This Friday (May 4) at 8:30pm, Artes de la Rosa (the resident performing and visual arts organization of the Rose Marine Theatre) offers a free outdoor screening of the award-winning 2007 drama La Misma Luna (Under the Same Moon). The movie concerns the efforts of a mother to reunite with her nine-year-old son after she comes to America illegally to work and earn money for his support. It’s safe to say: Bring plenty of hankies.
The public is invited to the May 4 showing in Mercado Plaza at the south end of the Rose Marine; there are about fifty lawn spots available and you can set up grills if you want. But Artes de la Rosa would especially like to make the screening a networking opportunity for members of the local filmmaking and theater community, so everybody come out and hobnob.
