This Weekend at the Jean Cocteau

We have two new movies opening this weekend at the Jean Cocteau... PLUS a short film, and a very special guest as well!

At the early show, we will be debuting KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM, a comedy/ adventure about a group of LARPers who, ah, inadvertently summon an actual succubus from the pit of hell.  (Don't you HATE it when that happens?)  It stars Ryan Kwanten, Steve Zahn (TREME), Summer Glau (SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES), Margarita Levieva, and our own Peter Dinklage (GAME OF THRONES).

And with KNIGHTS, we will also be showing EVE ANGELIC, a short film by local filmmaker Luca Ceccarelli, part of which was actually shot in the basement of 418 Montezuma Avenue, right under the Cocteau.

The second feature debut will be RAZE, a gut-wrenching new film from Tribeca.  Think FIGHT CLUB for keeps.  Think HUNGER GAMES with teeth.  Think BATTLE ROYALE without subtitles.

Coolest of all, after the RAZE screening, star ZOE BELL will be dropping by the Jean Cocteau via Skype to talk about the film and answer questions, and...

And?  Yes, yes, there's more.  After both KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM and RAZE, I will turning up to hand out some door prizes, including a couple of tickets to a certain very special preview screening coming up in March.  So be there!  You have to be present to win!

Oh, and we have a late late show too.  This week, THE WALL.  No, no, not the Night's Watch's Wall.  Pink Floyd's.

See you at the movies.

Is there any way those of us who live nowhere near Santa Fe might some day get to see Knights of Badassdom?

Well, it's probably playing at a theatre near you as well. We're not the only ones showing it. And sooner or later it's bound to show up on DVDs, Blu-Rays, and Netflix. Everything does.

I believe I read that Knights is supposed to be available on demand through quite a few services the second week in February. A lot of indie theatres across the country are playing it or doing special showings for the next week or two so it's definitely worth looking for if you have a kind of non-traditional theater in your area.

Wish I was a bit closer to New Mexico (on the wrong side of Texas :-) ). The theater sounds great and the choices in films has been fun to read about!
