"I think I have paid attention to the 'extraordinary.' But in general I think it’s more interesting to recognise the interrelation of what is ordinary and what is extraordinary, rather than seeing them as two separate entities, or ways."

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.
