Breaking Bad Fest

Never say die to the folks behind the upcoming Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest. Like the Kingpin and his devoted protégé, Miguel Jaramillo and Jennie Rexer are on a quest, a quest to bring the Breaking Bad universe what it truly needs to thrive – and that is a place to convene, revel and rejoice in all the splendor that is Breaking Bad mania.

And unlike any old venue or setting that may house masses for weekend or week-long festivities, such as Star-trek conventions, or general comic festivals, the ALBUQUERQUE BREAKING BAD FAN FEST will take place in the home of Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece.

That’s right, the happy accident that led to Albuquerque becoming a “central character” in the show, leads all roads back to the ultimate Breaking Bad mecca – the only place in the world where tourists from all over the globe can regularly be seen snapping pics at the John B. Robert dam, sitting in a booth at Twisters, in front of Octopus Car Wash, in front of the “White House”, even touring around the city just like the stars!

Come November 2014 these “Baddies” and many more can make the most out of their fandom at the ultimate “on location” fan fest.

“We’re happy to announce plans for an Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest are moving forward! We were unable to reach our Kickstarter goal, but the Fest will go on! Please stay tuned for more info on this page and www.ABQBreakingBadFest.com. Save the date: November 7th & 8th, 2014!”

THE ALBUQUERQUE MUSEUM PRESENTS: EVERYBODY’S NEIGHBOR: VIVIAN VANCE

Posted by on March 18, 2014 | Comments Off

Vivian Vance exhibit in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, NM– So many of us grew up watching I Love Lucy throughout the years, and we probably do our best to catch re-runs on TV whenever we get the chance. There is something about the nostalgia of it all that proves irresistible. But I bet that most of us never knew that one of this famous TV show’s beloved stars was actually an Albuquerque talent.

Everybody’s Neighbor: Vivian Vance features the history and popular culture of vaudeville star and actress Vivian Vance, who appeared regularly at Albuquerque Little Theater (ALT) and the KiMo. Vance, who spent part of her young adult life in Albuquerque, eventually won her most endearing role as Ethel Mertz on the TV situation comedy, I Love Lucy. The exhibition will be on view at the Albuquerque Museum from March 29, 2014 – January 31, 2015.

Vivian Roberta Jones, known as “Viv” to her friends and family, was born in 1909 in Cherryvale, Kansas. As a teenager she decided to pursue acting career, against the wishes of her religious mother, Mae. Vivian’s large family eventually moved to Albuquerque and Vivian and her husband Joe Danneck joined the Joneses. She found a job modeling clothes, but in 1930 she defiantly announced that she had landed a role in the racy vaudeville show, Cushman’s Revue, playing at the KiMo Theater. She traveled with the show, then returned to Albuquerque.

Under the guidance of ALT director Kathryn Kennedy O’Connor, Vivian appeared in the theater’s first two seasons. Convinced that she had potential, O’Connor and the theatre held a benefit in 1932 by selling tickets to The Trial of Mary Dugan. Critics raved, writing, “Whether Vivian Vance can make good in New York will be decided next month, but the Albuquerque actress…showed that she can make good before a hometown audience.” With the proceeds, O’Connor sent Vivian to New York to study under actress Eva Le Gallienne.

Soon Vivian started landing chorus roles, eventually graduating to supporting roles in Hooray for What! and Let’s Face it! with Danny Kaye and Eve Arden. In between productions Vivian returned to Albuquerque. Vivian always felt that she owed a debt of gratitude to the people of Albuquerque for supporting her early career, and returned often to appear at the ALT free of charge. By the early 1940s, Vivian was living in New York but had also purchased a small adobe ranch house in Cubero, west of Albuquerque near Grants.

