Stay Current with the Pick of the Day: CineFestival
CineFestival’s second week is even stronger than the first one. It’s hard to name only one pick, so here’s a quick heads-up: Mexican comedy genius Tin-Tan (Germán Valdés, who was to Cantinflas what Keaton was to Chaplin) stars in El Rey del Barrio (The King of the Neighborhood, 1950) arguably his best film, in a free 9:30 a.m. screening for seniors; Best Documentary winner Tales of Masked Men (pictured) screens 7 p.m. Friday, March 1; and the awards ceremony starts 6 p.m. on Saturday March 2. One of the awarded films is Best Short winner (and Ray Santisteban-directed) Have you Seen Marie? about the making of Sandra Cisneros’ latest book. But these are just my personal picks. Check out the Guadalupe’s schedule and pick your own – there’s something for everyone. $8-$12, Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe, (210) 271-3151, guadalupeculturalarts.org.
