One of New Mexico’s oldest movie theatres recently underwent a major renovation and has been given a new lease on life. Opened in 1949 and used as a movie theatre until 1982, the Totah Theatre thereafter was used as a performance theatre. In 2006, the Totah Theatre was converted into a multi-use performance hall. In 2020, San Juan County acquired, and in partnership with the City of Farmington renovated the facility to create a film center for the region.
Nice Shoes helped directors Dawn Mikkelson and Keri Pickett tell the story of the incredible women who are changing the rhythm of the male-dominated art of Taiko in the new independent documentary Finding Her Beat.

They must upgrade their facilities to encourage moviegoers to return; they must cut costs in the face of a challenging global economy; and they must do what they can to address climate change. For a long time now, Wim Buyens, CEO of Cinionic, the consortium consisting of Barco, ALPD, and CGS, has been making the case that installing laser projection addresses to all three concerns. Recent events suggest people are beginning to listen to Buyens. It has been a busy month for Cinionic.
When cinematographer Zach Kuperstein got the job to shoot writer-director Zach Cregger’s horror feature Barbarian, one of the first things he did was reach out to Light Iron senior colorist Sam Daley. The two had previously worked together on a short and three independent features — The Eyes of My Mother, The Vigil, and Paper Spiders — but their collaborations began during post, not during pre-production.
With Halloween here, many people will add some fright for fun into their plans. Watching horror movies and going to a haunted house are popular traditions. However, Kansas City's Macabre Cinema flips the switch and takes thrill seekers from watching a scary movie to being the victim in this horror flick.
