Red Sky (at Night)

Richard Bradford’s 1968 coming-of-age novel Red Sky at Morning is something of a New Mexico classic, relating the story of a young man whose family relocates from bustling Mobile, Ala. to tiny Corazon Sagrado, N.M. during World War II. The book was turned into a film in 1971 starring Richard Thomas, Catherine Burns and Desi Arnaz Jr. It was shot in the towns of Lamy and Truchas. On Thursday, Feb. 15 the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Bank of America Theatre celebrates this piece of local history with a screening of the film. This is presented as part of the theater’s Free Thursday Film Series. Seating is limited, of course. (The theater’s recent screening of Bless Me, Ultima was jam-packed.) You can pick up your free tickets at the box office (1701 Fourth Street NW) one hour before showtime (which starts at 7pm).
