I’m 59. I spent my teenage years in Venice. The Venice Fox was one of my favorite theatres. It had a separate room in the back for mothers with babies. I saw “Westside Story” there. It seems like a lot of well heeled intellectuals live nearby now. They should restore it somehow. It should be designated a historical landmark. It could be made the focal point of an upscale shopping experience.
When I was a kid, my father took me to the Aero to see his favorite actress Ingrid Bergman. Lucky for me he was mistaken. It turned out to be an Inmar Bergman film, “The Magician”. It was a double bill. I got to see “Seven Samurai”. But “The Magician” was too dark a tale for my father. He made us walk out on it. I went to see “The Magician” at the Nuart theatre in Santa Monica later on when I was a teenager. It is one of my favorite movies.
