With his numerous homages and references to the classic films of the past, fans of Quentin Tarantino have long viewed him as a savior of cinema. Now he's earning the title in a very literal fashion.

That's because, as reported in the Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino has intervened in a real estate dispute between the beloved Los Angeles institution New Beverly Cinema and their landlord, rescuing the theater from imminent eviction by purchasing the building himself in order to ensure that fans of cinema will continue to have a venue to view classic movies on the big screen.

"It was going to be turned into a Super Cuts," Tarantino said. "I'd been coming to the New Beverly ever since I was old enough to drive there from the South Bay -- since about 1982. So, I couldn't let that happen."
