PS: REEL NEW MEXICO
Let us know if you'll be attending this month's REEL NEW MEXICO screening of “City Slickers” on Thursday, October 13 at the La Tienda Performance Space in Eldorado. The 1991 comedy was filmed partially in New Mexico, in and around Abiquiu, Santa Fe, and the Santa Clara and Nambe Pueblos. City Slickers blends sight gags, one-liners, and sincerity, with both humor and drama arising from the characters and their situations. Mitch (Billy Crystal) is a radio station sales executive who finds himself in the throes of a mid-life crisis; accompanied by two friends, Phil (Daniel Stern) and Ed (Bruno Kirby) in the grip of similar problems, he heads to New Mexico for his birthday to participate in a two-week “vacation” cattle drive to Colorado. Reel New Mexico is the state’s only ongoing film series that showcases New Mexico made movies. There is a suggested donation of $5 and you can bring food and beverage into the performance space from our great neighbors at the La Plancha Restaurant, right across the hall. For more information, please call 466.1634. We rely on your support to keep this series going! (Enter through the La Plancha Restaurant entrance, then turn left through the doors.) You may also grab a delicious dinner at the Oasis Cafe at La Tienda in the next building and/or a beer at the Santa Fe Brewing Co. Taproom to enjoy while you watch the film, if you arrive at 6pm. It's a fun night, so definitely let us know if you're going ahead of time and we'll meet you for dinner or a beer!
