Are We There Yet?

Ever since I moved to Los Angeles, the New Beverly Cinema has been one of my favorite hangouts.  In a world where revival houses are dying, the New Beverly could be counted on to have great double features of classics and rarities.

And since Quentin Tarantino refurbished it a few years back, it's only gotten better.  The tickets and refreshments are cheap, and QT shows stuff, I believe, from his private stash.  Films (only films, no video) from the last few decades of the 20th century (whereas the old New Bev mostly showed stuff from the middle of the century).

However, since the beginning of the year, the theatre has been closed for repairs.  While I am happy to know they're trying to improve it, it's been over two months already.  I pass by the theatre in my car pretty regularly, and look up to see if there are any titles on the marquee.  How much longer can this go on?  I know QT has been having problems of his own lately, but let's start with the movies already.
