Friday, April 21, at 5pm: The Candidate. It’s today’s Washington “deja vu all over again” as Robert Redford stars in this 1972 gritty tale of an idealistic attorney whose high standards are soiled by his run for political office. The Village Voice calls it, “The first and arguably sharpest exposé of the media-determined American political process … Redford’s strongest dramatic role.” 100 pesos (includes drink).

Wednesday, April 26 at 5pm: Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Get ready for Cinco de Mayo with John Huston’s 1948 treasure-hunt classic starring drifter Humphrey Bogart, down and out in Tampico. Roger Ebert noted, “The movie has never really been about gold but about character, and Bogart fearlessly [portrays] a pathetic, frightened, selfish man.” 100 pesos (includes drink).

Friday, April 28, at 5pm: Brave New World. Shelter presented the dystopian 1984 earlier in April. Now, we show a futuristic totalitarian society where babies are genetically engineered and minds are conditioned to obey. Old School Reviews warns, “This adaptation of Huxley’s great work is highly recommended as a worthwhile glimpse into the world which we are indeed headed toward.” 100 pesos (includes drink).

Got a story or a song? Now share it on the Shelter stage free of charge. We’re looking for   performers for Open Mic, and all this month, they’ll enjoy free cover every Tuesday at 7 pm. Audience 50 pesos, includes drink. We love off the wall, so come show us how weird you can get! “So, where the heck is Shelter Theater?” Nearby! Our logo’s on the Qué Pasa map in the upper left-hand corner, an easy 10-minute walk from the Jardin. See our calendar at for dates and online tickets. Shelter VG4’s theater and class/performance space are available for private events. Like us on Facebook, Trip Advisor, and the Civil List!
