Letter To The Editor: Already Missing Reel Deal

Maureen Lunn
Los Alamos

I want to echo others in saying that we will deeply miss the Reel Deal theater, not only for having a fun movie-going experience in Los Alamos, but for the kindness and happiness that the staff and space brought.

From the butterfly carpet to the tie-dyed beanie baby on the ticket stand to the zany local pre-movie commercials and more, the space was so sweet, and the staff was always so welcoming.

Letter To The Editor: My Heart Is Broken Reel Deal Is Closing

By FRED and ZENA THOMAS
Los Alamos

I am sure I won’t be the only one saying this, but my heart is broken that the Reel Deal is closing.  

The Reel Deal was one of the LA institutions that I would lift up as to why we live here. We patronized you’re establishment often, but unfortunately perhaps not often enough.

Thank you for the many good movies and for serving this community.

We will dearly miss you.

The Reel Deal Theater Is Closing

By Jim O’Donnell and the Deal Family:

The first time I cried was up in the projection room several weeks ago. I was up there doing some routine stuff with the hum of the projectors keeping me company.

Our big feature digital projectors are normally kept on stand-by, day and night, waiting to be brought to life for our next showing. They never had to wait long to deliver their magic to our patrons as we’ve been open every showtime, 365 days a year for the past 16 years.

We opened in December of 2003; it was Xmas and we opened with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I remember looking down from the projection booth
