A Rare Treat

 I've missed some great films at the Cocteau these past two months while I've been globehopping.

 But I'm home now, and we have some terrific offerings coming up at Santa Fe's hometown movie theatre in the weeks to come...  starting this Sunday, when we'll be screening Richard Donner's LADYHAWKE.   Not only one of the greatest fantasy films ever made (ignore that bloody soundtrack please), but one of the great romances as well.



 And for all the fans and cinephiles and aspiring screenwriters out there, we have a very special treat:  LADYHAWKE will be introduced by Santa Fe's own ED KHMURA, the film's screenwriter, who will talk about how the movie came to be, and the challenges of making it.

LADYHAWKE will screen on Sunday, starting at 6:30.

Come join Ed and me and Melinda Snodgrass, and (on the silver screen) Michelle Pfeiffer, Rutger Hauer, and Matthew Broderick,  sample a great fantasy, and enjoy one of our specialty cocktails and New Mexico's best popcorn at the Jean Cocteau.

I love Ladyhawke. I actually always felt the soundtrack gave it that 80's cult off beat feeling. It was recently aired on a cable channel where I watched it and was reminded how much I love it. I wish I could go to the cocteau to enjoy a viewing near my house. Back in the 90's before Chelsea piers was what it is today in Chelsea Manhattan, my local video store would gather local vendors funds and supply viewings of older films summer Friday nights for the neighborhood on the barge (which is a fancy restaurant now). We'd all bring blankets, wine and food and often sing along to West Side story, or laugh at silly sleeper films. It was really the best. Though I haven't been to the Cocteau (yet), I get the feeling it has that community unassuming atmosphere so rare to find these days.
