Film: The Mamboniks

2 pm

Lox and bagels meet salsa and congos in Peabody Award winner Lex Gillespie’s joyous and singular celebration of the Jewish love affair with Latin music and dance, set in New York, Havana, Miami Beach, and the Catskill Mountains. During the 1950s, free-spirited, mostly Jewish dancers from New York City fell head over heels for the mambo, the hot dance from Cuba that became a worldwide sensation. Their love for Latin rhythms earned them a nickname: the “mamboniks.” Now retired, yet still dancing in Florida, a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers from the ‘50s share a passion that age has not cooled. With colorful first-person accounts and an infectious Afro-Cuban soundtrack including Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, and “mambo king” Pérez Prado, The Mamboniks explores a largely unexamined and exhilarating aspect of Jewish life and culture, and a time when Jews, Latinos, and African-Americans met on the dance floor, although America was racially segregated and anti-Semitism was commonplace.

2018; Lex Gillespie; English; 89 minutes; not rated.

Following the screening, join us in the lobby outside the theatre to celebrate the film, and the finale of the 6th Annual ABQ Jewish Film Fest, with a “Cuban nosh” provided by La Fonda del Bosque and a cash bar provided by Pop Fizz.

The Jewish Community Center’s 6th Annual ABQ Jewish Film Fest features six recently released film premieres, weaving a colorful tapestry of uniquely Jewish stories that come from around the world. The NHCC is partnering with the JCC on the screenings of Leona (July 20) and The Mamboniks (July 28).

Tickets are being sold by the Jewish Community Center; $10 in advance, $12 at the door, $55 for a full festival pass (6th Annual ABQ Jewish Film Fest)

Cardboard Playhouse Presents Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition

August 2August 4
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

7 pm—Friday
2 pm—Saturday & Sunday

Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition features the Academy Award-winning score from Disney’s animated classic, with lyrics in both Spanish and English and a revamped plot that creates dramatic necessity for the bilingual script. The story begins centuries ago, when the royalty of Agrabah spoke one language and the citizens another. Communication is impossible without translation—which is controlled by the evil vizier, Jafar. When the rebellious princess Jazmin and a delinquent street rat, Aladdin, meet in the marketplace, they find something special in one another. Together, they work to transcend the barriers between them, and, with a little magic, help create a better future for themselves and for Agrabah. This touching musical adventure will thrill both Spanish- and English-speaking audiences!
