“As long as I’m alive, and as long as I’m rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm,” Tarantino said. (from The Hollywood Reporter)

He’d already been paying the rent for some time, then just bought the place outright to keep the family-run place going. I’ve bashed his last few movies, but have to give the man credit for walking the walk. You don’t see Paul McCartney taking out his ludicrously giant wallet to save Abbey Road.

  1. That’s mighty white of him.

    I wonder if he will move his QT Fest from Austin to that cinema. It’d be closer to home and he could do them more regularly.

  2. No, but you do see a man who’s been recently battling cancer come forward, crack open the vault and throw cash at Abby Road despite his love of theatre and operas.
