Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin’s “Jean Cocteau Cinema” originally opened as the Collective Fantasy Cinema in 1976. Brent Kliewer, programmer for the Collective Fantasy, bought the theatre in 1983 and renamed it the Jean Cocteau Cinema in reverence to the French filmmaker and artist. In 1986, Kliewer sold it to Blue Pearl Corporation.

Later in 1989, Trans-Lux Corporation purchased the venue and ran the cinema, which at the time had a single screen and 120 seats. Seventeen years later, the Jean Cocteau Cinema closed in April 2006. The state of New Mexico used the opportunity to lease the second floor offices of the building and planned to create the cinema below as the official home for the state film office. The state developed plans to make the main hall auditorium into a film museum, however, the funding for that project never came to fruition and the film office left the offices and cinema in 2010. During that time, Trans-Lux still owned the cinema, which unfortunately stood vacant until it was purchased by Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin. After renovations and upgrades, the Jean Cocteau Cinema reopened the theatre doors on August 9, 2013.

Now, the cinema has 126 seats in the main hall auditorium and a separate VIP booth with seating for 4. With 130 seats, a single screen, and the best popcorn in town, the Jean Cocteau Cinema prides itself on becoming Santa Fe’s most eclectic movie house. The cinema continues to show film on both 35 mm and digital, combining the best of both old and new!

In addition to showing films, the Jean Cocteau Cinema hosts a variety of events such as live music events, author events, magicians, etc. The theater also serves drinks from our full liquor licensed bar, and sells ONLY signed books and merchandise from the in-house bookstore. You don’t want to miss out – we are your hometown theater!
