Even though I'm going a little nuts getting ready for the trip to Australia and New Zealand, my crack team at the Jean Cocteau is carrying on as usual.
THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS and ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW wrap up today, so if you've been meaning to see those, this is your last chance. We're holding over THE WICKER MAN for another week. We're also holding over ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN for two more weekend matinees, since Bud and Lou and the monsters have been filling the hall. Kids under twelve STILL free for Abbott & Costello.
And we have some cool stuff coming up tonight for Halloween — in cooperation with the Santa Fe Film Festival, we're screening a restored 3D print of the Vincent Price horror classic, HOUSE OF WAX, one night only, and starting a late night run of (yes!) THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. Costume contests for both, with prizes.
Two new movies debut tomorrow, one old and one new. The new film is a quirky new SF movie from Magnolia called MR. NOBODY. Take a look:

The old film is an indy classic, KING OF HEARTS, where the inmates really do take over the asylum. Like this:

Seeing as how I'm plugging our coming attractions, I want to mention one more for all my gamer friends, since I'll be travelling in Australia when it screens and might not get to mention it elsewise. Starting on Friday, November 8, we will be showing the RPG dramedy ZERO CHARISMA:

We're going to be offering a special 1d6 discount on all ZERO CHARISMA admissions. That's right. We'll have a six-sided die at the Cocteau box office, so when you turn up for the movie, ask for a roll, and you'll get somewhere between one buck and six bucks off the cost of admission… depending, of course, on how well you roll. (We did consider using a d20, but then we would have ended up owing YOU money).
See you at the movies.
