Classic Mexican Cinema for your Valentine

Like Water for Chocolate......Miramax Films

“Like Water for Chocolate” Contributed by Miramax Films

It’s not easy for Austin lovers of foreign films, especially Latin American films. It takes some legwork to find regular screenings in the city.

But you can treat yourself and a valentine to the classic Mexican film “Like Water for Chocolate” at 8:45 p.m. Feb. 17 at one of my favorite places to catch Latin American movies — the East Austin dance studio Esquina Tango on Pedernales Street.

Esquina Tango dance studio also offers screenings of Latin American films.

The 1992 award-winning drama about forbidden love was the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever released in the U.S. at the time. The screening is part of the studio’s Noche de Película, or movie night, series, which features subtitled films every third Friday of the month. The laid-back events are BYOB and there’s a suggested $5 donation. Keep up with the movie schedule at esquinatangoaustin.com.
