Screening of El Hijo De La Novia @ Civic Theatre
7:30 p.m.

The Museum continues its partnership with Civic Theatre of Allentown to bring you this series of films from Latin American filmmakers in conjunction with our summer exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art.

Tonight’s movie is El Hijo De La Novia (Son of the Bride, Argentina, 2001). At age forty-two, Rafael Belvedere is having a crisis. He lives in the shadow of his father, he feels guilty about rarely visiting his aging mother, his ex-wife says he doesn't spend enough time with their daughter, and he has yet to make a commitment to his girlfriend. At his lowest point, a minor heart attack reunites him with Juan Carlos, a childhood friend, who helps Rafael to reconstruct his past and look at the present in new ways.

The movie is screened at Civic Theatre of Allentown, 527 North Nineteenth Street, Allentown. Tickets are $8 for Museum and Civic members with ID, $10 general admission. Advanced purchase available at
