Long Beach Opera Cinema Brings Traffic to The Art Theatre
2013-01-30 · By Editor
From blood-thirsty Scottish Lords to power-thirsty drug lords, Long Beach Opera promises a season of unbridled passions and primal struggles of power! However, the pre-season anticipation begins not on the screen not the stage. They have planned a motley lineup of films to compliment each one of the boundary-pushing productions of Long Beach Opera’s upcoming season.
Bring your cinephile friends and share a silver screen experience at The Art Theatre that will be just as unexpected as the borderline season!
Gabriela Ortiz’s opera Camelia la Texana: Only the Truth is a docu-opera about a dangerous smuggling operation from Mexico to Los Angeles.
Prepare for that journey with a wider look at the seedy network of drug traffickers and the officers trying to stop them. Steven Soderbergh’s Academy Award winning film provides a panorama of characters from both sides of the border, creating three vignettes that follow the dealings of king-pins, crooked cops, users, and dealers.
Traffic will be screened on Saturday, February 23, 11:30 a.m. at the Art Theatre Long Beach 2025 East 4th Street, Long Beach CA 90814
Sit back, relax, and become immersed in the dark themes of smuggled contraband. Tickets are sold at the door; $10 for the movie, pre-movie lecture with Andreas Mitisek and refreshments – mimosas and coffee. Free parking is available behind the venue.
