Don’t expect a camp bitchfest from Ed Wood, even if it is a biopic about a cross-dressing Hollywood filmmaker – he relishes fluffy Angora sweaters and strappy high heels – with an unrivaled reputation for making cut-rate crap. Director Tim Burton, a former Disney animator with a famous sympathy for freaks ( Batman, Beetlejuice, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Edward Scissorhands ), doesn’t do the expected.

Ultimately Tarantino bought the building and now he’s taking over the whole theater from Torgan’s son Michael. Tarantino has grand plans to curate a program of films he is confident will please fellow cinefiles and give him an excuse to showcase his voluminous collection of film prints and trailers.
