Mexican Golden Age Cinema

To celebrate the National Day of Mexican Cinema on 15 Aug, we’ve teamed up with the Mexican Embassy in UK and the Cineteca Nacional in Mexico City to bring you a spectacular season of Mexican Golden Age Cinema.

Enjoy these exquisite examples of Mexican classics, film noir and screen goddesses in newly restored and digitalised prints that promise an extremely high-quality big screen experience.

The season opens with an all-time classic La Perla (Emilio Fernández, 1945) and then delves into the stellar career of Roberto Gavaldón, a filmmaker who challenged the prevailing Mexican machismo through male-centred melodrama and female stars often cast against type.
