Spanish Shuffle—Due to scheduling conflicts, the lineup of films at the National Hispanic Cultural Center's Spanish Civil War film series has been altered slightly. Instead of starting on March 2, the films will kick off Thursday, March 23, with Julio Medem's Vacas. The series will continue April 6 with Fernando Trueba's Belle Epoque and April 20 with Jose Luis Cerda's La Lengua de las Mariposas. All films are in Spanish with English subtitles. The film screenings are scheduled to run at least twice a month through June 8. For more info, log on to or contact the Spanish Resource Center at 246-2261 ext. 125.

More Femininos—Speaking of the Hispanic Cultural Center, the Cortes Femininos film series continues this Thursday, March 16, with a collection of female-centric short films. All films are presented in Spanish with English subtitles. Films for this go-around include David Planell's “Carisma/Charisma,” Rocío Huertas' “Los Desheredados/The Forgotten,” Sara Mazkiaran's “La Llorona/Weeping Woman” and Marisa Lafuente's “Platicando/Chatting.” This screening is free and open to the public. Cortes Femininos gets underway at 7 p.m. at the NHCC's Bank of America Theatre (1701 Fourth Street SW).

Loca Time—Gorilla Tango Comedy Theatre's Monthly Cinema Loca series returns like clockwork on Friday, March 17. Cinema Loca features classic (well, not really) public domain films dubbed by a team of improvisational actors. Sounds, songs, dialogue and stories are completely made up on the spot. Films are never announced in advance (so as to keep the performers in the dark), but past Cinema Loca films have included Reefer Madness, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, The Beatniks and Teenagers from Outer Space. Tickets are $8 and are available at the box office (519 Central NW) or online ( The show starts at 10 p.m. and usually ends up being rated R. (Cover your ears, kids!)

Local Premiere--How would you like to attend the world premiere of a locally shot feature film? This Saturday night, March 18, Gorilla Tango Comedy Theatre will host the debut screening of N.M. filmmaker Chris Garcia's romantic comedy Mismatch.Com. The mockumentary-style film follows the misadventures of a couple who have met on the Internet and decide to hook up for a very odd first date. The film stars Curt Fletcher, Angela Gurule, Mark Otero, Ric Smith and Erik Solis. The screening will take place at 10 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the Gorilla Tango box office (519 Central NW). Come support your local filmmakers and have a laugh in the process!
