Opened as Collective Fantasy on June 18, 1976. It was renamed and reopened as the Trans-Lux Jean Cocteau Cinema on May 4, 1984. One of Santa Fe’s most beloved movie theatres, the Jean Cocteau Cinema was home to some of the best independent and foreign films shown on screen. Winner of the Santa Fe Reporter’s “Best of Santa Fe” for 7 years in a row (through 2005), and winner of Crosswinds Weekly’s “Best of New Mexico” for 2 years in a row! The Jean Cocteau featured a full coffee bar, with plenty of espresso and coffee drinks on the menu, as well as the best popcorn in town, topped with yeast, parmesean and other great ingredients!
The cinema closed on April 16, 2006, and there were plans proposed at that time to convert it into a cinema museum. It was purchased by a new operator and re-opened on August 9, 2013.