Vivian then moved to California to work on film and theatre projects. While visiting the La Jolla Playhouse in 1951, Desilu Studios producer Desi Arnaz watched Vivian’s amazing performance as Olive Lashbrook in Voice of the Turtle. Convinced that she was perfect for the role of Ethel Mertz in I Love Lucy, Desi Arnaz brought Vivian into the studio for a surprise introduction to his wife and star of the show, Lucille Ball. Because of Vivian’s good looks, impeccable comedic timing and a street-smart sense of how to play to an audience, she shined throughout the run of I Love Lucy. The 1953 episodes brought her an Emmy® Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, with additional nominations in 1954, 1956, and 1957.

I Love Lucy secured Vivian Vance’s place in television history. After a wondrous career in theater, film and television, the accomplished actress passed away in 1979. Many of her family members still live in New Mexico, and her sister Lou Ann holds local comedy workshops. Their stories, awards, photographs, and memorabilia contribute greatly to the exhibition, celebrating a small-town girl who hit the big-time.

Historic New Mexico Film – Salt of the Earth 60th Anniversary

Posted by on February 12, 2014 | Comments Off

Book your room at the famous Murray Hotel in Silver City, NM by Thursday February 13, 2014 for a special Salt of the Earth anniversary release rate!

Call 575-956-9400 now!

12x18 SOTE March 15-Flyer copy

Silver City, New Mexico – Women run over, kids hurling stones – in the Mideast? No, Grant Co. NM, 1951 – Fallout of the eventually victorious strike by the Ladies Auxiliary Local 890 which inspired the historic labor film, “Salt of the Earth”.

On Saturday March 15, 2014 The Real Miners of United Steel Workers District 12, “Salt of the Earth” Era Elders, AFSCME, and IATSE Film Workers Union, invite one and all to Silver City, New Mexico for the 60th anniversary of the “Salt of the Earth” film release – in recognition, celebration, and in the name of the continued struggle for justice for the American worker.

“Salt of the Earth” is based on the 1951 strike against the Empire Zinc Mine in New Mexico involving Mexican-American workers, who struck to attain wage equality with Anglo workers in other mines and to be treated with dignity by management. “When an injunction prohibited [the miners] from picketing, the women – wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters – took the workers’ place on the line.”

Blacklisted for many years as being too inflammatory in exposing issues the Federal Government wanted suppressed, “Salt of the Earth” provides a moving example of community solidarity and the pivotal role of women in traditional families as well as their value in the workplace. The film was written, directed and produced by members of the original “Hollywood Ten,” who were blacklisted for refusing to answer Congressional inquiries on First Amendment grounds.

New Mexico Film Industry Town Hall Meeting in Silver City

Posted by on November 4, 2013 | Comments Off

Silver City New Mexico Film Industry Town Hall Meeting

The New Mexico State Film Office (NMFO) will host a Town Hall meeting in Silver City on Wednesday, November 13, 2013. This Town Hall follows a series of Town Hall meetings that took place in Las Cruces, Ruidoso, Roswell, Raton, Clovis and Carlsbad. Film Office Director Nick Maniatis will discuss the state of the film industry including future productions and opportunities available to New Mexico residents. The meetings are intended to provide an open forum for each community to share information about local activity such as educational programs and film related business as well as relaying any issues of concern.

Prior to each Town Hall meeting, participants will have an opportunity to have their headshot (photograph) taken by a representative of the film office which will be given to Extras Casting Directors in New Mexico. This opportunity is for informational purposes only and is not in response to a particular production.

The Silver City Town Hall will be held at the historic Silco Theater and will celebrate the first lighting of the recently installed marquee. The Silco Theater was built in 1923 and served Silver City for many years as a performance and movie theater. In January 2006, the Silver City MainStreet Project re-opened the theater and funds are now being raised to renovate the space into a movie theater again.

Following the Town Hall there will be a special screening of The Making of a Marquee (TRT – 15 minutes). This short documentary provides a brief history of the efforts leading to the installation of the Silver City MainStreet Project’s new Silco Theater marquee.

The Town Halls are free and open to all, including students, local filmmakers, businesses and the general public. The New Mexico State Film Office collaborates with local film liaisons, schools and chambers of commerce in conducting these events.
