Teatro Santa Ana reopened
By Sandra Ríos
The Teatro Santa Ana reopened its doors this past July 1. After two years of absence, Jose Luis Mendoza—who began operating this cultural space in 1999—returns again to manage it. Teatro Santa Ana will also offer movies and an art gallery with a new image.
The movie-theater has a new stage floor made of wood covered with linoleum. The dressing room floor has been painted with polyurethane varnish that is resistant to burns and rugged use. The lobby was reconditioned with a red carpet. Teatro Santa Ana has been newly equipped with a six-channel mixer and a jellyfish that goes from the stage to the sound booth and with Internet service that will be available for schools, universities or video conferencing. Those who wants to book, can write to firstname.lastname@example.org, to the attention of Jose Luis Mendoza, with project description, entry cost, members, technical requirements and dates.
As for the Cinemateca, the Sala Gabriel Figueroa now has a big screen and surround sound, and will continue screening foreign and independent films with option of a drink. The gallery opened with an exhibition of Polish posters dedicated to cinema from the collection of Martin Rosenberg. They are on display and for sale throughout July as a link to GIFF (Guanajuato International Film Festival), whose guest country for its 2014 edition will be Poland.
