We are happy to announce Yes! we are having the 13th Ajijic Jewish Film Festival at the Cine+Lago theater (renamed from CineMagic) in the Bugambilias Plaza on the Carretera. It will begin on 8 January 2023 and run for eight consecutive Sundays.
Proof of vaccination will not be required this year. All patrons are encouraged to bring and use a facemask for your own added safety. As was true last year, all theater staff are vaccinated and each Sala has its own independent air circulation system to the outside roof.
We are offering seasonal RESERVED SEATING to make life a little easier for all and to minimize the need to queue in the lobby before a performance.

Michael Sullivan will oversee sales on 19 December at the Channukah party.
Subsequent sales will be overseen by Maureen Davis at the dates, times, and locations shown above. No need to contact Maureen beforehand – just show up. Season tickets

Maureen Sullivan, LCJC President, says: “This is the best set of movies we have ever presented. Each film offers a new and different perspective of the past and present of the Jewish people. Yet the stories apply to us all.”
