When it comes to the movies, do lower expectations and rising ticket prices seem to be playing out like a …well, like a bad movie?
Let the 10th Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival’s “Cinema en tu Idioma” – running from August through November – raise your expectations multiplied by 8.
At the same time, with today’s deal, Reader Steals is going to help with those ticket prices, too – by offering you the Latino Film Festival’s “Cinema en tu Idioma” $80 worth of admission to view all 8 films for only $30.
That’s 63 percent off – and less than $4 per admission to the most creative and captivating work of the newest filmmakers coming out of Latin America, Mexico and Spain.
But before we start rolling the credits, let’s show you how this package works:
Each month you’ll be a special guest at UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas at the Hazard Center in San Diego.
At that time you’ll have an opportunity to screen two films made for and by the Latino community – films you can rarely see anywhere else in the US!

Taking this month’s offerings for starters, if you like movies, you’re going to love what the San Diego Film Festival’s “Cinema en tu Idioma” has to offer:
– "Regresa": Her workaholic husband Ernesto’s late hours and little time for love drives Maria to hypnosis to deal with her suspicions that he’s carrying on a dalliance – but instead of coming back from her session as Maria, she returns home as a 15th century Basque Princess who gives Ernesto the royal treatment…Fri., Sun., Tue., Thurs at 11:30 a.m., 4 and 8:30 p.m. & Sat., Mon., Wed., 1:45, 6:15 and 10:45 p.m.
– "Musica en Espera": A composer with writer’s block, Ezekiel is inspired by a fleet passage of “muzak” he hears over the phone while on hold with his bank. A single mother-to-be and bank employee Paola agrees to help him find this piece of phony phone music that will break his slump; in exchange, Ezekiel must pose as Paola’s boyfriend while her tradition-minded mother makes a visit.
