. Will further clog your inbox after with pics that you didn't ask for :)
Best of luck with the theater! It sounds awesome!

Just dropped by the theatre, met George and got 5 FREE tickets to Orpheus on Friday night. Even though I live in Santa Fe I have never happened upon THE MAN before so that alone was a thrill.

It is so great to have the Jean Cocteau coming back. With pizza(!)
on offer at the concession stand. Forgot to ask but hoping that there will be real butter with the popcorn again.

So many thanks to you, George.

Congrats!!! I am sure a lot of hard work went into this!
Aug. 4th, 2013 02:57 am (UTC)
Are you guys going to show Rocky Horror? Seems kinda like a necessity
Aug. 4th, 2013 03:21 am (UTC)
Eventually, sure.
Aug. 4th, 2013 02:02 pm (UTC)
By rook or by crook!
I'll make a special trip to see my Number One mad scientist, Dr. Frank N. Furter.
Aug. 4th, 2013 05:47 pm (UTC)
Or by Night.
Must show this one at midnight, so totally fabulous.

Mr. Martin, I think it's quite noble that you are preserving a piece of history. I wish I lived closer so that I could visit your theater, but alas I'm stuck in New Jersey. I wish we could have preserved any of the old drive-in theaters in our state; if I had that kind of spare cash lying around, I'd love to introduce a new generation to the kind of organic movie-watching experience can be had from the back of an old hatchback on a balmy summer night.

Having spent my first 23 years in Albuquerque, I still tend to consider myself a New Mexican - even after nearly 24 years living in either Illinois or California.

Alas, San Diego is too far to drive, and if I came I'd have to visit family too - not that I mind visiting family.

Break a Leg
I'm in Abq - not sure I can make it opening weekend but would love to eventually get up there and check out the theater. Did someone say pizza?
Aug. 4th, 2013 02:03 pm (UTC)
break a leg:
Never whistle in-house,always have a light onstage (ghost light), give a stray cat a stage home, hang a (from the middle ages) glass witch's ball to trap evil spirits/thoughts (i.e. trolls), never hang mirrors onstage or lobby,if you must wear blue, wear silver with it; no peacock feathers,after close of first show the owner must be given a bunch of flowers stolen from a graveyard, always trip going onstage and say 'shit' under your breath and say 'In bocca al lupo' (May you be eaten by wolves) for luck also!Your local speywife.

George, one important question... what's the dress code for this new theater? I am an owner of a few Sweet Frog franchises state-wide and a lot of my friends are young attractive women in ponytails and tight pinky green SF shirts and shorts, I'm sure you've seen em spinning signs on roadside strip malls. Only asking because we've been refused service a few times due to the tight t-shirts... if you've ever been to one of my Sweet Frog frozen yogurt outfits, well... let's just say these horses ain't horseshoed ;)
Aug. 4th, 2013 08:54 pm (UTC)
Uh... it's a movie theatre... I don't think we have a dress code.

I don't know Sweet Frog frozen yogurt, or what sort of outfits your employees wear, but I can't imagine anyone being barred for wearing tight shirts or shorts.
Aug. 4th, 2013 10:18 pm (UTC)
No shirt, no shoes: no problem!!
Rocky Horror midnight showing just took on one awesome flavor.

Woohooo! Congratulations on opening your theater! Sadly the one from my childhood (where every movie was $1) got demolished for a gym. It had a Revenge of the Jedi poster in their lobby.

I picked up 4 tickets for Sunday's Forbidden Planet.
Aug. 4th, 2013 11:47 pm (UTC)
Interesting concept. Keeps the personal taxes down, sure. But how will it survive?

This seems right out of Chairman Mao's playbook. "Land of the free" does not refer to price.
Aug. 5th, 2013 05:48 am (UTC)
Re: Free
It's only free for the first week.
Aug. 6th, 2013 01:37 pm (UTC)
Chairman Mao would've loved Forbidden Planet.

Any plans to show films by local/otherwise independent filmmakers? I'd love to screen there, if the opportunity presented itself. Regardless, I love the concept of the Cocteau. Reminds me of Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. Anyone can be a patron of the arts.

Yes, we'll be showing indy films by local filmmakers.

Not sure what you mean by "the concept" of the Cocteau. We're no Kickstarter. No one is asking for donations.

You know...
...I always wanted to visit Sante Fe some day. While I can't make any of the dates posted, I will definitely have a reason to visit there in the future. :)
