SANTA ANA, CA, February 11, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Logan Crow has been inducted into Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Supported by more than a decade of professional experience, Mr. Crow has distinguished himself as the founder and the executive director of The Frida Cinema, founded in 2014 as Orange County, CA's sole non-profit art house cinema, dedicated to the mission of enriching, connecting, and educating communities through the art of cinema. Prior to establishing this cultural institution, Crow founded the non-profit Long Beach Cinematheque and annual community event, Long Beach Zombie Walk, both in 2009, and prior to this flourished as the founder, CEO, and head writer of MondoCelluloid.com from 2007 to 2013.
A civically-engaged community leader, Mr. Crow is the co-founder of the Cultural Alliance of Long Beach, and a former board member of Santa Ana's Downtown Inc. A graduate of both the Leadership Long Beach program and The Non Profit Partnership's Emerging Leaders program, Crow contributes frequently as a speaker in the fields of both non-profit leadership and civic engagement with a plethora of knowledge at his disposal.
As a testament to his success and longevity in his profession, Mr. Crow was chosen for inclusion in the Long Beach Post's inaugural "40 Under 40" list of Long Beach community leaders in 2012, and his cinema was recognized as one of the 100 Top Independent Businesses in the U.S. by Yelp in 2016. A recipient of the Best Theatre in Orange County Award by several local publications, The Frida Cinema was further recognized by OC Weekly as the Best Independent Theater in Orange County and the Reader's Choice Winner for the Best Indie Movie Theatre in Orange County. Interested in movies since he was a child, and a lifelong independent theater aficionado, he later attended film programs in Los Angeles and Long Beach, CA. During this time, Mr. Crow volunteered at the Egyptian Theatre, an experience he credits for inspiring him to later establish The Frida Cinema.
Combining his passions for creativity, cinema arts and community building, Mr. Crow developed The Frida Cinema as both a community hub and a mission-driven cultural center. More than just a theater, The Frida Cinema meets its mission daily by presenting dozens of films a month that are carefully curated to offer a wide range of genres, with a focus on foreign, avant-garde, cult, horror, LGBT, revival, documentary, and animated films; by complementing their cinematic offerings with other artistic experiences such as concerts, discussions, art shows, film festivals, overnight marathons, and interactive film screenings; and by collaborating with local arts and education organizations both within and beyond their walls. Looking toward the future, Mr. Crow intends to focus on creative pursuits such as attending and reviewing film festivals, creative writing, and music composition.
