Picnic lunch and a movie
By Arlene Krasner
One of our best events last year was an “English Tea and a Movie” at the Pocket Theater. We had such a great time that we decided to do kick off our event year with this great program.

Enjoy the ambiance of San Miguel’s plush Pocket Theater on Thursday, July 25, with friends and members of Mujeres en Cambio. We’ll start with a picnic lunch and then we’ll view a movie. We’ll end the afternoon with fantastic array of decadent desserts – all prepared by members – with tea or coffee. A cash bar for wine will also be available.
We’ll be showing two movies for this event. In 1994, Ang Lee wrote and directed, Eat Drink Man Woman, a story about food and family. In 2001, the movie – also about food and family — was adapted for a new audience and renamed, Tortilla Soup. You’ll have your choice of which movie you’d like to see.
This is a not-to-be-missed event. Most importantly, you’ll be reinventing the life of a young woman in search of education. Proceeds from our fabulous lunch and movie event at the Pocket Theater will provide a year’s scholarship for a deserving campo student who might otherwise have to drop out of school.
Learn more about Mujeres en Cambio’s 18 years of dedicated service committed to empowering the lives of rural Mexican women. Specifically, more than 97 percent of our event proceeds go directly toward providing education scholarships that transform the lives of 150 young women each year. As a Mujeres supporter or volunteer you, too, can impact a girl’s ability to help herself, her family and her community.
Tickets are 200 pesos, and must be purchased in advance at La Conexion (Aldama 3 or Cafe Monet), or Solutions (Mesones 57).
