This summer, AARP Texas, in collaboration with the City of Austin, is hosting Cine de Oro to celebrate the Golden Era of Mexican cinema. Until late November, the free monthly film screenings are held at 9 a.m. on the last Tuesday of every month at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, at 600 River Street in Austin.

At each screening, a different film will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles, followed by a healthy lunch.

In the 1930s, the Mexican film industry began to thrive, and the Golden Era of Mexican cinema was born. This age fostered the development of renowned Mexican and Hispanic films, directors and actors that helped shape motion pictures for decades to follow.
