Speakeasy reopening with "Son of the Bride’

Kimberly Nicoletti

BRECKENRIDGE – The Speakeasy Movie Theatre has a new co-owner, and he’s spicing up the already alternative and artsy theater.

Guy Natanel grew up in Israel, guiding six-day camel tours through the desert. He has toured South America and eastern Europe by bicycle and toured the United States at age 22. He moved to Summit County two years ago to live near his girlfriend. He not only fell in love with her, but also with the Speakeasy.

“It showed movies exactly my style, more independent and artistic,” Natanel said. “I saw almost every movie they showed.”

When one co-owner moved back East after a skiing injury and decided to sell his share, Natanel seized the opportunity and bought his share.

“It always was in the back of my head,” he said. “I thought, “Since I go here every week anyway, I might as well own it.’ I’m kind of a live-by-the-day kind of guy. Something feels right and I go and do it.”

He enjoys bringing meaningful films to Summit County.

“You see a movie here, and you come out and something is different. You look at life or an aspect of life differently. You’ve gained something,” he said.

Natanel chose “Son of the Bride,” an Argentinean movie, for tonight’s opening celebration. The first showing of “Son of the Bride,” rated R, begins at 6 p.m. From 8-9 p.m. Natanel and Mike Anderson will serve hors d’oeuvres from Giampietro’s and sushi prepared by Julie Howard while belly dancers perform. The second showing will be at 9 p.m. Between shows, guests also may view a display of watercolors and mixed media by Caroline Grubbe and Kate Kiesler.

Tickets are $12 at the door. Proceeds benefit the Avon Breast Cancer three-day walk from Boulder to Denver. Personal donations for the walk also will be accepted. For information, call (970) 453-7243.
