Ready to Join?

Come and join us watching a Spanish comedy-drama film directed by Carlos Saura and awarded with 15 Goya awards and 3 European film awards.

Carmela (Carmen Maura) and Paulino (Andrés Pajares) are entertainers during the Spanish Civil War. They travel the country with their young, mute sidekick, Gustavete (Gabino Diego), and perform for the Republican troops. They're also fiery patriots, which puts them in danger when they're captured by Franco's soldiers during their tour. But instead of death, they're sentenced to perform for their enemy, putting their loyalty on the line in the face of survival.

The film would be in Spanish, perfect for those who want to practice their Spanish.

At the end of the film, it will be some snacks and drinks at a very reasonable price.

Happy holidays and best wishes for the coming year!
