On August 22nd @ 7PM Thursdays at the Theatre will be showing a foreign film Clandestine Childhood a 2011 Argentine, Spanish and Brazilian film about a love story involving a boy Juan who in school is known by the name Ernesto and meets a girl Maria who has only one name. The film is set in the year 1979 in Argentina and is in Spanish but has English subtitles and a running time of 112 minutes. For those unfamiliar with Thursdays at the Theatre it is a film series presented by the Arizona Western College Foundation with the support of Historic Yuma Theatre (the venue) and the AWC Academic Library. Media partners for the program include The Yuma Sun and KAWC an NPR affiliated public radio station run through the college with ties to Yuma. Tickets to attend will be available at the door for $5 per person. AWC and NAU students though only need to pay $2.50 for their tickets when they present their student IDs. Thursdays at the Theatre sounds like a fantastic program worth supporting for bringing in independent and even foreign films in to Yuma for screening. For more information please contact The Yuma Art Center.
