Author: Logan Crow

Logan Crow founded The Frida Cinema in February 2014, and serves as our Executive Director. A life-long cinema enthusiast, Logan has a 25+ year history working in and around the artform he loves, from his early days volunteering at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater, to his formation of bygone L.A.-based cult cinema website and non-profit organization Long Beach Cinematheque. Crow is also passionate about special events as a means of bringing communities together to enjoy enriching and inspiring experiences, and in that effort founded Halloween-season community event Long Beach Zombie Walk, and continues to produce outdoor and drive-in screenings throughout Southern California. Aside from his work co-programming and developing The Frida, Logan currently serves on the boards of OC Pride and ArtsOC, and spends much of his free time watching, discussing, and writing about movies.
