The Interview: Defend Free Speech
By David Johanssen
On December 17, Sony canceled the theatrical release of The Interview in the interest of safety because the “Guardians of Peace,” a group the FBI believes has ties to North Korea, threatened terrorist attacks against cinemas that played the film. The North Korean government threatened “merciless” action against the United States if the film was released.

Tuesday, January 13 at 5pm Shelter presents a documentary and discussion on The Other Side of Immigration. The documentary asks why so many Mexicans have left home to work in the United States and what’s happened to the families and communities they’ve left behind. “The Other Side of Immigration does more than any other work to give people otherwise disparaged as ‘threatening’ and ‘illegal a human face,” according to Douglas S. Massey, Princeton University. 40 pesos.
Join us every Tuesday at 7:30pm for the Open Mic. It’s always a great show with a different line up of amateurs and professionals week by week. 30 pesos (includes drink).
