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.

It's whatever cut the distributor has chosen to release. Probably the producer's cut. Most times, to show the director's cut in a movie theatre, you actually have to have the director present.

Of course, if Joe Lynch wants to come visit Santa Fe...

((I have been looking into this subject, since I would very much like to show the director's cuts of some older films, like BLADERUNNER and PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID. But the rights are not always easy to obtain)).

Directors Cut of Blade Runner! Yes please. I might hurt somebody for this...you know something small...like a spider.

It seems you are very much involved in the cinema business. Do you negotiate the rights yourself?

I keep wondering why don't other cinemas in USA and the world screen Game of Thrones, does HBO ban it or something?

It's a television show, not a theatrical feature. All sorts of legal hurdles need to be surmounted to show it in a movie house.

The marathon at the Cocteau is by special arrangement with HBO.

Thank you very much, I see.

I'm sure it can be done and worth all the hurdles.

Sent you a personal message, if you don't mind.
