The New Mexico Film Series continues at KiMo Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 28, with a screening of the shot-in-our-state Western 3:10 to Yuma. The 2007 film stars Russell Crowe and Christian Bale and is a remake of the 1957 film starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin. Both versions are based on the same Elmore Leonard short story about a rancher who agrees to hold a captured outlaw until the titular train arrives. Among the local locations used were the Santa Fe National Forest, Ghost Ranch, Diablo Canyon and the Bonanza Creek Ranch. The New Mexico Film Series is a continuing celebration of New Mexico’s centennial. Admission to the screening is free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film starts at 7 p.m.

Movies and a Mocha Latte

If you haven’t had the chance to check it out, the newly revived and revamped Fans of Film Cinema Café & Coffee House has entered its second month of operation. The business is located at 504 Yale SE, one block from CNM. It’s open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. While the space operates as a traditional café—featuring coffee from Michael Thomas Roasters, not to mention burritos and pastries from Chocolate Maven—its grassroots mission is to support the arts in general and local filmmakers in particular. The business grew out of founder Michael Palombo’s Twitter account, Fans of Film, a longtime local repository for indie filmmaking info. Capitalizing on his social media skills, Palombo has created a word-of-mouth gallery space for visual artists and a screening place for Albuquerque filmmakers to showcase their work. The innovative café-meets-microcinema has even partnered up with Burning Paradise Video—Albuquerque’s sadly shuttered indie video store—in hopes of premiering as many local indie shorts, documentaries and features as possible. Here’s hoping the idea bears fruit.
