Madstone Albuquerque, R.I.P.

Tis a remorseful day in Albuquerque.

Remorseful, because we didn't support the Madstone enough with our ticket dollars. However, an artsy fartsy 8-plex is up against it in this town. There simply aren't enough film freaks with enough disposable income to keep such a venture afloat.

I'll always remember a visit to the Madstone last fall. It was prime movie time Friday night. But after we got in I needed to recheck that the place was open. Lucy and I were almost the only people there. The showing we attended had us -- and two other viewers.

We saw a few nice flicks there: Girl with a Pearl Earring; The Triplets of Belleville; Battle of Shaker Heights; and Piņero a couple of years ago. Piñero was intense. I'd like to watch the dvd and comment on it here.

Albuquerque is obviously folding up in response to our move. Look for a Madstone in Lawrence, KS.
