Laredo Film Festival

The historic La Posada Hotel is hosting a film festival as we speak and ending Wednesday.  The works of Julio Bracho will be showcased.  The public is encouraged to attend this free offering.

The movies are being billed as Mexican cinematic works from The Golden Era.

How appropriate it would be to show these films at a former Laredo theater that once had its heyday in a neighborhood that shared its name:  El Azteca.

El Azteca theater (pictured), sadly, is now used as storage space.

UPDATE: April 21, 2019  EASTER SUNDAY!!!

I took a Google Maps screen grab of the corner building, the one that was next to the Azteca Theater. (Notice the uneven telephone lines?)

On March 26 I snapped a photo of what is now a parking lot.  We can now see the side of the historic theater.
