Film Noir with BC May

Maltese Falcon

By David Johanssen

Film Noir is a cinematic term used to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Film Noir encompasses a range of plots: the central figure may be a private eye (The Big Sleep), a plainclothes policeman (The Big Heat), an aging boxer (The Set-Up), a hapless grifter (Night and the City), a law-abiding citizen lured into a life of crime (Gun Crazy), or simply a victim of circumstance (D.O.A.). If you love classics and you want to learn more about film noir, then don’t miss this series at Shelter Theater.

Starting Wednesday, October 14, BC May will begin our noir series with a presentation of The Maltese Falcon. BC will also host a workshop on the noir genre after the films. Come and see these classics on the biggest screen in Centro! 50 pesos.

Friday, October 9, at 4 pm: Growing Up Transgendered. Just a generation ago, it was adults, not kids, who changed genders. But today, many children are transitioning, too—with new medical options and at younger and younger ages. Frontline takes viewers on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside the struggles and choices facing transgender kids and their families. 50 pesos.

Saturday, October 10, at 4pm Shelter Theater presents the best of Through the Wormhole. For the next eight weeks we will present the highest rated episodes of this amazing series. Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman hosts and narrates Through the Wormhole, a series that explores some of the deepest mysteries of existence. These are the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity: What are we made of? What was there before the beginning? Are we really alone? What do aliens look like? Can mankind live forever? Now, science has evolved to the point where hard facts and evidence may be able to provide us with answers instead of philosophical theories.

Shelter Theater is part of the Shelter VG4 Cultural Center, located at Vicente Guerrero 4, a 10-minute walk from the Jardín down Insurgentes. Telephone 154 7524 or visit to see upcoming events. Taxi service available. Shelter VG4’s theater and class/performance space are available for rent. We welcome proposals for activities and events!
