The Classic Mexican Movie Festival paying homage to the movies of Emilio Fernandez and Gabriel Figueroa, figures from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, will run Thursday through June 3 at the Historic Yuma Theatre, 254 S. Main St.

Selected films will be shown at 5 p.m. with free admission. A film will be shown every Thursday in Spanish with English subtitles.

The festival is part of the efforts of the Mexican Consulate in Yuma and the Cultural Council of Yuma to mark the bicentennial celebration of Mexico’s independence and the centennial of the Mexican revolution.

The series is being called “The Mexico of Emilio Fernandez and Gabriel Figueroa” and will include five of what are considered the most important films of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema” by Fernandez (1904-1986), a Mexican actor, screenwriter and director, and Figueroa (1907-1997), a cinematographer.

The movies will offer a “sample of the important contributions of these two icons to Mexico’s film industry,” according to organizers.

For more information, contact the Mexican Consulate in Yuma at 343-0066 or 343-9699 or the Cultural Council of Yuma, 783-2423, culturalcouncil@mindspring.com or www.ccyum.org.

    Downloading all the best free movies seems to be the talk of the town these days. It appears like everyone is interested in getting their hands on the latest movie downloads but as odd as it seems, many people don’t know how to download
