Zoetropolis Theatre

Sundance begins !!

The Art House conference finished and many went home, but a few lucky ones, such as myself stayed for the start of Sundance.  I picked up my credentials (apparently owning a theatre counts as “industry”) and saw the first film.  I sat next to Tim League, the distributor that brought us “The Act of Killing”.  He was in a good mood, an Oscar nomination is a good thing. I saw “Whiplash”, written and directed by Damien Chazelle.  Miles Teller, from […]

Oscar Nominations!!!

Nominations were this morning and there were several films  seen only at Zoetropolis.  One disappointment is Robert Redford did not get nominated for “All Is Lost”.  It did show elsewhere , but for a brief time ,and we knew it was perfect for Zoe.  There is little dialogue, demanding close attention to the screen, nearly impossible when viewing at home.  He is in his seventies, and all though he was in no danger, he lost 60% of his hearing from […]

what a great day!

The final party for the Art House Convergence is still going on, but I am in my room, reflecting on a great day. The group gathers art house and festival staff from all over the US and Canada to we meet each other, as well as distributors and companies looking to help art houses run better. Because most of the theaters are far from each other, everyone shares great ideas to improve the theaters for our patrons. No competitors, colleagues. […]

Greetings from Utah!!!

Karen here I am in Utah, attending the Art House Convergence and the Sundance film festival. I will be posting as much as I can on this site. The Convergence is a gathering of art house theatres from around the country. Many are non profit, multi-screen theaters, with huge budgets and staff. However, scrappy Zoetropolis stands apart in some ways. There aren’t many that are also a gallery and yoga studio. Our non-existent front door is outweighed by our comfy […]

Changes are in the works

You may have noticed some changes in our schedule, and some errors lately. I (Karen) thought we were changing our times on Saturday as well as Sunday. I thought we were doing four shows this week, and released an email and sent the info to the papers. I was wrong. There will be three shows this week on saturday 9/21, 3:30, 6:30 and 9:00. However on Sunday 9/22, we moved up the times so our staff can get home earlier, […]

A Taste of “Somm”

Feeling a little intimidated about coming out this weekend to see “Somm,” a movie that goes inside the prestigious, exclusive, inebriated world of The Court of Master Sommeliers? No worries, we’ve got that covered with our crash course on wine, movies, and taking on the French. The movie “Bottle Shock” is the story of a couple of young, long haired, California wine makers who knocked France on its wine-judging-tush by winning a blind tasting, in Paris, in 1976.  And, we’re […]
