Marathon Begins

The GAME OF THRONES marathon begins tonight at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, at 7pm.

It's first come, first seated, and we have only 125 seats, so get there early if you want to be sure to get in.

You won't be the first in line, though.  That honor goes to these brave souls, who camped out overnight (and it was COLD last night):

Tonight we will be screening the first three episodes of season one: "Winter Is Coming," "The Kingsroad," and "Lord Snow."

Admission is FREE.

We will have plenty of GAME OF THRONES merchandise on hand, along with pizza, soft drinks, candy, ice cream, pastries, burritos, and our famous popcorn, the best in New Mexico.  And... for the first time... tonight the Jean Cocteau will be offering BHEER!

See you there!

((AFTERWARD))

Whew.  That was fun.

Huge crowd.  We filled every seat.  We could have filled two more theatres the same size as the Jean Cocteau.  The show started at 7:00 pm and we opened the door by 6:00 to get folks in from the cold... but no one who got in line after 5:30 made it inside.  My apologies to all of you who got turned away.  Better luck next week.  Those who did get in had fun, I think.  The show, as expected, looks great on the big screen.

Next week (Jan 13) we hope to have one of our cast members joining us via Skype.  And the week after... drum roll, please... MAISIE WILLIAMS will be joining us in person right here in Santa Fe.  That's Monday, January 20.   Mark it down on your calendars.
