3 blocks for the Plaza but a World AwayMy first experience at the Lensic was a free HBO and Santa Fe Independent Film Festival sponsored screening of the excellent documentary film "Casting By". About the unheralded role casting directors play in the creation of film and television, I can't think of a more fitting introduction to the Lensic Performing Arts Center. A 1930's "silver screen" theater built for the city at the beginning of the Great Depression, it was restored in 2001 and now hosts all manner of arts events inside its otherworldly glowing Moorish walls.
