Tarantino serves as ‘angel’ of the New Beverly
LOS ANGELES, CA — For the past few years, Quentin Tarantino has been operating as the owner of the New Beverly Cinema. This piece in the Hollywood Reporter discusses how he acquired it and how his contributions have led to a smooth running business.
The New Beverly has been the Torgan family business since 1978. But if not for the intervention of the director with the encyclopedic knowledge of film, it would be just another chain franchise.
“It was going to be turned into a Super Cuts,” Tarantino said. “I’d been coming to the New Beverly ever since I was old enough to drive there from the South Bay — since about 1982. So, I couldn’t let that happen.”
