today is Quentin Tarantinos birthday, hes 51

Quentin Tarantino and miss piggy

the fact that my mom liked Django is amazing. she hates swearing.

and the miracle that my mom liked Pulp Fiction is testament to Quentin’s genius.

he bought a movie theatre in Hollywood. a little one-screener that he used to go to when he was a kid.

they have double features there and sometimes he even shows up, because hes a movie nerd.

it’s not really talked about that much, and i wouldn’t say it’s even considered “cool”.

it just is.

if you asked most people about the New Beverly i bet they wouldnt know who owns it

and if they could even tell you where it is (on beverly) theyd probably just say

it is a simple place that plays weird movies.

new beverly

sometimes if im stuck in traffic i’ll take a picture of the marquee to research the films later

quentin got the place when news was made that it was going to shutter because the landlord wanted to tear it down and build

so he bought it and said

“As long as I’m alive, and as long as I’m rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm.”

actually cool.
