Who Killed the Maya?

By David Johanssen


Film Suddenly Last Summer

The vast civilization of the Maya existed for over 3,000 years with populations numbering in the millions. The Maya were far more advanced than the Mesoamerican civilizations that came before or after them: they had a fully developed written language, a superb understanding of mathematical and astrological systems, and an advanced knowledge of architecture and construction techniques. The Maya empire fell into decline in the eight and ninth centuries and the cities were later abandoned; there is no universally accepted theory that explains the collapse. Did this powerful civilization fall into ruin because of overpopulation, foreign invasion, peasant revolt, the collapse of key trade routes? Or perhaps environmental disaster, epidemic disease, or climate change such as drought?

Join us for a discussion on this compelling topic Tuesday, November 11, at 5pm as Shelter Theater continues its documentary series with Who Killed the Maya? Nikolai Grube helped crack the code of their ancient hieroglyphs carved in stone and preserved in just four books. His quest to push the boundaries of what we know about how these people lived and died leads to the story of a powerful woman. New biographical evidence paints a bloody picture of genocide, dark warlords, and a self-styled warrior princess known as Lady Six Sky. 40 pesos.

Friday, November 7, at 7:30pm Michael Jackson Live in Munich. The king of pop as we love to remember him, this concert took place on July 4, 1997, during the HIStory World Tour at the Olympic stadium in Munich with a sold-out attendance of 70,000. It’s a scream. 50 pesos.

Sunday, November 9, at 5pm join us for an unforgettable presentation of Suddenly Last Summer; a Tennessee Williams play adapted for the screen, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Katherine Hepburn. The only son of a wealthy widow, Violet Venable, dies while on vacation with his cousin Catherine. What the girl saw was so horrible that she went insane; now Mrs. Venable wants Catherine lobotomized to cover up the truth. 50 pesos.

Join us every Tuesday at 7:30pm for the Open Mic. It is always a great show with a different line-up of amateurs and professionals week by week. We want you to bring your act to the Open Mic, so come and get your 10 minutes of fame in front of a live audience. Come out and support our local talent. 30 pesos (includes a beverage).

Join us Wednesday, November 12, for Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 thriller, Rear Window, with James Stewart and Grace Kelly. A wheelchair-bound photographer spies on his neighbors from his apartment window and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder. 50 pesos.

Friday, November 14, at 7:30pm Pink Floyd the Wall,  is the unforgettable rock opera from 1982. The movie tells the story of rock singer “Pink” who descends into madness in the midst of his physical and social isolation from everyone.
