OCTOBER 2013

Explore the Culture @SLFS MARCUS SALEM , Tower Theatre Manager How long have you worked here?

Any cool facts about The Tower you want to share?

Have you always been interested in film?

Thoughts, feelings, opinions on digital conversion?

Roughly five years, started as a volunteer for four months, working for free, then hired on as a runner, then worked my way to the top!

A few moments with

Yes. [Long pause] One of my earliest memories of film was sitting and watching The Gold Rush on a 16mm print when I was in grade school.

MARCUS

Favorite thing about working here?

Fixing up the venue, first of all, making the Tower look better, because when I first came here it was a sad state of affairs. But it’s also bringing films to people who would not have found them on their own. Like walking them over and saying “This is one of my favorite movies.” And they’re like, “Well I’ve never heard of it before.” And then they come back and say “I loved it, what else did this guy do?”

by Annie Jenkins

What would you want people to take away from their experience at Broadway or Tower?

Whatever they left behind. [Laughs] I want them to leave with an appreciation with the art itself, of cinema. That it’s more than just a movie, it can be an experience. That it can evoke an emotion that they didn’t think could otherwise be reached.

What are your hopes for SLFS?

To fully live up to our potential, and stand by our mission statement and follow through with every word of it. And that we can truly do what we set out to do which is to bring art and cinema to the masses and to educate people and to be able to do it without running ourselves ragged.

Yeah, the Tower Theatre opened January 10, 1928. It’s been here for 86 years and it’s always been a movie theater and there’s not a lot of places in Utah that can say that.

Torn. Sad. Happy. As much as I hate that film is dying, I’m resigned to the fact that it is and that nothing is going to save it or bring it back, much like artists felt in the 20s when film moved from silent to sound and they hated it. We’re resigned to it; things change. So the sadness obviously lies in the death of film, but happiness comes in knowing that we’re now converting to a format that’s competitive with other theaters and what customers have come to expect from a digital cinema. We’ll be able to offer everyone a full cinematic experience.

What are your hobbies; what do you do for fun?

Long walks on the beach, staring at sunsets, playing acoustic guitar. I own six guitars and a ukulele. I have a keyboard too. I like music.

What is your favorite movie and why?

My favorite silent feature is The Gold Rush because it’s the first movie that I remember seeing as a child. I wanted to imitate Charlie Chaplin and I’ve seen it more than any other silent film. My favorite talking picture is It Happened One Night by Frank Capra . . . [Interviewer questions his taste; Marcus continues with more enthusiasm than before] . . . which was an amazing picture that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences dubbed the best feature of 1934. [The U.S. Mail carrier comes in.] Even the mail lady would agree with that!
