It’s a long read but one that might interest some of you. One day I’d love to open an era themed single-screen theatre. Depending on the theme (silent, musical, classic horror, grindhouse, etc.), all theatre personelle must dress and act the part. That means no talking during silent, singing during musicals, bad monster costumes during horror, grinding during grindhouse.
Wait, no, not that. This includes director and actor themes though cast will only be asked to look the part cos I’d hate to hear a bunch of bad Woody Allens.
For patrons, there would be costume contests, trivia contests, and a scavenger hunt contest for tickets and silly prizes. It will only be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. During the shows, people will have a chance to vote for the next theme via multiple choice ballots. Write ins accepted only if hilarious. The rest of the week will be classic TV shows, nickelodeons, news reals, propaganda films, and cartoons circa 90s and back.
Sunday will feature independent films with the last Sunday of the month featuring local filmmaker’s short films. In the lobby there would be local art and crafts displayed with sparkling cider, fruit, and cheese to munch on.
There’s an old abandoned porno theatre in La Puente made from an old bunker that’d be a perfect low-cost starter location. After getting everything sanitized by a flamethrower and changing the interior and having a local priest bless the building I’m sure I can work magic in there! And yes, there will be a parody video of the renovation progress shot WWII style newsreels.
I’ll tell you what was cute, the other day there was no room on the street to walk so a couple holding hands lifted them upwards and made a tunnel for me to walk through.
(I would have liked to crop some of these gifs (like the accent ones) to make them more accurate but alas, I lack the skills.)
THE GLISSANDO ONE THO
You guys, when I die please show this to my family and friends so they may laugh with me from beyond this world!
