Movies at the Museum: Viva Zapata!

One of our favorite things to do on a Sunday afternoon is hit up Phoenix Art Museum's repertory-film series. For one thing, it's free. Second, it's free. Three, the movies are projected on a real screen as opposed to a wobbly reject from your old grade-school history class. Four, the theater's blissfully, almost painfully cold during summer. Five, we actually met our future wife there during a screening of Tommy. (It's true!) And, six, they show some pretty cool stuff -- for free! This time around, it's Marlon Brando chewing the south-of-the-border scenery as saddle-tramp revolutionary Emiliano Zapata in Elia Kazan's socially conscious oater from 1952. Hi-yo-sil -- uh, tierra y libertad!
