New Beverly Cinema, Los Angeles CA, 2010

Not really an art photograph; more of an attempt to make a straight-up, documentary picture of a place discovered totally by accident on the way to art photography, where L. and I later saw a terrific double bill of Cat Ballou (Jane Fonda! Nat King Cole! Lee Marvin chewing the scenery!) and Blazing Saddles. A wonderful small family-run theatre programming a mix of classics (Bresson!) exploitation-sleaze, spaghetti westerns, etc. etc. etc. Very much in the spirit of the old Vancouver East Cinema, c.1986 or so.

Apparently we're not the New Beverly's only fans.

(Also nb. film-nerd bus bench ad)
