“Is Caffe 608 in trouble?” revisited.

A year and a half ago I wondered whether Caffe 608 in Sundance Cinema was in danger of closing.  I came in this morning after an absence of about six months only to find that they’re no longer selling their delicious breakfast sandwiches, and that the formerly all-arthouse multiplex is now showing Angels and Demons and The Hangover alongside the usual Sundanciana like The Brothers Bloom and The Lemon Tree. This actually makes me feel better, not worse, about their prospects.  If Angels and Demons keeps the place afloat, then bring on Angels and Demons.  I hope it’s a really massive hit and they bring the breakfast sandwiches back.

Is Caffe 608 in trouble?

I hope not: I like working here, drinking coffee here, and blogging here, all of which I’ve been doing in various measures this morning. But the hours were recently shortened, the staffing appears to have gotten thinner, and today the coffee prices have been slightly raised. Not signs they’re doing a bang-up business. So if you’ve been meaning to see some movies here but never get around to it, I encourage you to get over here and spend your money now — unless you want me to have to find another new coffeeshop to do math in.

Playing now: Control, the well-reviewed Ian Curtis biopic.
