George R.R. Martin, a Santa Fe resident who authored the celebrated fantasy novels on which the HBO series Game of Thrones is based, has purchased the defunct Jean Cocteau Cinema on Montezuma Avenue in the Santa Fe Railyard.

A newly formed New Mexico limited liability corporation called The Faceless Man closed on the purchase in late February, according to documents filed with the Santa Fe County Clerk.

    Goddamn. Having read the first four books while working there seems a little eerie now.

    The Ring Trilogy wasn't written as a trilogy. Tolkien wrote it as a single book and his publisher insisted on breaking it up into 3 books.

    Martin did say that the final volumes of ASOIAF were coming soon, and he's been saying that for years.

    At some point, shouldn't the readers who've bought the first four books in the series based on the promise that the concluding volumes were forthcoming have the right to at least complain that Martin hasn't yet finished it, like he said he would?

    I wonder how we'd view Tolkien if he'd ended "The Return of the King" halfway through and then just never got around to publishing the end?

    He doesn't owe you anything. He'll write the books when he wants to. You've got an overdeveloped sense of entitlement going there.

    And I'm happy to see that the Jean Cocteau now has a future.

    Guy needs to be locked in his house with a computer and no internet until ASOIAF is done

    No, no it's not. It was run by a ratbox for awhile. Big difference.

    Considering I ran this theater for ten years of my life, I feel that Martin should be in touch with me about the future of this building :)

    BTW, the theater has 127 seats. I know this because I filled each one for years with patrons. Our longest running film was Amelie, running for five months and two weeks. I spent most of my young life in this theater, tweaking the projector and sound, and serving really good popcorn with my staff.

    I also have a screenplay in the works about this theater.
