Día de los Muertos After Dark: Noche de Cine y Mezcal

Join us on Thursday, December 6th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm for the last Día de los Muertos After Dark of the season. Galleries will stay open late, all are invited to a screening of Una Familia de Tantas, sample delicious treats with Taco Joint, and guests over 21 can enjoy a mezcal tasting with S.A.C.R.E.D.

We’re thrilled to be joined by Lou Bank of S.A.C.R.E.D. (Saving Agave for Culture, Recreation, Education and Development) this month! Learn all about mezcal with Bank as he pours free tastes of heirloom agave spirits and shares stories of how they are made and the people who make them. Please be prepared to show an ID.

Una Familia de Tantas is a 1949 Mexican film directed by Alejandro Galindo. This film is presented by Cineteca Nacional and will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles. Read the full movie description here. Seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Don’t miss your last “after dark” chance to see the one-of-a-kind ofrendas and art centered on traditional and contemporary themes of Day of the Dead. Día de Muertos: A Spiritual Legacy closes on December 9th.

Food samplings are generously sponsored by Taco Joint. Taco Joint offers authentic Mexican comfort food in Chicago’s Lincoln Park and River North neighborhoods.
