Grand Opening

The bar at the Jean Cocteau has been serving beer and wine and a few mixed drinks for most of the past month, but all the while construction was still going on during the days, as the last few finishing touches were done.  But now the work is finished, and next week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we are having our official

                                                                                GRAND OPENING

We'll be having free movies all three days, from opening to close.  The Tuesday matinee will be CHARADE, with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.  On Wednesday, it's ONE-EYED JACKS with Marlon Brando.  On Thursday, Abbott & Costello in JACK AND THE BEANSTALK.  We're running late shows all three days as well, starting at 11:00 pm:  SPIDER BABY on Tuesday, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE on Wednesday, and THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE on Thursday.  And in between, all three days, we'll be screening BACK TO THE FUTURE at 6:10 and 8:30.


Oh, we'll be showing assorted cartoons and short subjects as well.  (And of course, lots of trailers).  And we will be offering a special drink, the Flux Capacitor, along with four kinds of draft beer, wine, beer, the best popcorn in New Mexico, pizza, candy, all the usual.

And that's not even the coolest part.  The coolest part is that we will have Doc Brown's TIME MACHINE with us as well!  Yes, complete with the real flux capacitor, though as I recall this one doesn't have a Mr. Fusion yet.  It will be tooling around Santa Fe starting on Tuesday morning, and during show times you will find it right in front of the theatre (assuming our parking permit comes through).  Oh, and we'll have our own Doc Brown to explain its workings to you.

And on Wednesday (ONE DAY ONLY) we will have the DeLorean's owner, Ernie Cline, on hand as well... showing off the car, and signing copies of his novel READY PLAYER ONE.

The DeLorean will be hard to top, admittedly... but we hope our new bar will be a star attraction as well.  Even if you don't have time for a movie, drop by and see it, we hope you'll think it is as cool as we do.  Remember, no charge for admission.  For those three days only, all movies are FREE.

draft beer
Is it craft beer?

Charade is still one of my favorite films! Maybe I'll have to trek up north Tuesday afternoon. Congratulations!

Coming to Santa Fe
Hi George,

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the opening event, since I am not in Santa Fe before March 7th. However, being a big fan of your work, I was wondering if there is a possibility to meet and get a book signed between March 7th and 15th.

I'd appreciate if you could let me know - otherwise I will try to visit the Jean Cocteau cinema in my spare time.

Greetings from a Croatian girl living in Germany,

Re: Coming to Santa Fe
If you are going to be in Santa Fe, swing by the Jean Cocteau any time that we're open, and you'll find autographed copies of all my books there on sale.

And not only my own titles, but also novels and collections by Michael Chabon, Diana Gabaldon, Steve Stirling, Robin Hobb, Pat Conroy, Peter S. Beagle, and more. All autographed.

A bookstore inside a movie theater!
Yet another reason to love you.

I just wanted to point out that the word "Specials" is misspelled on the flyer. I also want to point out that I'm extremely bummed that I don't live in Santa Fe. Otherwise, I'd be down at the Cocteau every night!

Good times!
This type of project is something that it seems like you're able to have a lot of fun with. I am definitely jealous of the people living close by. As your project has developed I think I have gone from "...well if I'm ever in the area" to the thought that I need to make sure this trip happens. From your movie selection so far, it seems like it doesn't matter when I go because your selections have all been amusing. I suppose the next most important question is what do you have for draught beers at the bar?

Type-o on poster
I'm sure other people have mentioned it, but just in case: there is a type-o in "Drink Specials" on the last line of the Grand Opening poster.

Hope the event is a success. If I lived closer, I'd love to stop in for a Flux Capacitor.

Is it too late to fix the drink "speicals"?

I love the kiva (arched opening, circular) fireplace. Even in brick it is very New Mexico.

Of course, having been born and reared in Albuquerque, I'm a bit biased.

Love the art deco styling. Reminds me of my place. :)

~I can tend the bar for you! I know how to be generous with beer on tap without spilling so much broth..Plus, I don't drink like others..What do you think?~

Hhahah! Hi George..

Oh man, I wish I could be there. Sounds awesome!

I espeically adore that ethnic chimney-breast...
modelled on the Dreadfort's torture chambers, perchance? 'Break a leg', sweet prince of darkness.

liquor at a movie theater?
Maybe I don't get out much... but I have never heard of this. Then again I generally go to the chain theaters. The fire place is a nice touch. Are you guys going to show major new releases at all? Not sure what is involved in getting those from studios. It must be harder for independents.

Doc Brown is awesome.
I wonder if it's the same Doc Brown we've used for a couple events at our company here in Orlando. He also does Universal Studio events. He's quite good. Wish I lived closer, sound like an awesome event!

So I turned to my wife Saturday and said "I'd really like to go to New Mexico at some point" She got all excited and said "For the Balloon Races!!!! and me, without engaging my filter said "No! GRRM has a theater there and I'd like to see it!" :-/ I tried to save the day by reminding her my Niece and Nephew live there and my Boss's Mom has a Horse Ranch we can visit but I think the damage was done! She didn't say "No" though so I think we're good! ;)

Bar in a theater?
Yes, Here in Long Beach Ca I have a local Cine called the Art Theatre that has a wine bar connected to it, shows art films along with the well thought of films like Nebraska, 12 years a slave & so on. It makes the neighborhood so much more livable. I am planning a long road trip to Santa Fe and reading up on all the cool things to do & foods to eat. Trust me, you can talk your wife into the trip by checking out all the cool things in the state.

Are you thinking about writing movie scripts again as well, Mr. Martin?
Mar. 5th, 2014 10:54 pm (UTC)
I am not opposed to the idea, but until I finish ICE & FIRE, I do not have the time.

ICE & FIRE on TV and Tales of Dunk and Egg on the big screen, that's what we want! :-)
